Smithson Cemetery

Scott County, Illinois

Township 14N, Range 13W, Section 12/14

Directions to Smithson: West on IL 106, turn right onto County Road 14 (Hoots Road) north to Priepot Lane (which is the third road on your left). Turn left heading west. Then take the first road on your left off Priepot lane which is a gravel road (Kilver Road). You can see the cemetery on your right just shortly after turning on that road. The cemetery is approximately 4 miles from Winchester.

This cemetery is surrounded by farm ground and is currently planted in corn. Once the corn is up, you will not be able to see the cemetery from the road. There is a little grass road between two fields that goes about half way to the cemetery, but it is still a bit of a trek back to the cemetery from there.

Thanks to Bobbie Jo McKee for the directions and the photographs included below.
