Ebenezer Cemetery

Roodhouse Township - Greene County, Illinois


Also known as Martin's Prairie Cemetery, this cemetery is in the eastern part of Roodhouse Township. To reach this rural cemetery, drive east from Roodhouse on County Road 2 for about five miles. At a church building, turn north for about one and one-fourth miles. The cemetery containing an acre of more of ground, is on the east side of the good road. There are many burials here and the cemetery is used for current interments. The names listed below are only a part of the tombstones in this cemetery (Note: the bulk of this reading was completed in 1960 and is obviously not complete as there are no surnames after Spencer shown).
