FRANKLIN CITY CEMETERY

Morgan County, Illinois




   

   

   

This well kept cemetery is located in Franklin, Morgan County, Illinois. When traveling on Rte. 104 from the east, turn right (north) on the first street in Franklin - the cemetery is just a block north of Rte. 104. If traveling on Rte. 104 from the west, come around Franklin - through the wide double curves and past the Franklin-Woodson blacktop road - turn left (north) on the last street into Franklin.

Earl Deatherage, David Tannahill and I re-read this cemetery during June 2008. I've included pictures of all stones we were able to locate during our project (note: I need to go back to retake a number of photos and they will be added as soon as that is done).
