Located on Harts Prairie on the southern edge of Morgan County, the legal description of this burial ground is in Section 34 of Township 13 N Range 9 W. The cemetery is slightly more than one-half mile north of the Morgan and Macoupin county line, and is nearly a half-mile south of the Harts Prairie Missionary Baptist Church. The new church building was formally dedicated on Sunday, Jan. 9, 1881, with Elder W.P. (Billy) Hart preaching the dedicatory sermon to an overflow crowd. When approaching the church from the west on the Nortonville-Waverly road (also known as State Aid Road 18 and Road 100N) it is possible to see the taller tombstones in the cemetery unless the crops are too high. When walking to the cemetery either from the church, or east from the road known both as State Aid Road 9 and as Road 2676E, it is necessary to crawl under a single strand of electrified fence wire. A visit to the cemetery on April 28, 1970 found the cemetery to be badly overgrown and unkept. But a visit on Dec. 28, 1976 found the cemetery to be well-mowed and cleared of all brush. The fence was in excellent condition. A large portion of the tombstones are toppled and broken, and some graves are badly sunken. A small maintenance fund for the cemetery is administered by Wemple State Bank of Waverly. A large portion of the readings listed here for Hartland Cemetery tombstones were made by Mrs. Roberta Fanning Hutton of Jacksonville. Persons interested in families interred in Hartland Cemetery should investigate the burials made in Bull Cemetery, which is about one-half mile northeast of Hartland Cemetery.

*From Donna L. Banbury: "Actually,
this is Charles Edgar Fanning
B 9-30-1867 died 3-10-1889.
He was 21yrs 6 mths 10 days old
when he died. The picture of his
headstone is hard to read, however
other Illinois records indicate this
is a fact. This has caused a great
deal of confusion on genealogy
websites. It took me several months
to come to the conclusion that the
stone was misread or there was
a clerical error. According to my
grandmother, Myrtle Fanning
Kelley, his sister, he was killed
as a young man when kicked
in the head by a horse."
