Cooper Hill Cemetery, Osage County MO

Several souces say "Cooper Hill Cem" is aka "Cooper Cem".

Looking for cemetery burial records for following persons.

John Gordon Brown
BIRTH 04 SEP 1852 • Crawford County, Missouri, USA
DEATH 12 MAR 1936 • Merrimac Twp, Phelps County, Missouri, USA

Lena Anna Shanks Brown
BIRTH 23 JUL 1867 • Missouri, United States
DEATH 31 DEC 1937 • Merrimac, Phelps County, Missouri

Both death certificates for above say they are buried in "Cooper Cemetery". No location given. There is no Cooper Cem in Phelps Co. Cooper Hill is 36 miles almost straight north of St James, Phelps Co, MO.

I also have family info from their daughter-in-law that Lena is buried in Cooper Cem, next to her parents:

Joseph "Preacher" "Elder" Shanks
BIRTH 12 AUG 1830 • Hawkins, Tennessee, USA
DEATH 30 JUN 1907 • Crawford County, Missouri, United States

Elizabeth Ridenhour Shanks
BIRTH JUL 1833 • Franklin, Missouri, United States
DEATH 1 FEB 1907 • Crawford, Missouri, United States

Cooper Hill Cem makes good sense for Joseph and Elizabeth as they lived most of their lives in Maries and Osage Counties.

Any help greatly appreciated. I believe all of the above to be unmarked graves.
