This cemetery has been restored and is being kept in very good condition by a descendant of the people buried here. The Walter Cemetery is located west of Maquon off of Knox County Road #20. From Illinois RT 97 you turn at a curve going into Maquon right and that is Knox county road #20. You go out past the new addition to Maquon there is a road there 1400 go past it. The next lane is to a house that is set way back from the road. Turn here. You follow this road down to just past the cornfield and you will see a grass lane that is kept mowed you turn left here and follow the grass lane back and around and you will see the Walter Cemetery and all the hard work Todd does to keep it in shape. Thanks!!!

It looked and looks great for being an old cemetery. Walter Cemetery has many older tombstones in the Cemetery plus one that Todd nor have I seen in Knox County, IL. It is a Quaker tombstone and looks rather odd but unique. Will be placing photos of the tombstones on here or rather on to a linking page soon. Todd takes very good care of the cemetery and one thing my daughter noticed when we were there on Sunday taking photos and Todd was mowing was that he doesn't hit the tombstones with the mower. We have been in other cemeteries doing our thing and people have been mowing and such and we have heard and saw them hit the tombstones with the mower. And Kate couldn't believe that Todd didn't, but she was also glad as she has seen what hitting them with a mower does to them.
Walter Cemetery Photo Gallery coming soon, curtsey of Todd Walter, whose ancestor's are buried here and this cemetery was originally started by his ancestors. Todd takes good care of this cemetery that he restored in the 2001. When he began the restoration project of his family cemetery, it was covered with brush, trees, and only a few tombstones could be seen a top the overgrowth of the cemetery. The listings below were from the listings I copied at the Galesburg Library when the Knox County Genealogical Society read the tombstones. Todd later did his own research which was extensive by acquiring obituaries, death certificates, land deed for the said cemetery. All documents said and called this cemetery The Walter Cemetery.
Have a Great Day!!! & Happy Gene Hunting to you & yours may you find whom or whomever you are searching for.... May you ear echoes from the past......
Foxie's Note: I have put here some of the research plus, Todd's listings which is the correct one with names and dates to the best of his knowledge. Not all of his research is listed here. All of Todd's information is listed below: making some changes here on Walter Cemetery. whatever. You may find errors as Todd did or something that isn't quite right and sometimes things need to be further investigated to obtain the correct information.
And I want to thank Todd for his help and in his giving me permission to publish this information here.
Todd for your help and in the great job you've done here. I greatly admire you for all you've accomplished. Todd has also restored some other cemeteries in the area such as the McCallister Cemetery, Cook Cemetery, and a couple of others. I'm glad I finally got to meet him. Todd did all the restorations and setting of tombstones by himself. No help from anyone. Thanks bunches Todd and I know your ancestors will thank you, too. I will soon make a web page of the Walter Cemetery photos. Am planning on making it a little different than the ones I already have online. Thanks for your patience.
Todd Walter's RESEARCH OF BURIALS IN WALTER CEMETERY
This cemetery has been known variously as "Old Maquon", "Housh- Sumner-Walter", and "Briggs", three obituaries and one death certificate have been found that confirm it was named "Walter Cemetery" as late as 1914.
The first known burial was in 1839 with the last being in 1914. It is located one and a half miles west of Maquon on County Highway 20 and down a lane one-half mile South on the Southern edge of the North East Quarter of Section 5 in Maquon Township. The land was patented September 23, 1838 by Peter Jones and John W. Walter. It measures 125 feet by 100 feet on a point, overlooking a wooded ravine on three sides, where three small streams come together with a field being on the North side. No mention is made of it in any deeds. It is currently owned by Harlan and Jean England.
According to a history of Maquon Cemetery written about 1900, in 1839 James Van Winkle, a hired hand of Benoni Simkins Sr., died and Mr. Simkins approached John W. Walter about burying the man here. He was told that the cemetery was considered a family burial plot. He also approached Mr. Barbero, who owned what is now known as Ouderkirk Cemetery in Section 4 of Maquon Township, and was also refused. Mr. Simkins decided to start his own cemetery on his farm on Section 34 in Haw Creek Township. This was the beginning of the Maquon Cemetery.
