Sycamore Plains Cemetery

This cemetery was contributed by Rance Phillips

 Located Northeast of Mill Springs in Pope County in the Shawnee National Forest. The cemetery is within walking distance of the 
Massac County Line. There were many graves, several of which are unmarked and merely sunken spots in the woods. There are 
also several, which I was unable to read the markings on the stones. Some of the stones were homemade and had been scribed 
on by hand. The following were the tombstones that I could make out. Hopefully someone will find that lost love one that they have been searching for.
