Pisgah Cemetery



Although no longer badly overgrown, this old cemetery still shows the effects of little maintenance. Pisgah Cemetery lies about a mile northeast of Pisgah, Morgan County, Illinois. Many of the stones are broken or down. Two sides of the cemetery, which can easily be seen from the road, are fenced. Pisgah Cemetery is in the southeast corner of Section 5 in Township 14 N Range 9 W. It lies approximately 1 to 2 miles directly west of Sulphur Springs Cemetery.


I've linked obituaries and pictures of stones when available. Just click on the link to bring them up (the name is linked to a picture of the stone - linked names are a different color - the word "Obit" added right after the name is the link for the obituary).

***** NOTE ***** If, as you go through the listing, you find pictures of markers which belong to ancestors and would like to have the original pictures, let me know. Send your mailing address, cemetery name and names on the stones for pictures you'd like to have to Shirley.*****
