MILLER CEMETERY
Barr Township
Macoupin County, Illinois



   

   

   

To locate Miller Cemetery, you drive west from the stop sign out of Palmyra for approximately 3.9 miles to Miller Road. Turn left (south) on Miller Road and follow it to the end where it comes to a "T". Turn right at the "T" (I think this is Pine road) and follow it to a house which you'll find on the right. Just past the house you'll see a row of fir trees with a lane just on the other side of the trees. Turn right into the lane and follow the lane back around the field. You can see the cemetery across the field. This is one of the best maintained country cemeteries I've seen. It was neatly mowed and trimmed - all stones are upright (though several have been broken). The cemetery also contains one of the most unique home-made mausoleums I've ever seen (see photo above).
