**Hint: Use ctrl + f in Firefox to find the name you are looking for** The Cunningham Cemetery (Page 11) The Cunningham Cemetery is a family cemetery, located on a hill in a wooded area. A subdivision has grown up in the area surrounding the wrought iron-enclosed plot. It is very overgrown and only with the help of a previous list, made by the late Bernard Bach and his wife Mary, was it possible to locate and check these stones. The first ten names are all on a newer monument, however. The original stones are still there, excepting those for Cyrus and Mary T. Cunningham. The original list was published in the Illiana Geneologist, Summer 1974, p.79. Thanks to this publication for their permission to reprint this list. To visit the cemetery, take the first left turn off 63 South after crossing 136. This road leads into the subdivision. Continue to the right as the road curves. At the base of a hill is a white two-story farm house owned by Daryl Hollowell, where a cul-de-sac provides the closest parking area. The cemetery is off to the right, over a very small stream and up a hill. Please remember to ask permission for access.
