Unmarked CRONEY graves in TRAIL Cemetery

In the the old Trail Cemetery near Dora, Missouri there are four unmarked graves in what appears to be the Croney section of the cemetery. Does anyone know who is buried in these graves? There are three marked graves: [1] Etta Odessie Croney (born and died Mar 10, 1907) [2] Frances Menion Croney (1829-1907) [3] Merion Croney (died 1940). The four unmarked graves are to the left of these and are marked with a common fieldstone. I have been told that Scelia CRONEY (b. ABT 1796 in SC, d. Aft 1880 in Ozark Co, MO) may be buried in the Trail Cemetery and I think there is a possibily the she may be buried in one of these graves. Scelia CRONEY is the mother of Margaret Bethena CRONEY (b. 10-Oct-1830 in GA, d. 11-Apr-1902 in Ozark Co., MO) and Frances Merion CRONEY (b. 1829, d. 1907 in Ozark Co. MO). If Scelia was buried here, it could explain why Frances was buried here in 1907 as there were no other marked Croney graves here at that time. If anyone has any definite info on this, or know of any possibilities, conjectures, etc., please let me know.
