    Blue River Cemetery is located in Detroit Township, Pike County, Illinois.

    Burbridge Cemetery is located about 1 1/2 miles east of Martinsburg, Pike County, Illinois. The cemetery appears to be well cared for.

    Diamond Grove Cemetery is located in Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois.

    Fernwood Cemetery is located in Roodhouse, Greene County, Illinois.

    French (Milton) Cemetery is in Montezuma Township, Pike County, Illinois.

    Greenpond Cemetery is located between Milton and Pearl in Montezuma Township, Pike County, Illinois. It is a beautifully manicured cemetery, about 1/4 mile off the highway. When you pull up in front of the gate, music begins to play. All of the Johnstons are descendents of Thomas and Katherine (Main) Johnston. Kevin Johnston was a huge help in finding our link to some of these people.

    Griggsville Cemetery is located at the northwest corner of town in Griggsville, Pike County, Illinois.

    Hunter (Nebo) Cemetery is located east of Nebo in Spring Creek Township, Pike County, Illinois. It is a large and beautifully manicured cemetery.

    Parklawn Cemetery is located at the west end of Main street in Barry, Pike County, Illinois both on the north and south sides of the street.

    Petty Highland Cemetery is secluded behind a cornfield in Pike County, Illinois. It is very run down and cattle roam freely. Many of the stones are broken and some have either fallen or been pushed over. I fear that in a few years this cemetery will be inaccessible to the public.    On our visit there, our guys picked up the pieces of Andrew and Lutilia's markers, which for the most part were not broken. The bases were still in place but the middle and top parts were apart and laying at the base. With great effort they placed them back together. We now hope the markers won't be pushed over or broken. Lutilia's marker already has a chunk missing that we were unable to locate.    We were able to piece together the broken pieces of Rufus and Henry's stones. I am thankful we now have pictures of them.    It was hard to get good pictures because the cemetery is covered with trees. The lighting at the time of day we finally found the cemetery was not conducive in allowing good pictures.

    Scenic Hill Cemetery is located in Grafton, Jersey County, Illinois.

    Shearer Cemetery is located north and east of New Canton in Pleasant Vale Township, Pike County, Illinois.

    St. Mary (Calvary) Cemetery is located one and a half miles north of Pittsfield in Newburg Township, Pike County, Illinois.

    St. Stephens Episcopal Cemetery is adjacent to Pittsfield West Cemetery. The cemeteries are divided by a narrow road.

    Time Cemetery is located in Time, Pike County, Illinois. It lies very near the road and is very easy to find and walk through. There is no fence, and when we were there in September 2002, it appeared to have recently been mowed. We were there late in the day, so the sun was not in a perfect place for some of our pictures.  For that I am sorry. We learned that originally this cemetery had 250 graves. Some of the stones are broken, and others are buried. We found evidence that stones lie underneath the grass and dirt. We did not try to dig them out.

    Watson Cemetery is located south of Pittsfield, in Pike County, Illinois. This is a small cemetery and appears to be cared for very well.
