This is what the DAR wrote in the 1940's.
In 1995 I read this cemetery. The oldest burial I found was Levina A. wife of John Lyons died Nov. 24, 1853 aged 38y.10m.21d. This predates the DAR reading by several years. The condition of this cemetery at the time of their reading is unknown by this writer. Chances are it wasn't in very good shape, as many of the old burial grounds were not kept up at that time. The last burial to take place in this cemetery was Charles Swan 1866 - 1943.
A church now known (1995) as the Normal Church of Christ is in front of this cemetery. It is located in the N.E. 1/4 of the N.E. 1/4 of Section 10 Township 23 N. Range 6 E. in the town of Normal on State Road #13, south of State Road #22 in Green Township on county road 600 S., about 1/10th of a mile west of State Road # 13. This is another one of the many abandoned cemeteries that are scattered around the countryside.
