Dunschen/Schaddel Cemetery

Menard County, Illinois
19N 8W, Section 34

The following inscriptions were copied originally copied by Mr. James Toal in 1981 - 1982. This cemetery is sometimes called the Schaddel Cemetery.

The cemetery was re-located, re-read and photos taken on January 27, 2002 by Stan & Jeanie Lowe & Duane & Betty Albert.

Directions: Follow Rte. 97 through Petersburg to Oakford. Go left off Rte. 97 at Oakford on 1st Street, which becomes a blacktop road. Follow the blacktop road for about 2.4 miles to East County Line Rd. Turn left on East County Line Rd. and drive for about 2 miles. The cemetery is situated about a half mile through the field to your left. It is not fenced. Our sincere thanks to Ron Jackson, Marty Claussen and Rich Brauer. Without them, we would never have found this cemetery. Thanks too, to the farmer who gave us permission to drive through his field. It was worth the time and trouble when we saw the beautiful old stones still standing proudly, marking the neglected resting place of these early settlers.
