Donated land for church

Can anyone help me figure out where the land Charles Lewis donated is for sure. I think it may be where the Shobe Cemetery is located in the Sedalia Country Club. Prairie Township : Section 12 : GPS 384159N - 931749W.I would like to know if this is it. If it isnt it I would like to find the correct cemetery..

I got this information from The History of Pettis County, Missouri
CHURCHES. —In an early day the members of the Church, by the aid of some of the other denominations, built a church house near the north line of this township, but the members were few and they soon scattered and the house fell into decay and was torn down. An old cemetery still marks the place. Messrs. J. C. Donnahue, John Gray, A. Shobe, Brice McVoy, Jackson Quisenberry and Ephraim H. Carrington were the principal supporters of that church. The house was built for church and school purposes. Ephraim H. Carrington was the first person buried in the cemetery. Charles Lewis donated the land for the church and cemetery.
