This report is a little different than the others on account of it was sent to me via email. I just copied what Janice said and put here if anyone has anymore information on this cemetery I would like to know about it. Please click on my hand below to email me. Thanks.
There is an old abandoned cemetery in Monroe County... out in the middle
of a corn field... in a small grove of trees... on Bushy Prairie Rd.
which is out of Burksville in Monroe County, IL.
Foxie's Note: First contact the township officials. If get nowhere, then then the only other recourse is to organzie a clean up the cemetery yourself. Contact people who have relatives buried there, the Boy Scouts in your local area; but they will need help and adult supervision. Let me know if anything gets done on this. Email is below. And if all else fails contact the members of the County Board, the Newspapers in the area, the TV people. Get the word out. We have to step up and do something or someday these will all be lost to us & future generations. Thanks Janice for the report.
