STEVENSON CEMETERY

DITSON CEMETERY
Macoupin County, Illinois





   




Stevenson Cemetery, also known as Ditson Cemetery, is located in North Otter Townshp, Macoupin County, Illinois. It is about 1/4 mile northwest of the intersection of Greenland & Finney roads on property owned by the Hannah family in Section 21. The property is listed as an exception in transfer of the deed and is listed as 1 acre. It is surrounded on two sides by a small lake or pond with of hog confinement buildings on another side. According to information published by the Macoupin County Genealogical Society, the WPA completed a survey of the cemetery in 1937 and counted approximately 125 graves.    Although the cemetery was cleaned up during 1980, it is again covered with downed trees and limbs and there is a huge pile of brush in the center of the cemetery, probably from limbs and trees broken during the storms of 2006 although some of the trees have been down so long they are almost completely rotted away. Earl & I read and photographed this cemetery on 16 March 2007. As the photographs above show, it is in terrible shape. We found a number of stones not previously recorded and didn't find a good number of stones which had been recorded previously - we both believe there could be many more stones in this cemetery which we were unable to locate. Most of the stones are down and many were buried, a few as much as 6 to 8 inches below the surface of the ground. We'll try again with a probe to see if we can find others - however, any stones under the huge brush pile will remain hidden.
