I got this listing above, from a person who said they got it from "a book", but could not recall the name. The book was probably:
Rural Cemeteries of Schuyler County, Illinois: Rushville Township, by Schuyler County Historical Museum, 1992. [R.S.M.]
(Available in the Denver Public (central) Library, Denver, CO.)
