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


Six miles southwest of Jacksonville public square are the remaining tombstones of Horrell Cemetery. The cemetery site itself is situated on a gentle area of high ground that is now a cultivated field. The tombstones were removed several years ago and placed in a wooded area immediately to the west of the field, and on the east side of a small stream. Even with detailed directions it is difficult to find the flattened tombstones in the dense brush. The cemetery is within sight of the Winchester-Jacksonville highway, and is in nearly the exact center of the northeast quarter of Section 32 in Township 15 N Range 11 W. It is on a direct line from Allinson Cemetery to Richardson Cemetery and is almost exactly the center point between those two cemeteries.
