Steve's survey, photos, & notes of this cemetery:

Tazewell County--Cincinnati Twp, plat Section #13.
Rankin Cemetery is mowed with many stones lying flat on the ground. Roughly7 half of the stones are white limestone and in very weathered conditions making reading of them almost unreadable.
Thirteen of them are unreadable.
No visible signs of attempt to restore broken stones or flag unmarked graves. At least 30 stones at angles to graves - in progress of sinking into the grave. An additional 12 - 15 stones are toppled with several more in process. See Photo #080.
While mowed, there has been no attempts to trim around stones. There is a a large pile of brush & field waste - natural - in back of the cemetery; approximately eighteen feet in diameter. Stones in high brush & in fence rows.

Overall Status: Partial Neglect --- Guarded!!!!
