Pioneer Cemetery Tombstone Photo Gallery

made Foxie's way.........

     If you have any information or are related to anyone in resting in this cemetery feel free to give me a holler... Just click on my doggie to email me.  Also if you'd like to share any of your ancestor's information, obits, photos, you may do the same..  I'm always ready for new information on people from Warren County, IL.... Also, if you would happen to have any tombstone photos of the original tombstones I would appreciate a copy of them.  This cemetery is right in the Hart of Warren County, IL.

    Kate & I took these photos on one of the Hottest days in the summer of 2005 while waiting between basketball games for my niece at the Monmouth College. One reason why we didn't dig up any tombstones or anything. It was way too hot for that.

Thanks for stopping by... Have great day...

feed my doggie with emails.... he'll love you for it...

I don't know if it is possible for me to do what I have down below but am going to leave anyway and will check into this.  This is the heart of Warren County right here and Monmouth and as you can see from most of the photos there are but a few that are still standing. Would like to hear from you on this matter. If we don't stand up and take a stand now someday there is not going to be any of these old cemeteries left for anyone to go to. I love going to them, the piece, the quiet, the birds singing, my dogs love going with me and Kate and I sometimes take picnic lunches.  Cemeteries tell stories of who came before us. There is much history here & if something is NOT done soon there will soon be nothing left of this cemetery at all.


This Cemetery is very much in need of some help. If you would care to donate your time, donations to help with repairs, have family buried here, or anything you could do to help in the renavocation of this cemetery either click on my doggie to email me or write me at
