HORNBACK CEMETERY
Menard County, Illinois
18N 6W, Section 15


   
Hornback Cemetery                    Field road off Rte. 123

Directions: From the junction of Rte. 97 & Rte. 123 in Petersburg, turn East on to Rte. 123 and go for a total of 4.2 miles. You will go over the Sangamon River and will pass Nolting Road. When you see Nolting Road, you will continue on Rte. 123 for another 0.8 miles to a field road that is bordered on the East by telephone poles. This road is on the straightaway on Rte. 123 - totally flat ground. Turn South on the field road, which is dirt and follow it back 0.8 miles. You will see a road go off to the right and a house to the right. Don't turn, but continue on the field road which turns into grass instead of dirt at that point. The road to the right is actually Nolting Road which has curved around to meet this field road. You can also get there by going all the way to the end of Nolting Road and turning right on to the grassy pathway. If you come off Rte. 29 and turn West on Rte. 123 you will go 2.6 miles to the field road on the south side of the road. From this direction, the field road is past Lebanon road 0.3 miles. Whichever way you get to the grassy pathway, follow it around the little curve and you will see a very pretty little cemetery. The cemetery is fenced, has a big orange gate and also has a flag pole. It is very well maintained.

Note: Special thanks to Sherry Smith (researching her Hornback, Meeker and Ohmart lines in Menard County) for sharing her pictures and the directions. Without her help, we might never have found this cemetery. The pictures enabled Betty Albert and me to find the cemetery - proof that a picture is worth a thousand words.

This listing was compiled from the following: James E. Toal Inscriptions; Eileen Gochanour Inscriptions; Menard County Histories and from information Eileen gleaned from funeral home records and obituaries. Our appreciation to Eileen Gochanour and to Mr. James Toal for giving us permission to put this information online.

As these transcriptions were done by humans, they are subject to errors. One should research the original documents/read the headstones, to verify the correctness.
