Crow Meadow Presbyterian Church Cemetery

Contributed by Jane Foster

Located near LaRose, Bell Plain Twp, Marshall County, Illinois

Jane writes: "I found out that there must have been a real early church near the cemetery. They then built a frame country church . This church was torn down in 1961 and a new building was erected in town. The name came from a small settlement named Crow. Amazing what you don't know about your own area."