I began working on this cemetery on October 31, 1998. At that time only four stones were visible among the trees, weeds and brush, most had fallen over and were buried in the ground. I used a metal rod to probe the ground to locate them. After removing countless trees and mountains of brush, I repaired and reset all of the stones and keep it regularly maintained after decades of neglect. Amazingly, it is probably this neglect, and the fact that it was virtually inaccessible, that I was able to restore it to the condition it is in today. There had been no vandalism and all but two of the graves have their footstones. There are only 3 headstones that I'm not sure are where they belong, but they are probably close.
Shrubs and flowers have been planted and I've purchased flag holder markers for the veterans. Being a work in progress, there is much more to do, not only on the cemetery itself, but also on the research that follows.
Some dates and names are from a Walter Family Bible, Will and Probate Records, Biographies, Deeds, and Census. Following the research is the actual transcription of the stones in this cemetery.
Todd Walter, December, 2001
*1 - The date for this infant is incorrect, the parents were not married until August, 1854.
*2 - Isaiah Stevenson's stone has his date of death as 1849, but it was actually in 1848. His doctor bill is from 1848 and his estate probate is dated January 9, 1849.
*3 - Betsy (Walter) Stevenson was first married to Edward T. Smithson, son of Samuel and Mary (Terrill) Smithson. He died October 21, 1836 and is buried in Bennington (Thurman) Cemetery in Maquon Township. Her uncle, Bowater Sumner, served as Surety on July 11, 1837, in Highland County, Ohio, when her father, John W. Walter was appointed Guardian of Edward and Betsy's sons: William M., age 3 and John W., age 18 months. In 1848, John W. Walter was again appointed guardian of the children in Knox County.
*4 - I have been unable to locate where or when Cary Sumner died or is buried.
*5 - Thomas R. Sumner died in 1935 and is buried in Cook Cemetery in Orange Township.
*6 - Martha J. (Sumner) McCoy died January 29, 1926 and is buried in Gilson Cemetery, Hawcreek Twp.
*7 - Abigail (Sumner) Stevenson was married to Isaiah Stevenson, after his first wife, Betsy (Walter) died.
*8 - Dorothy (Strange) Thurman's stone has dates that conflict with her obituary. Her stone indicates she was born Apr 6, 1797 and died Jan 25, 1887. Her obituary says she was born Apr 15, 1799 and died Jan 28, 1888. Clearly she died in 1888. Her son Alexander's biography is found below and supports that she was born in 1799.
*9 - Peter Brown's death certificate has his father's name as John Brown, but unfortunately it has his wife, Martha Thurman, listed as being his mother.
*10 - Cynthia M. (Montgomery) Beacham was married to John Beauchamp, although the name on the stones for her and their son is "Beacham". Census and other records also have the name as "Beauchamp". Her father's name was probably John.
*11 - William Brown is not known to be related to Peter Brown , although they were both from Highland Co., Ohio. I can't find that he was married or had any family here.
According to his probate record his possessions were "in the hands of John Walter" and "the sum of fourteen hundred and sixty three dollars and interest in the hands of John Eads", who had been appointed his administrator by his brother, Elgar, who was in Ohio. Bowater Sumner is listed as Executor on the probate packet. His family were Quaker, and his stone is the only one: I've seen in the area that has Quaker dating (8th month, 1st, 1839).
There are 46 marked graves, not including 4 duplicate stones. The 3 children of James H. and Rachel Sumner that are buried here have separate marble stones and are also on the family monument, and John G. Thurman has one for him and is also on one with his wife. There are at least fifteen depressions in the ground that are very visible and are probably graves, judging by their locations in the rows. A couple of the depressions are marked with simple rocks in the ground. I have been told by a former resident of the nearby farmhouse that there were a few tombstones in the creek in the late 1950's, but I have been unable to locate any.
There is one stone base with no monument on top of it in the section among the Thurman's. I believe that this stone was for Elizabeth (Waddle) Jan 30, 1830-Nov 2, 1869, the wife of Joseph P. Thurman, who was a son of John G. and Dorothy (Strange) Thurman. Their monument is in Maquon Cemetery with no base. The placement of the footstone (to the left) would seem to indicate it was the wife of someone. Next to this there is a depression that was possibly Joseph and Elizabeth's daughter, Samantha, who died September 11, 1865, and whose name is on the stone with her parents in Maquon. The monument could have been moved when Joseph died in 1892.
