Allen Cemetery

"Pleasant Hill Graveyard"

Allen Cemetery is located in Section 27 of Zanesville (Range 10 N 5 W), Montgomery Co., Illinois. From I-55 take the Illinois Highway 108 Exit. Head north on East Frontage Road and turn right onto Trailers Lane. The cemetery can be accessed from a small path from the property owners front yard (please make contact with property owner before heading down to cemetery). About 200-250 ft down the path is a large tree on the right. Cut up the hill from this tree. A small gated area will 1st been seen. Trees and brush cover most of the cemetery. 139 markers have been located as of April 2009 and we're still finding more with every twig we remove. A map of the cemetery has been made to assist in helping others locate markers until the cemetery is restored.

Carol Hounsell and Ann Stoddard are organizing efforts to restore this cemetery. Contact us if you would like to help us preserve this cemetery that dates back to the 1st settlers in Zanesville Township, Montgomery County.
