Brush's Prairie Cemetery, Perry Co., IL

Contributions, information to contribute click on my doggie. Thanks.

Thanks for your time.

I have no idea where this cemetery is located at or any other information on it.

Brush Prairie Cemetery tombstone photos are all contributed to Foxie @ Illinois Saving Graves by Susan Ing, of St. Louis, MO. Thanks so Much Susan. & I know other people out there will thank you for all your hard work.

From the look of these tombstone photos this cemetery and the memorials left behind by the people who buried their loved ones here could use some help with descendants now to replace some stones to make them readable. I'm very upset over the condition of the Veterans stones in this cemetery. What a way to treat our Fallen Soldiers who stood out to take a stand so we might have the freedom we all so enjoy today. If anyone has any information on any of them or could tell me who they are the ones I can't read and even the ones I can I would greatly appreciate it plus, will post it here for others. Thanks for your thoughts. Foxie, blue over Brush Prairie Cemetery conditions in the older sections.

Have a few more to put names under if I can read the stones but uploading what I have done right now. All photos taken by Susan Ing, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  & so should everyone else thank you.

Always a works in progress
