Nighswonger cemetery, Marshall County Illinois

Contributed by Steve Slaughter

Attached are photos I took on 7-29-09 of the Nighswonger cemetery, Section 34 of Whitefield Twp, Marshall County. Give it time to load - there's several. In case you get questions, to bring out the inscriptions, I carry & use sidewalk chalk which washes off easily & does not damage the stones.

Nighswonger is out Thenius Road in what can only be described as God's Country. Beautiful!!!
