Search Sangamon County Home Cemetery:

Located East of Buffalo off of Old Route 36. The remnants of an old brick building on the grounds of the former Sangamon County Poor Farm/Alms House can be seen from the road. This is not the road to turn, it is the next farmers lane going east, turn right, go 1/2 mile south to a jog in the road. It adjoins the Farm grounds on the East. The cemetery is fenced in and is in deplorable condition. It was impossible to determine if there were any stones or lot markers due to the grass/brush being thigh high. Members of the Sangamon County Genealogical Society reported in 1982 that the cemetery was mowed and that one stone was standing and numerous lot markers were seen.

This is a large fenced area, covering a few acres and could possibly hold well over 100 burials.
