Henry Cemetery is located midway between Murrayville and Franklin, in the southeast quarter of the northwest quarter of Section 1, Township 13 N Range 10 W. A single gray granite shaft stands several feet tall and can be seen from the roadways nearby. The other tombstones are either too short to be easily seen from the roads, or are toppled. The unfenced cemetery is on a small knoll, surrounded by cultivated fields.
