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

This treeless cemetery is apparently well maintained. A fine storm fence and gate enclose the burial ground. The cemetery is atop a hill and adjacent to Spunky Ridge Road. Spunky Ridge Road connects with Illinois Route 104 just west of Hodges (Muntman) Cemetery at Meredosia Hill and continues eastward to the village of Concord. Hemminghaus Cemetery is about three miles east of Hodges Cemetery. A steep and brushy embankment allows this cemetery to be about six or seven feet above the roadbed. Legal description of the site of Hemminghaus Cemetery is in the northeast quarter of the northeast quarter of Section 28 in Township 16 N and Range 12 W.
