"I noticed that you do not have a listing of the graves for the Eagleston Cemetery. My family owns the ground and relatives of the Eaglestons used to come every year to see the cemetery. The old fella (Robert Eagleston) and his wife have passed on but they did send me a list of persons buried there many years ago. The Eagleston Cemetery is located in Stark County, Penn Township, Wyoming, IL. Up until the wind turbines came to this area it was very hard to get back to the site. The list the gentleman sent contains a list of all the people buried there and other information." -Randy Irwin
