LEE MISSION CEMETERY

Diamond Square

Diamond Square is located in the center of Old Section at what is now the back of the cemetery.  It was, in earlier times, actually the front of the cemetery with an entrance located to the east of Diamond Square.  This section contains some of the earliest of the missionary family burials.  The configuration for Diamond Square shown below was taken from the early plot books. It appears that changes were later made to accommodate the roadway that passes next to it. Some of the burials appear to have been moved into an adjoining section as noted.
