Jones Family Cemetery


Jones Family Cemetery is located in Section 34 of Kickapoo Township on private property. From the City of Peoria, drive Illinois Route 116 to Maxwell Road. Turn left onto Maxwell & go to the Hanna City Blacktop (dead ends at stop light. You have to turn left or right onto the Hanna City Blacktop). Turn left and go to the signs that point to Norwood and turn right. Go through the town of Norwood to Aspen Road. Once on Aspen Road, go all the way to the end; then turn right on Ellory Road (which eventually changes to Jones Hollow Rd.). You will immediately see a field on the left. The first house you see past the field, on your left, is where the cemetery is located. It is behind the house, past the shed, the pile of dirt and dog kennel. Please ask permission from the current resident before venturing back there.
