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


This rural cemetery is about 5 1/2 miles directly east of Meredosia. To visit this well-kept, fenced cemetery, turn off Illinois Route 104 at the gravel road just southeast of the intersection of Illinois Routes 104 and 100. Another way of saying this is to take the gravel road northeastward from Hodges (Muntman) Cemetery, which is located on Meredosia Hill. Drive eastward on the gravel road for about 2 1/2 miles, until you reach the first road that runs south. Drive south on this good gravel road for one-half mile and you are at Tholen Cemetery. Tholen Cemetery is in the south-west quarter of the northeast quarter of Section 28 in Township 16 N and Range 12 W. Every tombstone is erect and the cemetery is obviously well cared for.
