Irish Grove Cemetery

Menard County, Illinois


   


This listing has been prepared from a combination of sources. An original reading by Mr. Norbert Lucht which was compiled, copied and then presented to the Petersburg Public Library by the Illinois Society Daughters of the American Revolution 1973-1974, Pierre Menard Chapter. This listing has been combined with the readings and photos taken by Jeanie Lowe and Betty Albert.

Directions: Located 1 1/2 miles southwest of Middletown, Illinois in Menard County. Follow Rte. 29 North to Greenview and turn right on the Middletown Black Top road. Go 6.8 miles and you will see Freedom Road. Turn right on to Freedom Road and go 1/2 mile to a "T" road. Turn left at the "T" road and go 0.3 miles to the cemetery which is located on the left side of the road. This is a beautiful cemetery and very well kept. It goes back quite a distance and at the very back of the cemetery is a very old section. The picture at the top right is a picture of this old section of the cemetery.

This is one of the oldest cemeteries in the county. It contains the graves of two Revolutionary Soldiers along with graves for many soldiers of later wars.

Betty & Jeanie have indicated a willingness to accept requests and take pictures of stones in this cemetery (as time permits) for those researchers who need same.

Pictures & directions provided by: Jeanie Lowe.     Additional tombstone pictures submitted by Garland Edgell.
