RE: Matteson Cemetery
Found it.

Coordinates are 39.082496 -88.050343

Interesting that the cemetery is named Matteson and there is only a 14 year old child there. Her parents were Esquire J. and Nancy Matteson.

Not sure if her father was the son of Ira A Matteson and Content Burr buried in Greenup Cemetery just north in Cumberland County.

There could be others there but don't know at the Matteson Cemetery.

Matteson Cemetery

Thanks for the photo. I am not able to locate the actual site of the cemetery using Google maps. I am finding the Poor Farm and the Brockville cemeteries but am not able to find it. Can you provide some coordinates?
