WHEELER-HUDDLESTON CEMETERY
Macoupin County, Illinois





This cemetery is found on Quarry Road, northwest of Gillespie, Macoupin County, Illinois. It is in Gillespie Township, Section 3, Township 8 N, Range 7 West. Ed included this note along with the above photos - "I would say that there are at least 100 tombstones. There is a wire fence that surrounds part of the cemetery. The McGovern family is found in the Northwest corner of the cemetery. There are many members of the Wheeler and Huddlestun families buried in the cemetery. Only one family site on the east side looks like it is being taken care of. A botanist from the state or a University might be interested in the plant life in the cemetery."

Thanks to C. Edwin Murray for the above photos of this cemetery and our thanks to Mary Ann Kaylor for providing a list for us to use in our search. Betty Moake & I visited this cemetery on 4 Apr 2004. We waded through weeds higher than we are and struggled through brambles and briars to find and photograph as many stones as possible. Undoubtedly there are others covered by the tall tall grass although we were able to find most of the stones included in this listing. Some of the stones didn't photograph well so the quality isn't quite what I would like however, considering the cemetery state and the fact that many of the stones are badly weathered, I was pleased overall with the stone photos.

If a name appears in red - click on the name to bring up a photo of that individual's tombstone.
