Bittick Cemetery, Douglas County, Missouri

Cemetery sign donated by Alvin & Betty Bittick, Charles A. & Versal (Bittick) Rogers and families.

The Thomas H. Bittick family moved from Maries County, Missouri to what is now Douglas County sometime between 1864 and 1870.  His father, John R. Bittick, and the rest of Thomas' siblings moved from Maries County to Dallas County between 1860 and 1870, then to Douglas County probably before 1876 but definitely by 1880.  The cemetery, located near the North Fork River in Clinton Township, eastern Douglas County, Missouri, was established prior to 1878 on land formerly owned by Bittick family members.
