Old Concord Cemetery
aka
Goodpasture Cemetery

Menard County, Illinois


   

   



Directions: Follow Rte. 97 North through Petersburg to the Lincoln Trail Road, which is the third road past R&H Home Supply outside of Petersburg. Turn right (east) on the Lincoln Trail Road and go about a half a mile to a grassy lane between two fields. Follow the grassy lane back to the cemetery - about a quarter of a mile. The cemetery has a flag pole and is fenced and maintained very well. This cemetery has the marker showing the original burial place for Ann Rutledge. Her remains were later removed to Oakland Cemetery which is just outside of Petersburg. All of the stones in the cemetery appear to be very old.

This list has been compiled from inscriptions made by Eileen Gochanour in 1970; inscriptions made by William C. Grosboll in 1963; by George E. Rutledge in 1971 and furnished by James Toal. In addition, information was taken from the Concord Cemetery Plat Book (in possession of Eileen Gochanour) and from several other miscellaneous sources. The cemetery is being photographed and re-read by Jeanie Lowe and Betty Albert in April and May 2002.

Note regarding Ann Rutledge: unknown newspaper

Ann Rutledge, sweetheart of Abraham Lincoln, died Aug. 25, 1835, and was buried in the Goodpasture grave yard (sometimes called Old Concord cemetery), shown above, near Petersburg. Her brother, David, and other relatives were buried beside her. Here she lay until 1890 when an undertaker, ambitious to sell lots in his new cemetary, disinterred the dust that remained of her, and moved it to Oakland cemetery, near Petersburg. Later a granite stone was erected over this second grave, and now people make pilgrimages there, to what purports to be her grave. Abraham Lincoln often visited the original grave.
