Davis Cemetery

SE 1/4 NW 1/4 Section 31, Twp. 14N, Range 9W
Morgan County, Illinois

   
   
Easily seen from the Woodson-Franklin blacktop road, Davis Cemetery lies south of that road and about one half mile east of the railroad crossing. The cemetery is named for Daniel B. Davis, whose home was located across the road from the cemetery entrance. Legal description of the cemetery site is in the southeast quarter of the northwest quarter of section 31 in Township 14N, Range 9W. The cemetery is midway between Woodson and Franklin and about a mile west of the Durbin Methodist Church. The tombstone readings listed here were originally made by Mr. and Mrs. Guy Martin of Waverly, year unknown; and by Bernard Kindred and Robert W. Dalton of Jacksonville, in 1969. The cemetery was re-read and the attached pictures taken on January 26, 2002.

Note: According to Myra, at one time there was quite a few wooden markers. Unfortunately the act of burning off the cemetery, after years of neglect, resulted in their destruction.
