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


Fenced and well cared for, this cemetery lies to the north of Highway U.S. 36-54, west of Jacksonville. It can be seen from the highway and is in the southeast quarter of the southeast quarter of Section 28 of Township 15 N Range 11 W. It is believed that other burials were made on the north side of the north fence but the grave markers have been removed and the land is now under cultivation.
