Home Cemetery, Floyd Twp,
Warren Co., IL
Silent Home Cemetery is really one of the
easiest Cemeteries in Warren County, IL, to find. I have been there many,
many times taking photos for others, and trying to find the burial places of
lost loved ones. One in particular that was hard to find but she was sure
they were buried there and they are were the surname of Johnson. They are
buried here at the Silent Home but there are no stones for them.
The way I go
sometimes to the cemetery, out of Galesburg, IL, go on main street straight west
out of Galesburg past Farm King and the old drive in movie theater. Keep
going till you see the sign that say Cameron. Turn left here. You
will be heading south. Go through Cameron under Railroad viaduct and over
railroad tracks. When you pass over the last railroad tracks you are in
Floyd Twp. Keep going straight on the Road 140 Street, you go a few miles
and at the intersection of 140/160th on the East side of the road is where the
cemetery is laid out. It pretty well kept mowed and such and there are
allot of new graves in this cemetery. Many of the older stones are in very
bad shape and some are missing completely.
This is only a
partial listing of the one buried in the Silent home. Will be adding more
later along with pictures of tombstones. But due to other's copying or adding to their files and then
using on web pages for their ownership instead of for a family file you will
have to email me to get the photos as it is a lot of hard work to do this and I
really don't enjoy somebody putting them on their web page and then calling them
their own. Thanks and sorry about
