SW 1/4 of SW 1/4 of Sec. 12, T17N, R11W
Cass County, Illinois


Thanks to Jeanie Lowe & Betty Albert for the pictures included here.

This is one of those cemeteries that only the hardy and avid researcher seeks out - particularly during the summer months. It is better visited during the winter when the insects, grass and weeds aren't so daunting. It is situated in a beautiful, peaceful location - perhaps someone will cut down the weeds and grass sometime in the future, bringing back the beauty and dignity this forgotten cemetery once enjoyed. It was impossible to locate many of the smaller stones in this cemetery as a result of the high weeds and grass.

Mr. Arthur Crumrin's "Old Cemeteries of Cass County, Illinois" (this book is available for purchase from the Cass County Historical Society - a bargain and wonderful resource for those researchers seeking old Cass County Burials) - was used to add some of the burials Jeanie & Betty didn't find in the tall grass and weeds.
