Jefferson County Illinois 

Many volunteers have worked very hard to provide the researchers 
of Jefferson County a listing of Cemeteries and to provide pictures
of headstones to help you in your personal research.

So please do not take the cemetery listings and pictures 
that others have worked so hard to provide and add it 
to any other website as your own. 

Thank You 
for understanding and respecting 
the work of others.

Buffington/French Cemetery
Farrington, Twp.
From Mt. Vernon go out old state Rt. 15 to the Harmony/Marlow Road turn left
to go to Harmony turn right on Silence Rd. (1925) it is the road right
before you get to the Harmony Church. Stay on this road until it comes to a
curve to the right you can also turn left but there is no stop sign and I
wouldn't call it a T. When you go thru the curve the road name changes to
Duner Lane (2150) stay on this road it will curve to the left and the name
changes to E.Pinecone Rd. (1900N) then you will turn right on N. Duke Lane
(2150) this road will curve to the left and then it will curve to the right.
As soon as you go thru the right curve the old house sits on the left it has
a grown up drive way it will be the first place you come to but it is hard
to see because of the weeds. When you get out behind the house there is an
old barn to the right and an old Chicken Coop? back off to the left you will
have to walk a bit before you see the chicken coop. The cemetery is behind
