Where is that Burial Location?

This part of the death certificate of Anna Jane Brice who died in 1918 in Caldwell County, Missouri. She's connected to the Brice family I've been working on for an upcoming issue.

The place of burial initially stumped me--I thought it was simply College Grove Cemetery. Spelled incorrectly, and maybe near a former college or something.

Turns out it was Cottage Grove Cemetery and the "t"s simply were not crossed. Every other "t" on the death certificate was crossed except for these two.

We'll see more about Anna and her family in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues. This family has several Annas and it is easy to get them confused.
