"Belknap cemetery is located on the old Belknap farm near the center of the south half of section 14. This farm is presently owned by Orie Clausen of Tennessee, Illinois. It is necessary to hike across a field to reach this cemetery. Many Belknaps are buried here and this cemetery might be called the Dill Cemetery, as the older Mrs. Belknap was a Dill.
"The oldest monuments standing have the inscription "Mary, wife of Joseph Fawver, Senior born in Virginia and died April 16, 1863.
"There was the burial as recently as 1948 that of Melinda Belknap, and in 1967, a Lewis Carroll was buried there. This small cemetery is fenced."
