Cold Water Cemetery is owned and operated by the Missouri State Society Daughters of the American Revolution. Cold Water Cemetery is probably the oldest existing burial ground of the American settlers who came west of the Mississippi River, when those lands were still under the rule of Spain. Two known Revolutionary War Soldiers are buried there, John Patterson, Sr. in 1839, and Eusebius Hubbard in 1818. The Missouri State Society Daughters of the American Revolution have established a traditional Memorial Day Service at Cold Water Cemetery and is held at 10:00 AM on every observed Monday Memorial Day holiday. The Sons of the American Revolution place Memorial Wreaths on this occassion. Cold Water Cemetery is without question, a landmark of the western movement in our country and an integral part of our heritage.
