BULL CEMETERY
aka
AUSTIF CEMETERY



   


This cemetery is also known as the Austiff Cemetery. it is located in Morgan County, Township 13, Range 9, Section 27. This cemetery was originally read during October 1982 by Mrs. Ruth Ann Stewart. It was re-read and the photos, which are included here, taken on October 5, 2004 by Earl Deatherage and me. Bull Cemetery may be reached by driving 5 1/2 miles southeast of Nortonville, in southern Morgan County. The cemetery is at the end of a rock lane and is about 1/4 mile north of State Aid Road 16. Depending on what crops are planted and the season of the year, this cemetery can sometimes be seen from the road. It is very well kept, still used for burials and is situated on a gentle knoll, mostly grassy, but boasting some cedar and oak trees. A small watercourse separates the cemetery from little known "Austif Park, which a marker indicates was donated by J. W. Austif.

NOTE: This cemetery should not be confused with Hartland Cemetery which lies about 1/2 mile south and slightly west of Bull Cemetery. Bull Cemetery is northeast of Hart's Prairie Missionary Baptist Church, while Hartland Cemetery is south of the church.

Photos of markers have been linked to listing names (the names appear in red) and obituaries are linked via the work "Obit" situated directly after the individual's name.
