Search Marion County Infirmary Cemetery:

The County Cemetery was located behind the Marion County Infirmary (now the site of Maple Lawn Nursing Home) on the northwest side of Palmyra, along an east-west fencerow near the railroad tracks. Most burials, if not all, were unmarked or marked only with temporary markers that have been lost over the years, and some sources suggest the cemetery was treated somewhat like a mass burial site. Records of burials are sparse, and the total number of interments is unknown.
On death certificates and other records, this cemetery was called various names including County Cemetery, Marion County Cemetery, Palmyra Cemetery, City Cemetery, Hospital Cemetery, Infirmary Cemetery, and Potter's Field.
