McConnel - Fredlander Cemetery

McConnel Cemetery
Fredlander Cemetery

Morgan County, Illinois

Believed to have contained three graves, the tombstones and fence were removed from this cemetery a number of years ago. Dr. Alpha B. Applebee, the then owner, told the writers that in the days of horse drawn farm equipment it was easy to bypass this cemetery. With the introduction of tractors and other mechanized farm equipment, the cemetery was gradually overrun. The fence and stones were removed, but the bodies were not disinterred. The cemetery site was about 3/4 of a mile north of the intersection of West Walnut and Finley streets in Jacksonville.
