     This old abandoned Cemetery is located in the Center of the South East Quarter of Section 4 of Knox Township.  Take East Fremont Street Road, Galesburg; County Highway 7 out of Galesburg.  You will come to a stop sign and the on left side of the road is the Livestock Barn.  Go straight through stop sign keep going till you hit another stop sign, turn left, you will see a farm house on your left hand side of the road.  Just as you are going down the hill look to your left and you can see when the grass is not too high a few tombstones sticking out of the ground. This is the Union Cemetery sometimes called the Shragell; It used to be called Shragell Corner's because Shragell's owned all the property around here.   Robert Shragell is now living on farm.

If you have any information you'd like to add to any of these Knox

County web pages of mine feel free to

email me....

Any information, comments, suggestions are greatly appreciated as we aim to please. Thanks!

     Especially if they pertain to anyone in this cemetery or if you know of anyone else who might be buried here.  I need to go and check this one out.  I've been by it a million times on my way to Galesburg since I've lived out here in Copley Twp. Want to put it on my Illinois Saving Graves as a Cemetery to Restore.

History of some of the persons buried here.

*Scott, Gaddial, was one of eleven children, whose father, Andrew Scott, was born November 21, 1786, in North Carolina, married May 28, 1808 to Anna Longest, who was born in 1791. He was born August 09, 1809 in Jackson Co, Tenn.,; was married July 25, 1833, at Island Grove, Sangamon Co., Ill., to Susan Sexton, who was born May 25, 1810, in Knox Co., Kentucky; was married again to Sarah M. Hobbs November 09, 1876. He moved to Knox co., Ill., settling 4 miles north of Knoxville October 06, 1834; they had six children:

William M., born July 21, 1834; died July 18, 1863
John W. born March 26, 1834, died October 06, 1862
Elizabeth S., born April 27, 1839, died February 22, 1864
Enoch S., born July 25, 1841, near Galesburg
James M. born May 05, 1843, in Knox Co
Jacob A. born October 14, 1846, died May 03, 1865
Nancy L. O. born April 21, 1852, died August 24, 1867
Mrs Susan Scott died January 22, 1875

Mr. Scott was in Knox co., at an earlier day than any man of whom we have any account. He was in every sense a pioneer, for of all the stron hands and willing hearts who went forth to conquer the wilds of the great West, none did more to advance the agricultural and educational interest of Knox co., than id Gaddial Scott. He turned the first soil ever plowed by white man in Galesburg township. He is a member of the Christian Church. P. O. Galesburg.
