Allen Family Cemetery, Coe Township, Rock Island Co, Illinois; contributed by Daniel Johnson. Thanks Daniel for your support. I thank you and people here & their ancestors thank you too. Maybe someone will do something about this cemetery and put it to rights again.
From Port Byron Hillsdale Road at about 1/2 mile west of Riverdale School, turn north at 9th Ave, North and 246 St. North. Go about 1/2 mile. Cemetery is on Tom Johnson farm owned by Mrs. Harry Albright. It can not be seen from the road. Just before coming to the farm buildings on the west, go across the fields to a weeded hillside about two blocks from road. All the stones were broken and down, several were in more then one piece and had to be put together to read them. This cemetery was read on August 5, 1975 by Lucille Sampon and Joyce Cornelius.
