Bean Cemetery

Bean Cemetery
Scott County, Illinois





The gentleman who owns the property where this cemetery is located gave me permission to visit it on September 24, 2005. It is unique in that it has a 4 to 4 and 1/2 foot cement wall around the entire cemetery with no doors, gates or steps on the wall to use for gaining access to the cemetery. I think the family may have built the wall prior to selling the property in an effort to ensure that the cemetery wouldn't be distroyed in future years. I'm not sure if that is the reason for the wall or when the wall was put up. The most recent burial I found in the cemetery, and there were a number of stones I didn't find because of the tall grass, weeds, briars and such, was made in 1902. I think the wall must have been built after that 1902 burial as I just can't see how anyone could have accessed the cemetery with a casket once the wall was erected. The cemetery is located on a hill behind a house on the property and above a pond situated at the bottom of the hill. I'm hoping the land owner will let me clean up the cemetery in the spring before the grass and weeds begin growing again. At that time I may be able to find the remainder of the stones which should be located within the cemetery walls. This cemetery is located about 3 miles NW of Winchester, in Section 12, Twp. 14N, Range 13W, Winchester Township.
