Blood Cemetery, is located in the west half of the southeast quarter of Section 26 in Berwick Township on land originally owned by he Blood family. As the land has changed ownership throughout the years the care and maintenance of the cemetery has also varied. The cemetery is less than a quarter mile north of Illinois highway #116 with access by walking through the adjacent cornfield. The cemetery is about 20 x 30 feet in size and is surrounded by a four to five foot tall cement wall. There is a cement stile in the front part of the wall with the Blood inscribed in raised letters. Above this block is another cement block with a raised inscription thought to reads August 10, 1915, some of the inscription has worn away. This cemetery has many weeds and saplings.
