Morrison Cemetery

E 1/2 NE 1/4, Section 13, Township 16N, Range 12W
Morgan County, Illinois

The tombstone readings for this overgrown cemetery were made in 1966, 1967 and 1968 by Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Lovekamp, Mr. & Mrs. Lee Fox and Keith and Carroll Lovekamp. In 1966 they found only one stone still standing, that of Mary E. Williamson. Livestock have roamed in the cemetery. Several stones had been stacked in a fence row, while others were partially buried and had to be dug up in order to read the inscriptions. According to a Cass County History book, John Savage built the house which stands on the same farm where Morrison Cemetery is located. The neglected cemetery is about 2 1/4 miles northwest of Concord.
