Vermilion County Illinois

Febrary 2012 - PLEASE NOTE - I have not updated this page yet. I've been trying to add more pictures to different cemeteries, but haven't had a chance to fully update THIS page - please check out the QUICK LIST which I have been updating.

I'm slowly getting all the information along with TONS more over on my redesigned site - but in case something is missing, here are some old links that should still work: [old map page] [old cemetery list] [old picture page]

Vermilion County has around 125 cemeteries. I have visited almost all of them. Each cemetery now has their own page dedicated just to that cemetery. Hopefully this will allow more detailed information about each cemetery.

Hello, I am looking for information or location of the burial site for my grat Grandfather Holcomb Mills. The records indicate he was buried in Indianola, Vermilion, Ill. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Everett Mills

Subject: Holcolm Mills

Hello, Pape Mortuary in Danville has a website where they have a good database of people that they have recorded from cemetery lists, newspaper obituaries, family resources, etc.... and they do have a Holcolm Mills July 14, 1852 - Aug 16, 1931 listed:

They have him listed as being in Michael Cemetery, which is in the Indianola area. I took a quick look at the cemetery readings from that cemetery, and there is not a Holcolm listed - so I'm guessing if he is buried there, he doesn't have a stone. (And of course you can look through the pictures I took from that cemetery if you want to look yourself.)

I have found errors on the Pape Database, so if possible if I was you, I would try to confirm the information - possible look for a newspaper obituary - you can check with the local genealogy place which may have an obit:

Or you can check with the local library which has microfilm of local newspapers where they can look things up.

Good Luck.

Subject: Need and date

I am looking for my cousins death date so I could get a copy of her obitary. Her name was Martha Pearl (Lawhun) Chase of Danville, Illinois. The clostest I can come is that she died sometime after July 29--2010 to Dec 31--2011. Her husband's name was Burton Chase also deceased.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Donna Rounds

Subject: Maybe a mystery cemertaty

You are doing a excellent job for all interested in finding their ancestors. I was born in my grandfathers house in Tilton back in 1931 so as I read the names on the various head stones,in Oakhill, Songer, Greenwood, Pleasant Hill, I remember many of those families and individules personally and very well. I am a Korean Vet and of course I look at the military head stones with interest. So many of my friends are now gone. There was one in Oakhill cemetary which really caused a double take because I still have photo's in my family photo's of the two of us playing marbles on the front sidewalk of the old two room school in Hillery. Such memories.

However the last time I was back home in 2007, I was looking for some of my ancestors when I ran into a small cemetary at the side of the road.It is evidently a family plot, and rather beat up, but some one had been taking some care of it. Perhaps you are aware of this but perhaps not. The location is east of Songer cemetary, on the Songer Cemetary road. As one follows the gravel road east, it will eventually turn south. the location of this plot is on the left hand side of the road going south. If memory serves me there is a tree growing in the site, but I don't recall if any graves are disturbed yet. Anyhow if you are aware of this plot, okay, if not perhaps you would want to check it out. Keep up the good work. Loral
