CRUM CEMETERY
Macoupin County, Illinois





   


This small 1/2 acre cemetery is less than 1 mile west of the town of Palmyra, Macoupin Co., IL and lies on the south side of the Palmyra Road just up the hill after you cross the bridge. In 1886 Joseph Crum created the deed for this cemetery and in 1909 Isaac Crum deeded the land for a roadway leading to the cemetery. At present, it is in fairly good condition, although the fence which once surrounded this cemetery has fallen on the front side. When we visited this cemetery on 17 Mar 2006, it was easy to find the few stones which remain in the cemetery - all but one are still standing.
