West Hallock Cemetery

 

West Hallock Cemetery is located on Lake Shore Drive off Rt 40 N, in Peoria County, Illinois, Hollock Township. 
On the left side of the cemetery is a blue house and on the right side a farmer's field.

 

The cemetery is under perpetual care and appears to be inactive. 
This is a pile of headstones located at the back of the cemetery.
I was only able to read a couple of names: H.F. JAMES  and DUSTEN.

At the entrance of the cemetery there are two stone walls about 4 foot high connected by a green caste iron gate. The left wall has a plaque reading:

 This plaque is placed here in memory of Ella BROWN BURDICK. 
Who at her death,1960,  left a legacy of Ten Thousand Dollars now added to the trust fund for the perpetual care of this cemetery.

The right wall has a plaque reading: 
These gates are the gift of Ella BROWN BURDICK. In memory of her beloved relatives who rest here. 1939

There is also this plaque reading:  Cemetery Committee: Bert POTTER, James POTTER, Ruth VAN NUYS

Submitted by: Mitchell Hagge

You have a Daniel Potter  68 yrs. 3 mos. 1day  d.  May 23, 1828  For Heaven is Mine.  I believe the death date should be May 23, 1878. 

His oldest son was born in 1838. A second son was born in 1840 and is listed just prior to his listing - Albertus D. Potter.
A youngest son was born in 1856 and died in 1923. He is suppose to buried in this cemetery with is wife Mary Butts - she died in 1929.
Neither of them are listed so I'm assuming they didn't have a marker or it is in the "pile".
