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

Fred Hoagland of 351 West Myrtle, Virginia, Illinois, visited Hoagland Cemetery on May 19, 1980. All of the tombstone readings listed below were recorded by him at that time. He has furnished the descriptive information regarding the burial site. Hoagland Cemetery is about 2¼ miles east of Literberry and is in the northwest quarter of Section 7 of Township 16 N Range 9 W. Fred Hoagland's letter reads in part "The cemetery ... is located in a pasture just south of the home of Albert Gray which is the first house of the two on the dead end road. All of the stones were flat on the ground, most being covered up. I found a total of sixteen stones, a few had parts missing and some of them could not be completely read. I think I found all of the stones, as they were all covered there is always the chance I missed one or two.

Words in brackets [ ] or parenthesis ( )are not on stone.

Brisby, George 22 Yr 10 Dec 1852 (The Brisby family was living in Township
16 N Range 9 W at least as early as Oct. 10,
1840 when William Brisby and Eliza his
wife sold land in Section 31 of that township to
Jacob Strawn. William signed the deed
but apparently his wife was illiterate as she
"made her mark". On January 14, 1841 William
and Eliza sold to Milton Trotter 30 acres in the
east half of the northwest quarter of
Section 17 of Township 16 N Range 9 W.
Pages 559 and 560 of Deed Record SS in the
Morgan County Clerk's office show that
William and Eliza Brisby were residents
of Cass County, Illinois, on Sept. 5, 1857.)
Brisby, James H. 1 Yr 21 Da 18 Apr 1857 Son of J. & E. Brisby
(His parents probably were the James
and Elizabeth Brisby mentioned on pages 559
and 560 of Deed Record SS housed in the
Morgan County Clerk's office. From the deed it
appears that the senior James was a son
of William and Eliza Brisby.)
