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

Near the intersection of two country roads, this cemetery is southeast of Literberry, in the southeast quarter of the southwest quarter of the southeast quarter in Section 8 in Township 16 N Range 9 West. Oak Ridge Church was formerly located next to this cemetery. After the church was razed some burials were exhumed and the remains were interred in other cemeteries. Every remaining tombstone is toppled and some are broken. There is evidence of unmarked graves.

A news story in the JACKSONVILLE JOURNAL of Sept. 5, 1925 states that this cemetery was formerly known as STOCKTON CEMETERY. The story also lists the following burials as having been made in the cemetery:
Keefe Family
Morgan Family
Gard Family

* = No Stone Found
