Rubicon Cemetery


From the Gazette-Patriot, Carrollton, IL, Thursday, Aug. 8, 2002 - from an article dealing with Greene County Days.

A small well-kept cemetery on the east side of Rubicon Township, the property was cared for by the Rubicon Methodist Church until the small congregation disbanded. At that time, Greenfield Methodist Church took over care of the cemetery, which had its first recorded burial in 1851.
