Hunter Cemetery

This very old cemetery is located very close to the center of southeast 1/4 of section 4 in McLeansboro township.  There is no road leading to it and it's only feature is a wide spot in the east-west fencerow.  Recently loggers pulled the few remaining stones out of the ground, put them in a pile and broke many stones that were covered with leaves when they drove the skidder over them. A few names were recorded from the broken stones in April, 2001 by Gary Tidball who has contributed the information to Yesterdays.  Thanks, Gary!
This cemetery was located on film #988,626 at the Mesa LDS FHL from a work completed by Ralph Harrellson.  He describes it as being 1 1/2 mile north of McLeansboro.  (Thanks, Phyllis Collins).
