    That's a great little cemetery, full of historic graves in addition to David Whitmer. Bob Ford, the man who shot Jesse James, is a Richmond native and is buried a few yards from Whitmer. Judge Austin A. King, the magistrate who bound Joseph, Hyrum, and the brethren over to be held in Liberty Jail, is also buried there. If you make the norther Missouri LDS history tour, get off the beaten Visitor's Center path and go to Richmond.
