Clark County, Illinois

My recent visit to the Urbana Free Library Archives identified two cemeteries of interest in Clark County, Illinois: Dean Cemetery and Macke Cemetery.

Quite a few Maurers are buried there: Andrew, his first wife Susannah, and several of their children (the ones who died in infancy, anyway).

Clark County is across the state line from Terre Haute, down where the Illinois / Indiana border gets all squiggly; Google says it’s a ninety-minute drive from Champaign.

As it turns out, I’m burning some vacation time next week (to avoid losing it come August 1st); perhaps a road trip would be a good project for the day….
