CARLTON CEMETERY
Alsey Township

Carlton Cemetery is located 2.5 miles northwest of Alsey, in Scott County. The location is somewhat inaccessible by car. There is a dirt road leading to the cemetery from the main road, but it is rough and on a farmer’s fenced property. “Walking in would be your best bet.” So says Robert and Sharon Dobson, of Murrayville, who provided the Morgan Area G. & H. Society with a reading made 7 June 1977. The M.A.G.A. also acquired a reading made by someone else, on the same cemetery, from Mrs. Loreita Ballard who is County Clerk in Winchester.

Mrs. Florence Hutchison has combined these two readings and has found several differences in date readings, which is to be expected from old stones. It is rather universal that each person who looks at a stone may in some way determine that the lettering on a tombstone reads one way, while another looking at it with shadows at a different angle, and with differing sense of vision may see it another way. It is sometimes difficult to verify the correct date, by another party, without either checking a death certificate, a census record for age, a marriage record for names and initials, or seeing the actual stone themselves. Mrs. Hutchison has tried all, except the latter method, on this as well as the other cemeteries indexed with this one Most of the older stones are the only record of births and deaths since no death certificates were filed in Illinois, by law, until 1878. Many of the later deaths had no certificate on file in Winchester, as is true in Morgan. This can be due to the fact that the doctors in outlying districts did not find time to send such certificates to the County Clerk, local persons handled deaths for themselves, and received permission only from the sexton, or the person deceased in another county where the burial certificate lies.

The Dobson’s continued their description by saying: “Most of the monuments are in fair to good condition, however we feel many are missing and many more graves are marked with large rocks and stones. The cemetery is cared for once each year by descendants and members of the local 4-H club. A picnic is usually held after the clean-up. Yellow iris and peonies decorate the grounds, and it is quite pretty when the flowers are in bloom.

COLLINS CEMETERY

These two graves are about 25 feet apart, in a brushy area one mile east of Naples, or four miles west of Bluffs, in Scott County, Illinois. At the time of these two burials, Scott County was still a part of Morgan County as Scott County was not set off until 1839. The grave of Anson Collins is only about 20 feet from the road and can be seen from the road when the vegetation is not too thick. A tree is growing directly in front of the tombstone.

To the memory of ANSON COLLINS who departed this life on the 15th of May, 1835 aged 40 years. He emigrated to this state from Litchfield, Ct., in 1817. This is the first grave that was opened in this burial ground.

FOOT STONE: A. C. 1835
Sacred to the memory of ALMYRA, Infant daughter of Fred and Mary Collins, who departed this life Sept. 1, 18932 aged 15 months.

FOOT STONE: A. C. 1832
The above words are exactly what is engraved on the stones. As the child died before Anson Collins, perhaps her body was moved here at a date later than the burial of Anson Collins.
