Himes Cemetery, Goshen Twp., Stark County, IL

Himes Cemetery is located on a gravel road north of LaFayette.

Actually, I was very surprised by the condition of this cemetery. It was my understanding this cemetery had been restored but by the cemetery photos and overview photos of the cemetery below you can see for yourself the sorry shape this cemetery is in.  Most of the stones are lying flat on the ground getting covered over by dirt and erosion. toppled over from their bases, among trees, broken into pieces. It's truly a shame here. It sits on a lovely road and not far from Knox Stark county line. If you need directions to the cemetery feel free to email me. Thanks!

Not all are named below but most are some are unreadable or broken so bad you can't read them will try to finish this one up later.
