Search Hemenway Cemetery:

Hemenway is a rural cemetery located on Telegraph Road, Burritt Township Section 15, in Winnebago County IL. It is considered a despoiled and abandon cemetery. In 2016, efforts are underway to clear and restore as much as possible. Gravestones have crumbled and are basically ineligible. From the book "Pioneer Families of Burritt, authored by Faye Sarver Hilton, copyright 1981, published by Graphco, Inc., Minneapolis MN, the listing of two internments have been made thus far, both children of Loomis and Henrietta (Huntington) Benjamin, who lived in Burritt Township from 1850 to the mid 1860s. Although there is a third listing, for Lox Benjamin (evidently Loomis' nickname), he was not buried here. In researching the Loomis family, the dates of death do not appear accurate in this book. The poor quality of the gravestones no doubt contributed to this error.