Another probable burial is Joshua Barrett Needles, parents unknown, who died October 18, 1845. He was married to Lettice Walter, a daughter of John W. and Hannah (Sumner) Walter. There is no stone found for him in any area cemetery. Lettice later married William Darnell and moved to Nebraska.
According to the obituary of Thomas Richardson Walter, son of John W. Walter and Hannah Sumner, from May, 1897, he was buried in "Walters Cemetery" but the family has a large monument in Maquon Cemetery. His wife, Sarah (Stevenson), died in 1904. His body was possibly moved at this time. The above Mary Ellen Walter, Thomas and Sarah's daughter, also has a stone with the family in Maquon.
There is a footstone with the initials N. M. H. found near the headstone of Granville Houser. Possibly a sibling.
James H. Sumner had a brother, Thomas W. who lived near him in Orange Township. He was married to Sarah G. Ashby and they had several children, four of whom died young:
Ashby Sep 27, 1852 - Nov 11, 1857
Wilshire Jan 27, 1855 - Nov 22, 1857
Infant Dau Aug 27, 1862 - Aug 27, 1862
Bowater Apr 8, 1864 - Oct 2, 1869
Their names are all listed on their parents stone in Gilson, Haw Creek Township, however, Gilson Cemetery was not used until 1878. It's very possible that the four children were buried here.
William Jackson Walter and Catherine Housh had three children that died, besides Thomas R. who has a stone here, and it is likely that they are also buried here though unmarked:
Wesley Born about 1841
Abraham Jun 10, 1851 - Jun 14, 1851
Eliza Vianna Jun 5, 1866 - Jun 30, 1866
John W. Walter was a Private in Captain Hugh Rogers Company of Highland Co., Ohio, from July 28, 1813 to August 26, 1813 during the War Of 1812.
Peter Brown enlisted as a Private in Co. G, 83rd Infantry of Knox County, IL, on August 11, 1862 and was discharged on December 22, 1862 due to disability during the Civil War.
Adam Housh served from Indiana in Captain James Bigger's Company of US Mounted Rangers during the War of 1812 from June 1, 1814 to May 31, 1815. For his service he was paid one dollar per day for a total of $365.
There is a James Walter listed in the Revolutionary War Militia Muster Roll of Captain Jonathon Isham's Company of Montgomery County, Virginia, dated April 28, 1778. I have not yet been able to prove this is the same buried here, and probably never will since the records were destroyed, but it appears there was only one Walter Family in Montgomery, now Carroll County at the time. James would have been 15 years old, which at that time was not too young.
OBITUARIES the following have been found: Left these as is what I am about is obituaries and such.
Died, Jan 28, 1888, Mrs. Doritha Thurman. Mrs. Thurman was born in Virginia, April 15, 1799, aged 88 years, 9 months and 13 days. Her parents to Ohio; there she married John G. Thurman and there resided until 1843, when they moved to Knox County, Illinois, and remained in Knox Co., until 1857 when they moved to Iowa living there 2 years, and then returned to their old home in Ill. after the death of her husband she made her home with her son Alexander Thurman, and after his death with Alexander's wife Eliza Thurman. She leaves to mourn for her loss, seven children, 4 boys and 3 girls. She was the mother of 12 children. She was interred at the cemetery one mile west of Maquon.

BIOGRAPHIES the following mention people buried here: Not all biographies are here. Just left Thomas R. Walter's in tribute to Todd who is a direct descendant. Other's Todd had you can find on the other site. Thanks!
Portrait and Biographical Album of Illinois and Knox County 1886, Chapman Brothers
THOMAS R. WALTER is a successful farmer and stock raiser, residing on his productive farm on section 16, Maquon Township. He has been closely identified with the agricultural development of the county since his arrival here in the fall of 1837. He emigrated to this county from Highland County, Ohio, with his parents, and resided on the home farm in Maquon Township, west of Maquon, remaining there until his final settlement on his farm on section 16.
The parents of Mr. Walter are John W. and Hannah (Sumner) Walter. The father was born in Virginia and was a soldier in the War of 1812. The mother was a native of South (sic, North) Carolina. Mr. Walter is the third in order of birth in a family of ten children, namely: Betsey (deceased), William J., our subject, Jincy, Lettice (deceased), James (deceased), Bowater, John G. (deceased), Cynthia (deceased), and Richeson C. William J. married Catherine Housh and they live in Nebraska; Betsey was the wife of Edward Smithson, deceased; subsequentially she married Isaiah Stevenson; Jincy became the wife of Milo Preston, deceased, and she lives in Iowa; James married Catherine Lawrence; Lettice became the wife of Joshua Needles, now deceased; she was a second time married to William Darnell; Cynthia became the wife of Joel Darnell; and Richeson C. became the husband of Polly Hall; the latter resides in Nebraska.
