This cemetery is in a grove of trees in the n. w. part of section 21 of  Timber township, Peoria County, Illinois.  Located about one mile west of  Glasford, Illinois.  No stones found in the cemetery in
2004.  Cows are allowed in the cemetery because there are no fences.  This cemetery was  copied by Virginia L. & Betty P. Schultz on May 20, 1972. Cemetery book  located at Parlin Ingersol Library Genealogy Department.  Courtesy Fulton  County Historical and Genealogical Society.


Directions courtesy of Steve Slaughter: From the City of Peoria, take US Route 24 thru Bartonville, past the cut-off to Pekin (Tazewell County), thru Mapleton & Kingston Mines. Approx 1.0 to 1.3 miles from Kingston Mines, turn right onto Glasford Road (County Route 33). Drive 1.6 miles into the town of Glasford. Drive out Main St. out of town (left). Road turns to gravel. From the time you leave the paved road & turn onto the gravel road, go about 1/4 mile. Look to your right. Cemetery rests IN THE TREES AT THE TOP OF THE HILL.
