|Sage Cemetery is located 1/2 mile east of Oneida, IL, on the Post
Road; just over the Ontario Twp line into Walnut Grove Twp. With the
help from a descendant of Amy Sage I have relocated this cemetery in
it's rightful twp and spot in Knox County, IL. I've always felt it was
in the wrong Twp. and thanks To Keith and me calling the Supervisor's of
the Twps I've found it is not in Copley Twp as it is in the records at
the Knox County Genealogical Society. It is located also south of
the house that Horace Sage lived built and lived in while his stay in
Knox county before leaving us and going to Kansas. Also, Emily
Post lived in this house and why they call the street or road Post Road.

There is a small graveyard in Walnut Grove Township on the former farm of my
great great grandfather, Horace Sage. It is very close to Oneida on the
western edge of Walnut Grove Township. I'm not sure, but Horace's mother-in-law,

never determined where Guli MOSHER Sage's mother, Lydia PALMER Mosher (Mrs.
Nathan Mosher) was buried.
The only marker in the cemetery is that of Horace's mother, Amy Sage, wife of
My start for this Sunday, and what a day. Between Keith and myself with me calling supervisor's of townships and such found out the Sage Cemetery is not and never was in Copley Township. It is actually, just over the township line from Ontario to Walnut Grove Twp in section 31. We have also determined by comparing photos the house still standing at the end of Post Road, and where Emily Post once lived is where His ancestor before removing to Kansas lived. Horace Sage. Am now looking into two other people whom we believe to be buried here. Also, to find or see if anyone has any of the burial records. So, far no such luck on that.
More information to come in the next few days to be linked here and at the family page. Thanks so stop back by when you can.
