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


The tombstone readings for this overgrown cemetery were made in 1966, 1967, and 1968 by Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Lovekamp, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Fox, and Keith and Carroll Lovekamp. In 1966 they found only one stone still standing, that of Mary E. Williamson. Livestock had roamed in the cemetery. Several stones had been stacked in a fencerow, while others were partially buried and had to be dug up in order to read the inscriptions. According to a Cass County History book, John Savage built the house which stands on the same farm where Morrison Cemetery is located. The neglected cemetery is about 2¼ miles northwest of Concord. Legal description of the cemetery site is in the northeast quarter of Section 13 in Township 16 N and Range 12 W (SW corner N½ SE¼ NE¼ 13 - 16 - 12 pm.
