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


This small country cemetery is northwest of Waverly, Illinois, Morgan County - T. 14 N R 8 W, Section 22. It is just north of the Little York Methodist Church. Some stones were standing in the 1950's but cattle and people have destroyed it. For some years it was fenced but cattle tore down the fence and people did not replace the fence. Many early Morgan County pioneers are buried here. On April 13, 1975, Mr. and Mrs. Guy W. Martin and Reuben Bates, Jr. visited the cemetery and uncovered some of the stones. These and some known burials are in the following list.
