ABINGDON CEMETERY--UNKNOWN SECTION

               

Tombstone Inscriptions from Earlier Records--
location of these unknown burials.
To me this is heartbreakingly sad. When they have buried someone and nobody seems to know where they have buried them in the cemetery. This is how our history gets lost to us. Tombstones being destroyed even in the big cemeteries in our counties all over the state of Illinois.  Then you cannot find the burial place of a loved one, I've had to actually tell people that myself.  I don't like doing that one bit, it is depressing.
