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



East of Prentice and within sight and sound of that village is Flinn Cemetery. It is possible to see this cemetery from the highway, although it is nearly a quarter of a mile from the road. Dense growth and briar bushes discourage a person from entering. Trees have fallen from old age and high winds, and damaged many stones. The location is in the northeast quarter of Section 7, Township 16 North, Range 8 West of the 3rd Principal Meridian, in Morgan County, Illinois.
