Turner Cemetery
Morgan County, Illinois

NE 1/4, NE 1/4, Section 21, Township 13N, Range 8W

   

   

   

   

   

   

This cemetery is located southwest of Waverly, Illinois and straight west of Route 111. The front half of the cemetery is maintained and kept mowed. The back half, across a deep gully and creek, is difficult to walk through because of the briars, weeds and tall grass. Starting with a reading prepared by Myra Martin and Reuben Bates during the 1960s, Earl & I completed this new reading and took the photographs in March 2008. We were able to add several new names and make numerous corrections to the original reading. I've also added several new names from obituaries I've located.
