Prettyman Cemetery

The town of Circleville use to be located in what  is now a corn field in Tazewell County, Sand Prairie Township.
This cemetery is located South of where Circleville was.
As you so often see in these old cemeteries, there are numerous infants and children buried.
The cemetery is in pretty good shape. However, the old stones are getting difficult to read.
