Harshbarger Cemetery of Knox County, IL

         My daughter, Kate, and I just visited this cemetery.   We were there around the first of May of this year.  Had to get permission from the land owner and then he gave me my first ride on a four wheeler back into the cemetery.  Also, found there is a tombstone in their yard by a tree.  Took a photo of that also.  Want to go back and have permission to do so and will try and get better photos.  Right now the cemetery is overgrown with weeds, tree saplings, and such.  My daughter couldn't go back with us as the four wheeler only holds two and didn't want her sitting in the car by herself.  She wouldn't go into the house with the other folks.


right at the moment can't locate my listings for people buried here will post a little later...


Always a work in progress....
