Directions: Follow Rte. 97 North through Petersburg to North Petersburg Road, which is marked, and also you will notice the Menard County Fairgrounds sign. Turn right on to North Petersburg Road and follow it for 6.1 miles to where the road curves sharply to the left (do not curve to the left). Go straight off of it for 1 mile to where the road makes a sharp curve to the right. Stay on that road and follow the curve to the right for about 0.5 miles to a lane where the cemetery is located. The lane is not marked. It is on the right side of the road, just before a road which goes to the right. It has some gravel on it but you have to look for it. If you go across a little bridge after you have gone the half a mile after the curve, you have gone too far. This is a tricky cemetery to locate. It is on German Cemetery Road, but there isn't always a sign marking the road. Hopefully the pictures will help in your efforts to locate this cemetery.
