Etter Cemetery is located about 2 miles south of Palmyra, Illinois and about 1/4 mile east of Route 111. It sits on a hill and during the winter and early spring is easily seen from the highway. The cemetery was listed as an exception for the "cemetery ground" with its legal description in a land sale of the Etter heirs in 1908. The original donor of the land was Henry Etter. There were a number of burials in the early 1900's, and I found one 1991 death date on a stone in this cemetery. It is unclear whether the woman who died in 1991 is actually buried here. The cemetery is not an active cemetery today.

The cemetery is laid out with what appears to be a drive down through the middle of the cemetery and the stones situated along both sides of the driveway or wide walkway. It is a lovely location atop the hill, overlooking a pond at the foot of the hill on the west side. It is situated on land belonging to the Stults family and they maintain a gravel roadway up to the cemetery. Although it needs to be mowed, it is obvious that it has been cleared as there are no briars and brush growing up in the cemetery today.

There are many foot stones in this cemetery which don't seem to have a headstone to go with them - a few have initials but most are unmarked - indicating that there are other burials in this cemetery which aren't included on the list below.
