TAYLOR CEMETERY

T16N-R4W, SE1/4 NW1/4 Section 2
Clear Lake Township
Sangamon County, Illinois


    

Taylor cemetery is located approximately 1 mile East of Spaulding on north side of Telstar Road, Southeast 1/4 of the Northwest 1/4 of Section 2 (northeast of Riverton).

These readings were obtained from Paul Taylor and John & Cathy Taylor Berner whose ancestors are buried here and used with their permission. Thanks for sharing! Previous readings were combined and compared, including readings from Dr. Floyd S. Barringer, Decatur Gen. Society, local D.A.R. chapter as well as readings by Caroline Meissner and Mary Gladys Schewe. John R. Bice composed a history of the cemetery to commemorate its 150 years of existence in 1983, the earliest dated stone found as 1833. According to this history no one could be buried in the northwest corner of the cemetery, as it was used as a common grave for many people who died of a cholera epidemic.

On July 6, 1863 James S. Taylor and Sally Taylor deeded a tract of land "for the purpose of a burying ground, containing one-half acre". They conveyed it out "except the right in common to bury within said premises the dead of our own family, and the family of relatives, which are the benefits as above alluded to as accuring to the said party of the first part". The signatures were witnessed by John Wilson and Sally Taylor signed with her mark, an "X". The deed was recorded 16 Feb 1888, Book 80, page 397 (Sangamon County Courthouse, Springfield, Illinois). This was approximately 25 years after it was signed.

Again on 29 January 1891 Sarah Taylor, Maggie Jones, William A. Jones and Bertrand H. Jones deeded by Quit Claim an addition to the one-half acre by adding some on the south and some on the east, making Taylor a total plat of 196.58' x 286.65'.

Photos of tombstones have been completed as of June 5, 2003. There are four that I could not identify and are listed as "UNREADABLE" and could be some of the stones on the list that do not have a photo. Or those without a photo could mean the stone was missed or was not found. More recent burials and photos have been added to this listing. Click on the underlined link to access those with a photo.

Errors could have been made, so please send corrections if they can be verified - Mary Ann Kaylor
