Watkins Cemetery #1

Sec. 16, Twp. 18N, Range 7W

Menard County, Illinois

This cemetery was originally transcribed by Mr. James Toal in 1981, then re-read and pictures taken during January 2002 by Stan & Jeanie Lowe & Duane & Betty Albert.

Directions: From Petersburg, drive out of town about 3 miles on the Newmansville Blacktop. Turn off on to the Atterberry Blacktop. Follow Atterberry Rd. for approximately a mile and a half. The cemetery is located about a quarter of a mile off the blacktop in a grove of trees on your left. It is in the middle of a field. The property owner was kind enough to give us permission to drive through his field.
