Horrell Cemetery


NE1/4, Section 32, Twp. 15N, Range 11W

Six miles southwest of Jacksonville public square are the remaining tombstones of Horrell Cemetery. The cemetery site itself is situated on a gentle area of high ground that is now a cultivated field. The tombstones were removed several years ago and placed in a wooded area immediately to the west of the field, and on the east side of a small stream. Even with detailed directions it is difficult to find the flattened tombstones in the dense brush. The cemetery is within sight of the Winchester-Jacksonville highway, and is in nearly the exact center of the northeast quarter of section 32. It is on a direct line from Allinson Cemetery to Richardson Cemetery and is almost exactly the center point between these two cemeteries.
