Thanks to Kathy Mills, who lives right now in Texas, typed this up and emailed it to me via the net.   Thanks so Much Kathy!!! I really

appreciate all the time and trouble you've taken to help me out on my new venture on my Knox County, Illinois Web Site.

        We were to this cemetery last summer.  There is in the corner of a place where the Cherry Grove School or Church Stood. You can still see the remains of the foundation there.

    I have photos of all the tombstones in this cemetery and will be posting them here later.  If you know of anyone who is buried here or information that is not correct feel free to

   Have a Great Day.!!

Kathy emailed me this one today... I just got it done and will upload it.  Kathy is keeping me busy busy busy making these into web pages.  God Bless her.  I couldn't of gotten these online so fast without her.  Have a few more to make into that she has emailed to me in the last couple of days... Thanks a bunches and bunches and bunches... Kathy.  Going to make your name into cool text like the rest of ours here when I get a chance.  Have a good evening  everyone and Happy Happy Gene Hunting.

Cherry Grove Cemetery is located in Section 29, Cedar Township, 10 N, Range 1 E, Knox County, Illinois.  Cherry Grove Cemetery off of Route 41. There is a sign showing you just before entering Abingdon from Galesburg, IL, on Route 41 you make a right and just follow the road.  There also used to be a Cherry Grove Church there once upon a time.  It is long gone but you can see where it use to stand.

A log building was erected in 1832, just South and West of the present cemetery.  This was the site of the first school and church in Knox County. The Rio Baptist also says this as Rev Jacob Gum preached there in 1829.

The Latimers, buried here, were very active in establishing the Cherry Grove Seminary, founded by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.  The first Cemetery was on a half acre, but more land has been added.  There are indications of other burials, since many bases remain, however the stones have disappeared.

 Cherry Grove is a beautiful old cemetery and very well kept.

Ruth E. Herrick, June 1973

                        From “City of Abingdon History”, 1968 Edition

They still bury people here at this cemetery.

Foxie's view: There are many older tombstones in this cemetery that could use the tender loving care of somebody.... as you will see when I start putting the photos online.

As your first drive in. Photo taken a couple of years ago.
