Miles Cemetery
Kelly Twp, Warren Co., IL

Miles Cemetery is an old and abandoned Cemetery. It sits off the roadway with no known road leading to it. Though local knowledge says if you stand in the Hope Cemetery in Kelly Twp., Warren Co., IL, and look Northeast you will see a band of trees and the cemetery is located somewhere near there.

This was transcribed by Foxie Hagerty from her copy of the Miles Cemetery records recorded in 1981. It records the cemetery as being located near rural reference numbers 1750E and 2500N midway between sections 25 and 36 in Kelly Twp. There is no road to this abandoned cemetery; access is by walking through a field and some timber. The Cemetery is approximately one acre in size and has been overtaken by a stand of timber, weeds and brush. Most of the stones are apart from their bases; some leaning against trees, others have fallen to the ground, many are broken.

These listings are as of 1981.
