This well-kept rural cemetery is located seven miles east of Jacksonville, on the north side of the Old State Road. Legal description of the cemetery site places it in the southeast quarter of Section 9 of Township 15 N Range 9 W. Antioch Christian Church was formerly located adjacent to the cemetery. That building was moved to Ashland around 1955 and was still used for church purposes as late as April 1978. Antioch Cemetery was not incorporated until July 14, 1873. Shortly thereafter bodies were removed from nearby family cemeteries and re-interred in Antioch Cemetery. It is believed that an unusually large number of Negroes are buried in this cemetery, being family members of workers hired by the Strawn family. For a time this cemetery was the second burial site of the famous preacher, Elder Barton W. Stone. His body has since been disinterred and removed to Cane Ridge, Kentucky. A list of burials published in the Jacksonville Journal of Jan. 29, 1911 should be disregarded as it contains many errors.

(This is the same child listed on 16th page
of this listing. The following news story
appeared in the Jacksonville Journal of
Thursday, July 25, 1861: SAD ACCIDENT –
On Saturday before last, a fearful accident
occurred at Antioch church to the family of Mr.
H. Smedley. After the close of the religious
services of the forenoon, the family had taken seats
in their carriage to return home, when, before
Mr. Smedley himself who was driving got in,
it was necessary for some reason to back the team.
As the horses threw their weight on the neck yoke, the
pole broke and the sharp end struck one of them i
n the flank, exciting him beyond control. Mr. Smedley,
being on the ground, could not manage them to any
advantage, and breaking from him, they ran rapidly up
the road.
Before running far the end of the broken pole
struck the ground in such a manner as to lift the
carriage violently up dashing it upon the ground
with terrible force. A son of Mr. Smedley received
a violent concussion of the brain from which he has
since died. Mrs. Smedley was cut upon the head
and was badly bruised and strained. A daughter
had an arm broken, and a young lady, not a member
of the family, had a collar bone broken. All were
bruised and injured from the concussion.
This accident resulted from the fact that the
maker of the carriage used an unsound piece of
timber for the pole. An indictment for manslaughter
against the mechanic who made it would
probably give him a lesson and a warning
against building traps for the indiscriminate
slaughter of unsuspecting women and children.
(Compilers note: The following week's newspaper
carried a statement from the maker of the carriage.
He said he did not wish to add to the grief of the
Smedley family, but that Hiram Smedley himself had
chosen the piece of wood that broke. Mr. Smedley
had on a previous occasion had an accident breaking
the pole, which was replaced by a piece of his
own choosing.)

Tobacco, Maryland. After a long and useful

Then, according to C. C. Ware, a Stone

friends by an irresistible sentiment removed
finally his dust to Cane Ridge (Kentucky).
There by all the canons of taste and of the
fitness of things it will remain." For more

Yehle, Cathrina 63 Yr 1 Mo 10 Da 13 Mar 1867 w/o Conrad Yehle
(In 1978 this broken tombstone is in a
pile of discarded tombstones on the G. W.
Cole Lot.
The portion containing this woman's first
name could not be found by Robert W. Dalton.
The first name of this reading is taken from the
reading of Mrs. Sarah John English made
in 1927. It should be noted that Mrs. English
incorrectly transcribed the family name as Yuele.
A 1911 listing of Antioch Cemetery burials
lists this burial as Catherine Yehle but has a
three year error in the death date.)
