Barnes Cemetery, Marshall County, Illinois

Contributed by Jane Foster

Jane writes: "This is a very small cemetery on Tax School Road north of Washburn. What an experience. I spoke with a local mortician to get directions, then had to speak with the farmer who owns ground there. Very overgrown with poison ivy, blackberry, trees, bushes, weeds, you name it. The farmer stated that someone had cleaned the cemetery up about 50 years ago and that nothing had been done since that time. I believe it. I almost did not go in.  I have attached a list of the info that I gleaned from the headstones plus info from the lady requesting the Clark info. I only found Clark and Barnes surnames plus a few spouse surnames. I have pics of most of the stones. One child stone won't take and there is one stone that is laying on its face (I can't pick it up)"  

If anyone wants pictures of the headstones, please let me know and I will contact Jane - NJP
