Welcome to Illinois Genealogy Trails

Parker Cemetery
Hutton Township, Coles County, Illinois

Pictures from my own visit to this cemetery, which is literally in the middle of a corn field
(Visit before the corn starts to grow or you'll never see it from the road).

Not in the best of shape - very overgrown with painful bramble, though the stones themselves are in pretty good condition

Grave on left is that of Sarah Ann Thompson (d. 1871 - daughter of Alonzo Thompson & Rebecca Perry).
The headstone on the right is unreadable, but perhaps it is Sarah's sister, Nancy Bell Thompson d. 1876?
