Location:  The cemetery is located several miles west of South West City, Missouri. Named for Dr. William D. Polson, and for the Polsons; their related families, which include The Ridge, Stand Watie, the Bells, etc. Washborne's and Washbourne's are buried here and they are all of the same family; a branch decided to renew the "old World" spelling i.e. Washbourne. Many of these people were related, and of the Cherokee Nation by blood heritage. Cemetery was surveyed in 2004.  (Patricia E. Jones)
