No stone found. Death certificate said he was buried here.

Jesse C. Dimond was born in Virginia in 1807, to Jesse Dimond (1780s-1814) and Judith Hall Dimond (1780-?). By age 20, he lived in Louisa, Kentucky.

He migrated to Sangamon County, Illinois, (now Menard) in about 1835 and lived in Athens, not far from New Salem when Lincoln was there.

He moved his family to Mason County around 1850, living in the 1850 Census in Walker's Grove settlement, which later became part of Crane Creek Township. Jesse's wife Susan's 1853 grave was the first grave in Dimond Cemetery, which was on his land at the time.

A merchant by trade, in the 1860 Census Jesse was living in Mason City. He married Milly Hewitt in 1864, three days after her son Samuel died in the Civil War. The 1870 Census showed them in Kansas, but by the mid 1870s they were back in Mason County, Ill.

Jesse was buried in 1880 in Dimond Graveyard, his death certificate said. No tombstone was found.
