Long Description:

County of Church: Barry County.
Location of Church: MO-39 & FR-2035, Madry Date of Church being built is not certain, but I have found newspaper articles of marriages as far back as 1850s.
Did find this currect interesting article about cattle thieves in Madry.
Jan 30, 2006 - In Missouri, thieves have targeted a large swath of the Ozarks region. At the meeting last week at the Madry Store about 40 miles southwest ... Dale Horner, owner of the Madry Store in Madry, Mo., has been living in his RV outside the store for the past seven weeks along with his dog.
The only other building in for a couple of miles is across the highway from the church, and that is the Madry Store.


There is a State Historical Society of Missouri marker in the yard, from 1958. The text of that marker is:

BUTTERFIELD OVERLAND MAIL
In Missouri -- 1858~1861

The John I. Smith Relay Station was 172½ miles
from the Tipton Terminus
and stood in northeast Barry County,
about 7 miles west of Crane.
