Need Complete Cemetery Listing for Dongola Cemeter

Dongola Cemetery, also known as Friendship Baptist Church Cemetery in Dongola, MO Bollinger County is the cemetery listing I am trying to find. I have the version from "Gone But Not Forgotten" publication, but it is incomplete and is missing many names as well as dates. I have gotten two other versions from a previous Dongola Cemetery Board Member and the current Dongola Cemetery Board Member (Jewel Reimler and Jerry Winchester) in 2000 & 2001, these were listings that were hand done according to stones readable in 2000 and 2001, with many unmarked and unreadable headstones in the listings. I appreciated very much their efforts and time in preparing these lists, but I was then, as I am now wanting a complete list that goes much further back than 2000 is more complete than what I have now. I have an obituary on my great grandfather and a Record of Funeral on him from Wilson Funeral Home, both items state he is buried in Dongola Cemetery, yet, he is not listed on any of the 3 listings I spoke of above. I have no firm evidence my Great Grandmother and Great Uncle are also buried in Dongola Cemetery, but I believe if my great grandfather is, they are as well. The names I am looking for in Dongola Cemetery are: Great Gandfather: Thomas Grant Revelle (b. 3-22 or 3-30-1869 d. 10-2-1943), Great Grandmother: Emma Lou (Robinson) Revelle (b. 12-1873 d. 1916) and my Great Uncle (Thomas & Emma's oldest son) Oliver G. Revelle (b. 9-1893 d. 1915 or no later than 2-1916). I believe they are all buried together, and I only have Thomas' obituary and his Record of Funeral to go by for this information (and they both say he is buried there), why can't I find him on any listing of that cemetery so far? I have been trying to get a good listing of that cemetery now for 2.5 yrs. and need some help. I've even written to the Bollinger County Historical Society, with not luck to date from them either. I sent them the listings I had, so they wouldn't send me the same ones, but haven't heard back from them at all for over a month now on that subject. Do you know of a Funeral Home who might know that has been around for ages? I've personally been to this cemetery and searched for my famililes headstones and did not find them. I know for a fact there are older headstones there than 1915, 1916 and certainly 1943, so it can't be it crumbled from old age. I just have this gut feeling, someone has this listing tucked away somewhere in their files. Maybe even an city official or county official? I definitely need some help here with this. Thanks for reading this and taking the time to consider my my query. Lynette Davey of VA
