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



Near the Morgan-Cass county line, this cemetery is in Section 8 in Township 16 N Range 12 W. The burial site is about 300 feet south of the Meredosia-Arenzville road and is about 100 feet above that road, NE1/4, atop a bluff. The iron fence enclosed cemetery cannot be seen from the road because of thick timber. The cemetery is dominated by two red cedar trees and a tall central stone spire that has several names engraved on it. The information given here is supplied by Mr. and Mrs. John Kircher of Jacksonville.
