CHERRY CEMETERY
Macoupin County, Illinois





   


Cherry Cemetery is situated about 4 miles east of Palmyra and 1/2 mile north of the Girard-Palmyra Blacktop road in North Otter Township, Macoupin County. There is a small gravel lane which runs from the blacktop back to the cemetery. The cemetery can be seen from the blacktop in the early spring before crops are planted and in the fall after crops have been harvested. The cemetery is kept mowed and is in fairly good condition given the age of many of these stones.

One disappointment - there are several stones in a trash heap behind the shed which sits on the north side of the cemetery. Among them are the Edith P. Stamper stone and the broken top of the Unknown Richards stone. Early darkness precluded my investigating the stones which have been thrown there to see if any of them might be stones which I didn't find in the cemetery proper. There are at least two small spires on the pile. I feel certain there are additional burials in this cemetery as there are numerous broken bases located throughout the cemetery.
