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


Believed to have contained three graves, the tombstones and fence were removed from this cemetery several years ago. Dr. Alpha B. Applebee, the present owner, told the writers that in the days of horse drawn farm equipment it was easy to bypass this cemetery. With the introduction of tractors and other mechanized farm equipment, the cemetery was gradually overrun. The fence and stones were removed, but the bodies were not disinterred. The cemetery site is about ¾ of a mile north of the intersection of West Walnut and Finley streets in Jacksonville
