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


Yatesville was laid out July 16, 1857 by Joseph Hayes and J.R. Bennett. The village failed to achieve any commercial importance. Yatesville Cemetery, about one mile northwest of Yatesville, has become one of the major burying grounds in the area. On May 19, 1850, when James B. Leighton sold the 10 acre site of what is now Yatesville Cemetery to Isaac and George Epler, no mention was made in the deed regarding the burials already on the site. The Eplers paid $12.50 for the land and any structures thereon. "Deed Record Book 17", page 453, dated Feb. 3, 1875, records the sale of the cemetery site for the sum of $1.00, the 10 acres to be used for a bur ial ground. The land was sold by Isaac Epler, Margaret E. Epler, Eliza J. Epler, George H. Epler, John Galt, Margaret Galt, Adeline Epler, Eliza J. Epler, Louis C. Epler, William Epler, Emma Epler, Abram Epler and M.V. Epler, of the county of Sangamon, to Isaac L. Jordon, Francis Carney and C.W. Parrott, trustees of the cemetery. On the same page is a document dated May 26, 1875 at Bedford, Taylor County, Iowa, showing that Abram Epler and M.V. Epler appeared before a notary public and acknowledged that they voluntarily signed the deed. Also on the same page, dated May 24, 1875, is a copy of a document signed in Sangamon County, Illinois, showing that the selle rs of the land appeared before a notary public and acknowledged that the sale of the land was voluntary. The deed was recorded in Morgan County, Illin ois on August 9, 1875. In "Deed Record Book 43", page 175, dated Oct. 7, 1 887, Isaac L. Jordan, Cyrus W. Parrott and Francis Carney, for $1.00, sold the land by quit claim deed to the Yatesville Cemetery Association. The deed was recorded on October 15, 1887. The cemetery board has maintained Yatesville Cemetery in a very commendable manner. Not all of the 10 acres is suitable for burial purposes. The cemetery is on the west side of Little Indian Creek and adjacent to and south of the Literberry-Prentice road. Yatesville Cemetery is 7 1/2 miles east of Literberry and 2 miles west of Prentice in extreme northeastern Morgan County. Legal description of the cemetery is 10 acres off the north end of the east half of the northwest quarter of Section 12 in Township 16 N Range 9 W of the Third Principal Meridian. The tombstones in Yatesville Cemetery were read and transcribed in 1978 by Mr. and Mrs. Robert W. Dalton (Mary Kathryn), her mother Mrs. Emma Mary Grady, and Mrs. Grady's cousin, Mrs. Frances Stapleton.

a much-loved bachelor uncle, James R. Lewis to live with them because he

"hated moving to town." The young couple shared their home and family

with him and took care of him until he died. His own wedding suit still lies in

hands of a Julius Elmore who was about 22 or 23 years of age. Elmore

slashed Coker's throat during a quarrel. In the Jacksonville Daily Journal

of Friday, Aug. 23, 1878, will be found a story telling of Constable Matthew

Lewis of Yatesville being mortally injured by John (or Jackson) Charles.

Charles struck Lewis in the head with a blade of a hatchet when the

constable was seeking a son of Charles. However, the Jacksonville

Journal of Friday, Aug. 30, 1878, said that Constable Matthew Lewis was

recovering from his "murderous injury". About three weeks after the hatchet

attack he was well enough to visit Jacksonville.)

MANCHESTER, David Born in Warren Co., N.Y. 11 Aug 1798

Died 6 Sept 1878

(For much information about this man see pages 413 and 414 of "Portrait

And Biographical Album of Morgan And Scott Counties, Ills." published

in 1889; page 726 of "History of Morgan County, Illinois, 1878"; pages

206 and 207 of "Morgan County Family History, 1976" and the October

1947 issue of "New England Historical And Genealogical Register".

Because retired Army Colonel Katharine Elizabeth Manchester of

Alexandria, Virginia, shared her ancestry with Morgan County, Illinois

relatives, it is possible to trace David Manchester's ancestry back to

Thomas Manchester who was born in England about 1620. Thomas

married Margaret Wood, daughter of John Wood of Portsmouth,

Rhode Island. John Wood died in Portsmouth in 1655. Thomas and

Margaret Wood Manchester became parents of a William Manchester

who was born in Portsmouth, Rhode Island about 1654. William

Manchester married Mary Cook, daughter of John and Mary Borden

Cook of Pocasset, Massachusetts. Mary Borden Cook was a daughter

of Austin Borden. William Manchester died in Tiverton, Rhode Island

on Oct. 15, 1718. William and Mary Cook Manchester became parents

of Thomas Manchester who was born about 1704 and died in 1788.

On Aug. 5 or Aug. 15, 1729 Thomas Manchester married Elizabeth

Jennings who was born in 1705. She died at Tiverton, Rhode Island

on June 20, 1789. They had a son, David Manchester, born Nov. 17,

1732 and he died before March 11 of 1782. David's first marriage

was to Waite Macomber, daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Waite

Macomber. Waite Macomber was born June 21, 1737 and she died

before 1783. David and Waite Macomber Manchester became

parents of Thomas Manchester who was born in 1761 and died

Feb. 25, 1840. The second wife of Thomas Manchester was

Elizabeth Brewer who died Feb. 25 or 26, 1846. Thomas and

Elizabeth Brewer Manchester were the parents of David Manchester

who buried in Yatesville Cemetery.)
