Wornall Family Plot

John Bristow Wornall, born October 12, 1822 in Kentucky, was a successful businessman and noted Kansas City pioneer. John's 3rd wife, Roma Johnson Wornall, purchased this family lot after John's death on November 22, 1892, making it one of the oldest lots in the cemetery. 

A number of family members previously interred elsewhere were relocated to this lot. Those relocated include Reuben Johnson, father of Roma and brother of Rev. Thomas Johnson; George Thomas Wornall, John's brother; Judith A. Wornall, John's mother; and Matilda Polk Wornall, John's first wife.

Roma is also interred in this lot, while John's second wife (Roma's cousin), Eliza Shalcross Johnson Wornall, remains interred with their five children who died in infancy, her parents, and many of her siblings, in the Shawnee Methodist Mission Cemetery in Fairway, Johnson County, Kansas.
