The web site for the cemetery give the address in Shawnee.

So wouldn't that  be right?  Mission is part of the name fo the cemetery.
I hate the maps on Find a Grave, by the way. They have neighborhood names sometimes, and other such oddities and there are no town or city limits displayed.

When you look at the city limit map on google maps, it looks like it is DEFINITELY not in "Mission, Kansas". I rarely go by the website address given because sometimes that is a mailing address, and not the physical location.
The problem with postal addresses for cemeteries is that they may not be anywhere near the physical location of the cemetery. This happens a lot.

Doesn't look to be in SHawnee, either, by the map.

I use open street maps, if it has a city limits it shows it on their maps.  You might need to adjust the magnifier a bit until it shows it to you, also shows county lines.  I usually just plug in the coordinates but you can use an address if you have one.
