Cemetery transcription by members of the Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society
An observant traveler on Illinois Route 100 can spot this cemetery which lies a few yards east of the highway, part way up the hills that overlook the Illinois River Valley. Dominated by the gray granite tombstone of Thomas and Barbara Edmunson, this cemetery lies .3 of a mile south of the intersection of Illinois Routes 100 and 104. A fine iron fence surrounds the Beagle family graves. A large stone obelisk lies toppled inside the fence. Hodges Cemetery, also called Muntman Cemetery, on Meredosia Hill, lies about a ½ mile north of Beagle Cemetery.
