Methodist Church Cemetery

Hermon, IL

These photos were taken on September 30, 2007, one very hot humid fall day of 90. Kate & finished up taking the last of the tombstones on this hot day. Will be posting them all here. but need to sort them out as there are many. Pretty big cemetery but now have taken every tombstone that is left in the cemetery as when you walk around this cemetery you can see places where they might of been others. Either not replaced or now just gone.
