Before Griggsville got "big", the cemetery was sitting out in the prairie and was called Griggsville Prairie Cemetery.

There used to be lots of graves marked with stones or wooden crosses, so your relative could be buried there and the marker gone or unmarked.

Any chance they were listed in the county death book? Sometimes they tell where they were buried.
