Adams #1 Cemetery

Benton
Benton Township
Franklin County, Illinois


Adams Cemetery #1 is located in the NW1/4 of the SE1/4 of the SW1/4
of Section 19, T6S R3E, Benton Township, Franklin County, IL.

Beginning at the Benton, Illinois public square it is located
1.2 miles south on Route 37 to the County road marker
#1235E/810N then .2 miles on the north side of the road.

Mrs. Helen M. (Adams) Townley visited the cemetery on 25 July 2008, and
states that there are no longer any markers of any kind left there.
It seems the final markers have been cleared away for the planting of crops.

This cemetery has been abandoned for years.
There are many other graves, in fact they go south to the road,
north to the north fence line and also a distance east and west.


The names highlighted in RED are the only remaining monuments.
Those with a ** beside the name, were all found on 1 marker.
