Hinkle Cemetery

Timer Township, N.W. part of Sec. 21, 3rd Prin. Meridian, 1 mile West of Glasford, IL

This cemetery would be classed as despoiled; it's basically untended. 
Most of the stones are flat on the ground or broken. 
The damage to the tombstones and being toppled from their bases is due to cattle roaming freely through the cemetery.


At the embankment there is about a 40ft drop down to a running creek 
The most imminent danger will be erosion. There is only about 5ft remaining between Nebat and Margaret Hinkle's grave to the embankment.
