Francis Cemetery

                                      SW 1/4 of NE 1/4 Section 25

Francis Cemetery can be reached from Goreville by going south on Rte 37 1.1 miles to the Tunnel Hill Rd.  Turn east and go 1.9 miles.  The Francis Cemetery will be on the right side of the road.  It cannot be seen from the highway.  Alternately, the cemetery can be reached by traveling I-24 to the Goreville Exit at the Tunnel Hill Rd.  Turn west on the Tunnel Hill Rd; the Francis Cemetery will be .4 of a mile on the left.  There will be a house with a barn next to it.  Stop at the house to ask permission to go to the cemetery.  It is located about 1/8 mile beyond the barn.  The cemetery is not maintained.  Many of the stones are broken and some are missing from the last inventory taken in the 1970's.  Several trees have grown up among the stones, but it is relatively free from underbrush, probably because of the heavy growth of trees.  There has not been a burial in over 70 years.
