RAWLINS
aka
LOVELACE CEMETERY






This cemetery is in Patterson Township, about one mile north of Patterson on the east side of the road between that settlement and Glasgow.
Location: Section 18, Township 12 North, Range 13 West, 3rd Principal Meredian.

Florence's notes: This cemetery reading was contributed by Perry Sherwin, Patterson, Illinois, just one month before his death. He noted at the end of the cemetery reading "There are several unmarked graves, plain stones, or stones without legible inscriptions; thus the effort to provide an accurate index is made very difficult."

Edna Secrest wrote the following to Florence: "This cemetery is named Rawlins Cemetery because of the following will: "First, I desire my body to be decently buried in a piece of ground now used as a burying ground on the NorthWest corner of Section Eighteen in Township Twelve North of Range Twelve West of the third principal meridian being the same tract on which I now reside in Greene county…..I hereby declare and publish this as my last will and testament. Given under my hand and seal the 12th day of June AD 1842. A. W. Cavasg John Rawlins (Very faintly under what looks like his seal is his mark)
