|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In the family, this cemetery is referred to as the Wright-Talbott Cemetery. They were not just cousins - John Wright (1823-1869) owned the land and gave it to his daughter, Annie Wright Talbott (1855-1920). After her death, the farm stayed in the Talbott family for many years.
The cemetery is located on Route 3 near the intersection of Keller Highway near Ava, in Jackson Co, IL. The farmhouse, which stood between the road and the cemetery, is now gone, and only a dirt road leads back to the edge of the woods, where the burial grounds are located.
