Nergenah Cemetery

SE 1/4, Section 20, Township 16N, Range 12W
Morgan County, Illinois

Nergenah Cemetery is nearly five miles east of the Illinois River bridge at Meredosia. The brush, fenced cemetery is about 1/4 mile north of Spunky Ridge Road and abut 1/4 mile south of Coon Run waterway. From the road it is impossible to determine that a cemetery occupies the 50 feet by 50 feet area. No lane leads to the cemetery. It is known by neighborhood residents that a cemetery of unknown name exists in a pasture about 1/4 mile east of Nergenah Cemetery. Although no tombstones mark the spot a fence once surrounded the tiny area on the southwest edge of Section 21.
