Cemetery transcription by members of the Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society

Berea Cemetery is adjacent to Berea Christian Church, alongside the highway between Alexander and Ashland. It lies six miles from each community. It is in the southeast quarter of the northwest quarter of Section 19 Township 16 N Range 8 W. The Berea church congregation was organized in 1852 and was using a frame building by 1855. In 1924 the present red brick structure was erected. The adjoining cemetery appears to date from at least as far back as 1825 when 6 month old Amelia Robinson was interred. This child's tombstone ranks among the earliest to be found in Morgan County. There are no known burial plot records for the older part of Berea Cemetery. The newer portion of the cemetery has been surveyed and laid out in lots. There is a small endowment fund for maintenance purposes and the cemetery is kept in excellent condition. This index has been compiled from the cemetery readings of Mrs. Ruth Ann Reiser Stewart and Shirley A. Stewart Aleguas, from records of Mrs. Myra Martin and Mr. Robert Dalton, from obituaries and from original death certificates.
