Lurton Cemetery, Jacksonville
Cemetery transcription by members of the Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society
The word "cemetery" is not correct terminology in this case, because only one burial was made here. The burial was made on the grounds of a brick home that has long since been demolished. The grave is still there, but was never marked. The house and grave were on the west side of the roadway that is commonly known as Black's Lane, a short distance east of Jacksonville. Both the house and grave were located on high ground a few yards south of the branch or creek that crosses the road. Legal description of the site is in the area enclosed in the northwest quarter of the southeast quarter of Section 22 in Township 15 N Range 10 W.