Mr. Walter's first purchase of land was 160 acres, on which he erected a set of comfortable and substantial buildings and made other convenient improvements, subsequently adding to his first purchase until he is now the proprietor of 1,481 acres of well improved and cultivated land in Knox County. He is also the owner of property in the village of Maquon.
Thomas Walter was born in Highland County, Ohio, Sept. 30, 1817. He had attained the age of 19 years upon his arrival in this county, and has always followed the honorable calling of an agriculturalist.
It is needless to say that he is one of the largest land-owners and most substantial farmers within the county of Knox.
The date of the marriage of our subject, in Maquon Township, was Aug. 8, 1854. The lady of his choice was Sarah J. Stevenson, daughter of Edward and Mary (Keys) Stevenson. The father was a native of Maryland and the mother of Delaware. In June, 1840, the date of the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. S. in Knox County, they settled in Haw Creek Township, subsequently removing to the township of Maquon, where they passed the remainder of their lives. Their family consisted of six children, and bear the names of Sarah J., William, John, James K., Lewis N., and Edward O. Sarah J., the wife of our subject was born inFranklin County, Ohio, Sept 24, 1835.
Mr. and Mrs. Walter, of whom we write, have become the parents of ten children, as follows: Vianna, Mary E.., Ethzelda, two who died in infancy, Lyman, Elnora, Thomas Ulysses, Laura B., and Albertie. Vianna is the wife of B.F. Adams and resides in Peoria; Ethzelda married Frank D. Pickrel; this lady died in Haw Creek Township June 2, 1881. Mary E. is deceased, and the remaining children reside at home.
Mr. Walter has held the position of Road Commissioner and also that of School Director. In politics he affiliates with the Republican party. The publishers take pleasure in presenting a view of Mr. Walter's fine homestead in connection with this sketch.

James Walter's bill for one visit from Dr. Caldwell of Farmington was $1.50. His coffin was built by Jacob Conser for $8.00.
Moses H. Gregg's doctor bill from Richeson Walter was $33.75 from September 3rd to November 17, 1846. His coffin was built by James McCully for $15.00.
Isaiah Stevenson's doctor bill from Richeson Walter was . In his probate there is a bill for
"...making one cauphfin for Isaiah Stevenson, Deceased. December 5, 1848, Seven Dollars, Wm. Conser".
There is also a bill of $3.00 from John W. Walter for "setting tombstones" in September, 1848. These must have been the stones for his wife and child.
John W. Walter's bill from Dr. J. R. Cunningham was $6.50, including a pint of whiskey. His coffin was purchased from F. C. Warden for $25.00, his stones were purchased from Geo. Carley and A. W. Anderson for $25.00, and his "articles for burial" were from George Stetson for $1.25. E. E. Blakesly also furnished medication (what appears to be "Frost's Pills") for $1.50.
Peter Brown's death certificate indicates he died of "Urenia" with complications from "Senile Debility" at 11:45 pm Apr 3, 1914 and was buried April 6, at 10:00 A.M. in "Maquon". Their stone has no date of death for him. His was the last burial.
Martha (Thurman) Brown's death certificate states she died of "Lagrippe" May 19, 1904 at 12:00 P.M. and was buried May 22 in "Walters Cemetery". These are the only two burials here with death certificates.

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. Kathy typed up the information I had from the Knox County Genealogical Society from records at the Galesburg Library.
Walter Cemetery, Maquon Twp., Knox County, IL
This cemetery is located one-half mile west and one-fourth miles south of Maquon, IL. on the north east quarter of Section 5 in Maquon Township, Knox County, Illinois. This cemetery is also known and was sometimes called the Housh or the Sumner Cemetery. But I have learned from Todd Walter who lives in the area and restored his family cemetery that it is really called the Walter Cemetery. So, I will call it the Walter Cemetery. Am leaving this here in respect for the Knox County Genealogical Society of which I am a member. But go by Todd's information which is listed above.
