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

This cemetery in Section 24 of Rubicon Township has been bulldozed over. It is believed that there were 20 - 25 stones in this cemetery at one time, two of them marking the graves of slaves that had been freed by the Williams family in Kentucky and who had traveled north to Illinois with family members. About 12 stones, some in good condition, some broken, were retrieved from a nearby ditch after the cemetery was bulldozed.
