Tippett Cemetery

SE 1/4 SW 1/4, Section 35, Township 16N, Range 12W
Morgan County, Illinois

This cemetery, located one and one-fourth miles north of Bethel, is in a state of neglect. A fence protects it from livestock, but apparently the cemetery has received little or no maintenance for many years. Fallen trees and branches are scattered throughout the small cemetery, toppling and breaking some of the tombstones. In addition to the tombstones listed here, there are several weathered remnants that can no longer be read. The tombstones vary in style from several that are handmade to some that are professionally hewn from solid granite. Several large trees including a stately tall evergreen, serve to make this burial ground obvious among the surrounding fields. While standing at the edge of the brushy cemetery, it is possible to see both Bethel and Chapin.
