Methodist Church Cemetery

Hermon, IL

These photos were taken on September 9 &19, 2007, one very hot humid fall day of 90. I took these ones by myself with my, Bingo Buddy, who kept me company by laying in the shade while I walked around and got these. these will be in two pages from this 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.
