Adams Family Plot - Vermilion County Illinois

Cemetery Name: Adams Family Plot

Location:  McKendree Township, East of Westville

Approximate GPS Location 40.03498 -87.54902 (link to Google Map)

Description: I have not found this cemetery yet (if it still exists). Instructions to the cemetery that I found from 1980 is: "South of Union Corner - to cross roads, keep south on dead end road - behind first house on right side of road. Plot is in the center of an evergreen field owned by Zane Cole in 1980".

At that time, it was also "read" with the following found:

Adams, Barbara - d/o John & S. Adams - 1y.2m.14d - d. 8.2.1851

Using maps, 1940 aerial photos - I've came up with an approximate location of where I think this cemetery is - but I have not visited this location yet to see if I'm right.
