Nations Cemetery, Adams County, IL
These are photos I took while visiting my friend in Clayton, IL, one hot summer day last year, 2005; I have some more, I just need to sort through to see where we were & such.  There was a very kind gentleman who lives in a house not far from the cemetery who came & took us all around to some others.
any comments, suggestions, help, insults, compliments feel free to email them to me or if you have person's buried in this cemetery would love to hear from you.  Maybe somebody you know is not listed and buried here... Can always use the help. Thanks

Below are tombstone photos taken by Foxie when visiting her friend in Clayton, Adams County, IL. You will see Pat, in one or two, my now 4yr old Great-nephew who loves to help his great-Aunt in the cemeteries and my daughter, Kate, who is also a big help to me.  You may click on the thumbnails for a bigger view.  We took photos of all the tombstones in the cemetery.  Sorry for not naming photos but time is short for me.... email me is you download a photo.  Just like to know where they go and give me credit.  Do not want to see them on another web page.  Thanks!

The Photo gallery is not working. I had a hard drive crash in 2007, and then got new computer and somehow have misplaced some photos. the thumbnails won't work on all photos. it was called to my attention. I'm sorry about this but the whole bottom page will have to be redone & I'll probably have to take the photos over again. until I can accomplish this you'll have to go by the names in the listings above. Sorry for your inconvenience. If you have any Nations family information feel free to email me. Plus, Janice is making a site on just Nations. you are more than welcome to visit her site and help her out too.

Janice's site is located at NATIONSSTUDY.COM
