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


Now used as a pasture for cattle, this abandoned cemetery is about two miles northwest of Centerville in southeastern Morgan County. The cemetery is located on Mud Prairie, and strangers in the area should let the name be a warning to them. The road north of Centerville is nothing to brag about, and the road west to near the cemetery is even worse and dead ends. Jones Cemetery is located southwest of Waverly. Read 1 Nov 1959 by Guy & Myra Martin. This cemetery is no longer a burial ground.

** used to denote a soldier.
