Search Lone Grove Cemetery:

This cemetery is known as the "Lone Grove Cemetery" due to its location within Lone Grove Township, Fayette County, IL. It is also referred to as the "Williams Cemetery", so it is important not to confuse the cemetery with the other two Williams Cemeteries in Fayette County (one north of Vandalia & the other SW of Vandalia). Other aliases for this cemetery include "Cole Cemetery" and "White Cemetery". The Lone Grove Cemetery is located 2 miles south of St Peter, IL on St Peter Rd (LAT 38.8375, LON -88.846). There are at least 25 burials in this cemetery based upon readings by the Fayette County Genealogical & Historical Society, and VA records. I'm a 5th generation descendant of Robert Styles & Margaret Mary (RALSTON) HANNA that are buried in this cemetery. I visited the cemetery in JUL 2012 and it is in disrepair. About half of the remaining gravestones are now unreadable. The cemetery is fenced off from private cattle grazing land with an access gate. I was informed that cattle had gotten into the area many years ago when the gate was left open and broke off some of the gravestones. If you wish to visit this cemetery, please contact me since you need to get permission from the owner of the land you need to cross to reach the cemetery. – Donald Johnson (contributor #47321275)
