Cemetery Lookup: Andrew STEEL or STEELE, died 1858 in Granby

I need a lookup for my gg grandfather Andrew STEELE [also spelled STEEL]. He would have been born about 1813-1819 in Missouri, and died 1858 in Granby, Newton County.

The obituary for his wife, Mary "Polly" Caroline (Campbell) STEELE [born 1822 in Missouri] said her husband, Andrew STEELE, died in Granby, Missouri in 1858.

According to postings I've read, I understand there are 2 cemeteries in Granby, and a few others not too far away. The older one would probably be where Andrew was buried. Andrew and Polly had 4 sons before the 1850 census. Their son, William Henry STEELE, is my great grandfather [born in Missouri in 1842]. The family moved to Kansas after Andrew's death.

Would someone please do a cemetery lookup for me and let me know if the old cemetery in Granby might still have a gravestone showing his name, dates of birth and death and anything else that may be on the stone? Or, if there was a book published listing burials of people in that cemetery, would someone please tell me the information printed about him and the name of the book?

Thank you,
