Lynnville Cemetery

     

The remains of two toppled brick pillars mark the entrance to an overgrown narrow lane that extends between the nearest road and Lynnville Cemetery. The one acre burial ground is about 1/4 mile northeast of Lynnville, between a good road and a small stream known as Walnut Creek. The cemetery is in the northwest quarter of Section 5 in Township 14 N, Range 11W. In 1920 the cemetery was so neglected that adjoining property owners threatened condemnation proceedings. descendants of persons interred in the cemetery soon afterwards formed a board to care for the cemetery. However, it was not until some years later when Fred R. Watson became involed that an endowment fund was obtained for the upkeep of Lynnville Cemetery. The narrow land across private property was purchased to allow unhindered entry. Title to the lane and cemetery were eventually transferred to the Lynnville Village Board. In 1978 the cemetery appears to receive little or no maintenance.

Update: When I visited this cemetery on 27 May 2001, the cemetery had been recently mowed and from the looks of it, I would say that it is mowed on a fairly regular basis during the summer. Many many of the stones have toppled, but the brush and trees have been cleared from the cemetery so that it is easy to walk through and locate the stones. The lane, which runs between two cultivated fields had also been mowed, although I saw no evidence of the aforementioned toppled brick pillars. The cemetery can be easily seen from the main road.
