Yearsley Cemetery - Champaign County Illinois

Cemetery Name: Yearsley Cemetery

Location:  Somer Township, North-East of Urbana

Description:  Yearsley Cemetery was started around 1895, and is still active and well maintained. In the South-East corner of Yearsley cemetery, you will find the Brownfield Cemetery adjacent to Yearsley. It is a private graveyard for the Brownfield family, but there is no fence or nothing that marks the seporation between the 2 cemeteries (with the whole area sometimes confused as Yearsley cemetery). Old Heater Cemetery is also close by, across the road in a group of trees. One of the video's below tries to point out the 3 cemeteries.

Pictures: I took pictures of EVERY stone in this cemetery in April 2010, and also took 2 video's at the same time.

Please note: These video's are NOT "professional" or to be used to read stones or anything like that.... these are simple to show a quick "overview" of the cemetery. For those who may never be able to visit this cemetery in person, these video's are here to show a quick "overview" of the area.
