Holeman Olive Cemetery

            I, your host, have been to this cemetery and will put the driving directions on here later.  It sits atop a hill and is very pretty site.  With a pond to south-east with geese flying all around.   Holeman Cemetery is easy to locate. take Il Hwy #166 out of Roseville heading towards St. Augustine in Knox County, IL, in fact it is not far from Knox county border.  You will pass the Greenbush turn off keep going to till you see road sign 165 Street sign.  turn south or right if heading from Roseville. Go to the first four corners.  You can keep going straight ahead.  This is a gravel road and will take you directly to the cemetery entrance. Or you can turn left and follow the blacktop/oiled road around to 40th avenue and turn right, this will also take you the cemetery. 

               Holeman/Olive Cemetery is located in the southwest corner of the northeast quarter of section 14 in Greenbush Twp.  This Cemetery at one time was also known as the Olive Cemetery the old Olive Christian Church was located about one and a half miles northeast of the cemetery, the cemetery was first called the Olive Cemetery and then later Holeman was added..  Land for the cemetery was deeded in 1896 by Isaac Holeman; additional land was deeded for cemetery purposes.  The cemetery is approximately 3 acres in size and is well maintained by Greenbush Twp.  In April 1983, the Holeman/Olive Cemetery inscriptions were identified as:
