Versailes Cemetery, Versailes TWP., Brown County, Illinois is located on the West side of town.  We just followed a sign that said Cemetery & park out west of the town of Versailes. On the left hand side of the road you see a sign pointing the cemetery.  It is on a gravel road that leads right up to the cemetery which sits on a hill you can see from the road.

to read are all head stones for
the main white stone above.
