The land was donated by the Reeve family, with the first recorded burial in 1834. Therre are 16 headstones, some of them are very attractive. The cemetery, which is maintained by Terry Cummins, includes such surnames as Drum, Maberry, Norris, Reeve and Rimbey."

The Reeve portion of this reading was updated by Kellie Robinson during the summer of 2003. She adds this following information/description about the cemetery: "This cemetery is located at the top of a hill in a small clearing alongside the road and is well kept, although some of the stones are in danger of falling over or are broken. A small black and white wooden sign hangs in the midst of a bed of white irises near the hilltop to mark the cemetery.

One of the men buried here, Joel B. Reeve, was an early emigrant to Illinois, having come from Wilkes, North Carolina, with his father in 1819 (see Isaac Reeve Memorial Cemetery in Morgan County). Joel was the oldest of nine children, and father of eight children with his wife, Mary Arnett, daughter of Thomas Arnett, another early pioneer of the Morgan County area. the Maberry family, comprising over half of the burials in the cemetery, also were very early pioneers in this part of Illinois."
