Old Huss Cemetery

 

Champaign County Genealogical Society Quarterly: As published in Volume 6, Issue 2

OLD HUSS CEMETERY is located along the west bank of the Salt Fork in Section 33 of St. Joseph Township. These are D.A.R. transcriptions which were recorded in 1965. In the fall of 2000 and the cemetery was being mowed and one could easily walk around it. In the spring of 2001 it appeared that some of the stones had been blown over by the strong winds that occurred during the early spring reported at 60 miles an hour in some sections of the county. Many of the stones that are listed here are not longer found.

James Russ, the great grandfather of J. Wesley Huss and J. Walter Russ came from Shelby Co., Kentucky, and settled on the land including the northeast quarter of the southwest quarter of Section 33. Soon thereafter burials were begun on this tract of land, making this cemetery one of the oldest in this part of the state. When the older Russ obtained patent to the adjoining southeast quarter on June 13, 1831, one of his commissioners included his son, Jefferson Huss, a member of the first board of commissioners when Champaign County was organized in 1833.

When the Huss Chapel Cemetery, a mile and one half westerly was established, the Russ family had many of the family graves moved to the new site. It is said that there are 400 to 500 burials here.

Addendum added August 22,2003 - The land on which the Old Huss Cemetery is located has been sold. The cemetery and land around it are private property. Anyone who wishes to visit the cemetery in search of family tombstones should first contact the new owners Todd Reed and Terry Thompson at 217-469-7423 to obtain permission.
