Cemetery conditions, courtesy of
This endangered cemetery is not marked on the plat books. To drive to
it, drive Illinois Route 116 from Trivoli to Cramer Road & turn left on
Cramer Rd. Drive 1.75 miles crossing Nelson Rd. Cemetery is on the right
(still on Cramer Rd). Should you reach Wasson Road, you will have passed
it. Look for a fair sized cedar tree with numerous grave stones placed
against it. 3 military stones still rooted in front of the tree.
Originally, all the stones were on graves but after a Boy Scout
"clean-up" that, from all accounts was largely unsupervised, they
uprooted the stones & placed them in a pile. The cemetery is still
bounded by a fence on 3 sides & Cramer Road to the front.
Broken stones, moved stones, lying flat, trees growing around them, this
cemetery is in dire need of some tender loving care.
