I am looking for the Old Adams Cemetery in Atlas, Illinois. My Children's' great-grandmother was a descendent of Jeremiah Adams. I would like to visit this site in October. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.
As far as I know, the Adams cemetery is in Pike County. It's on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. This is a quote from an old Newspaper," Atlas, near the southern edge of Pike County is 42 miles south of Quincy, Illinois by concrete and gravel road. It is approximately 3 miles south of Rockport, it's post office." I don't have the date of this newspaper. It was here that Nancy Ross, the first white child in Pike County, was born".
Thanks for answering my E-mail.
