Hazel Green Cemetery

NE 1/4 NW 1/4, Section 4, Township 15N, Range 10W
Morgan County, Illinois

This listing was taken from an original list compiled by Henry W. & John English on October 30, 1927. The cemetery was, at that time, an overgrown thicket, with trees and limbs which had fallen. Although situated only four miles north of the Illinois Braille and Sight Saving School, Hazel Green Cemetery is one of the more difficult cemeteries to reach in Morgan County. Known as the Savage Station neighborhood, only traces remain of a lane which apparently was the route to this cemetery. It is located near where the old Hazel Green School stood. In the school religious services were held for this neighborhood. It was deeded to the "Immediate Community" for a "Burial Ground," in 1850, by John Laurie and his wife Jemima Kirk, and John Sammons and Mary, his wife, and Robert Metcalf and Mary, his wife, and the Trustee of the School in township 15, range 10, were to be trustees and successors in office forever, for the use of the inhabitants of the vicinity. Originally, John Laurie and Mary Kirk as well as his son David Laurie were buried here - they were removed to Diamond Grove Cemetery in 1867.
