Rohrer Cemetery


Location: E 1/2 NW 1/4, Section 35, Township 13 N, Range 8W

Reference to this cemetery is found on page 200 of Deed Record Book RR, located in the Morgan County Clerk's office. Dated Sept. 16, 1859, the entry shows that a previous deed had already set aside about three quarters of an acre for a church house and burying ground. The church was known as "Head of Apple Creek Church". Conlee aka Rohrer Cemetery is in the southeastern corner of Morgan County, approximately three miles south of Waverly and one-half mile north of Rohrer. Sporting an unused flagpole, the densely overgrown, but fenced, cemetery is east of Rte. 111. There is no access road or lane to the cemetery.

This listing is a compilation of several different readings, as well as additional burials taken from death records, obituaries and records of the Jacksonville Area G. & H. Society.

Thanks to Earl Deatherage for the tombstone pictures included with the listing. He waded through high weeds in 90+ temperatures to get these. Note: When we re-visited this cemetery in June 2002, the weeds were being controlled by sheep in the cemetery. It was much easier to find the remaining stones and take the rest of the pictures. There are lots of field stones in this cemetery with nothing to indicate who is buried in the graves they mark.
