Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is not to be confused with the Long Point Cemetery that is in Union Township in the eastern part of the county, just west of Casey.

Long Point is located about four miles southeast of Neoga, Illinois. The official name is Kingman-Cline as there is another Long Point Cemetery on the east side of the county near Casey, Illinois, and they are often confused. The cemetery is all that remains of the once prosperous community of Long Point. Long Point was one of five polling places listed when Cumberland County separated from Coles County in 1843. The town and old cemetery were located a little northwest of the present cemetery. H. C. Cline deeded land for the present cemetery in 1862 when his father-in-law died. In 1895, John Morrison, a Methodist minister who owned adjacent land, gave additional land to build the first church. Sometime in 1895, John Henry Kimery, William Cline, Joe Cline, and others moved the graves to the new cemetery. The John Gilpin grave (February 2, 1858, age 56 years) was the only grave not moved. His family refused to let his be moved. The cemetery has expanded over the years west of the original church and churchyard site and into the new part, the last church being torn down in 1966. There are 21 Civil War, one Mexican War and two Spanish War veterans buried here. There were six stones that had weathered so badly that in 1970 when the cemetery was read, they were unreadable. Today the cemetery is well kept. The lane runs from east to west almost in the center with the township road running along the north and west sides. A small grove of trees stands on the far northwest corner.
