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


Also known as the Austif Cemetery. This cemetery was read during October 1982 by Mrs. Ruth Ann Stewart. Bull Cemetery may be reached by driving 5½ miles southeast of Nortonville, in southern Morgan County. The cemetery is at the end of a rock lane and is about ¼ mile north of State Aid Road 16. Depending on what crops are planted and the season of the year, this cemetery can sometimes be seen from the road. Well kept, Bull Cemetery is on a gentle knoll, mostly grassy, but boasting some cedar and oak trees. A small watercourse separates the cemetery from little known Austif Park, which a marker indicates was donated by J.W. Austif. This cemetery should not be confused with Hartland Cemetery which lies about ½ mile south and slightly west of Bull Cemetery. Bull Cemetery is northeast of Hart's Prairie Missionary Baptist Church while Hartland Cemetery is south of the church.
