New Hope Cemetery
aka
Muddy Cemetery

SW1/4 NE1/4, Section 19, Township 13N, Range 8W
Morgan County, Illinois





   





   

This well maintained cemetery is adjacent to the New Hope Baptist Church, Centerville, IL, which was organized in 1856. Southwest of Waverly, Centerville is little more than a place name on the county map, consisting of the church building and cemetery. This cemetery was re-read on October 5, 2004 by Earl Deatherage and Shirley A. Aleguas. There is much open space in this cemetery despite the fact that there are no additional burial spots in the old section of the cemetery - that translates into many burials which either have never had markers or where the markers have disappeared. If a name appears in red, click on the name to bring up a photo of that individual's cemetery marker.
