Hi Chuck, do you have any records on the Simpson-Ressler Cemetery in Johnson Twp, about 7 miles southeast of Taylorville? My great-grandmother Margaret Logsdon (Josephus) Durbin is buried there. The cemetery is on private land where I grew up near the one-room Meader School.
Thanks for any information on reclaiming this sadly neglected cemetery. Shirley Harris, Springfield
