									MATHER CEMETARY South East Quarter, Section 14, Orange Township, Knox County, Illinois This cemetery was copied in 1972 by Florence Sargeant from original records in the possession of Warren C. and Nellie Stevens. In June, 1981 Mildred Doubet and Pam Eagle recopied it for the Knox County Genealogical Society. I recopied it in November, 2001 as I restored the cemetery for Orange Township. All rows were read from left to right, facing East. I've also included if they had a Will or Probate on burials prior to 1900. This cemetery is well taken care of, although it has suffered much damage and change in the past. Without a doubt there are many unmarked burials here. Only a couple of the footstones are where they belong, the others have been placed into the rows with the headstones, not necessarily even close to where they belong, and most have been cemented into the ground. The following are the ones that have initials that don't match a name: M. W. G. I. (Broke off, probably one of the Isaac Mathers) G. A. G. (I could not find this one) E. L. L. Todd Walter November 2001 ************
