Godbey Cemetery

Menard County, Illinois
19N 6W, Section 20

Directions: From the junction in Petersburg of Rte. 97 & Rte. 123, turn east on to Rte. 123 and drive for approximately 1.5 miles to the Curtis Blacktop. Turn left on to the Curtis Blacktop and go 3.7 miles to the Country Hills Golf Course Road. The Curtis Blacktop makes a sharp curve to the right but you should go straight on to the Country Hills Golf Course Road (which may not have a road sign but there should be a sign for the golf course). Follow the Country Hills Golf Course road around a couple of curves until you come to a T road and turn right. You will then be driving along the side of the golf course. Continue until you see a two story brick home on the left at the first cross road. Turn left at that first crossroad, beside the two story brick home. The cemetery is a fraction of a mile behind the two story brick home on the right side of the road.

This cemetery was read in 1981 or 1892 by Mr. James Toal.

Jeanie & Betty are in the process of re-reading this cemetery and obtaining pictures of the stones. Our thanks to them and to their husbands for all of their dedication and work to make Menard County Cemetery Information available to researchers.
