CROWDER CEMETERY


Gardner Township
Sangamon County Illinois


LOCATION: 1/4 mile north and 1/4 mile east from 3.5W and Rte. 125. West of Springfield. In the NE part of the SW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 24. Township 16 North, Range 6 West, Third P.M.

This inactive and despoiled cemetery was read during the 1970s by Dr. Floyd Barringer and again in 1993 by Jacob & Norma Wilkinson, Scott Shanley and Jason Rickard. More recently descendants of some of the early settlers buried here have formed the Crowder Cemetery Association and have been working to clean up and restore this cemetery. They began work on the cemetery in 2009 and generally gather at the cemetery to work every 4 to 6 weeks, weather permitting. Although there is still more work to be done, they have made amazing progress in their restoration efforts as evidenced by the two photographs shown here - one when they visited the first time and again as it looks today.
