Farmers State Bank and Trust Company of Jacksonville administers a trust fund for maintenance of this unusual cemetery. The cemetery is atop a bluff that gives a magnificent view of the Illinois River Valley and parts of the counties of Morgan, Scott, Pike and Brown. A thick, decorative concrete wall about three feet high protects the remaining gravesites from wandering cattle and encroaching farm machinery. A large central granite tombstone has all the Augustine names on it, and individual matched granite stones with initials mark the individual graves. Outside the wall, remnants of other tombstones can be found, but are too weathered and broken to be read. Augustine Cemetery is a few yards more than one-half mile north of the Morgan-Scott county line and can be seen from Illinois Route 100. The cemetery is east of the highway and north of Spring Run, a waterway. Legal description of the site is in Section 36 of Township 16 N and Range 13 W. This is about three miles southeast of Meredosia and one mile southwest of Beagle Cemetery.
