Does anyone know of a cemetery located on a dirt leading from Delwood, Pope Co., IL to Carrier Mills, Saline Co., IL??? This would be the possible resting place of HARVEY MORSE who died between 1886 and 1893 in Pope County. His grave would not have ahead stone, but a group of rocks set upon his grave.


Thanks for stopping by! Y'all come back!
