Williams Cemetery
Crawford County,

Crawford County

This information is taken from Crawford County Tombstone Transcriptions - Small Cemeteries of Crawford County:

William's Cemetery is located in NW4 of Section 33 Township 27S Range 24E. At the Farlington corner on Highway 7, go two miles East, then 2.7 miles North to the new Steele residence (on the West side of the road). Then walk to the East across a pasture nearly ¼ mile. The Steele residence might also be described as being just less than ½ mile South of the North line of Section 32 and 33. The cemetery appears to be about 200 yards West of a North-South fence which divides the former 'Redlon Ranch' on the East from the Steele farm where the cemetery is located. The cemetery is in a grove of trees, including one evergreen and just to the Southeast of a little draw. It was approached on foot across a pasture from the Southwest, due to brush directly to the West of the cemetery.

This cemetery is about 100 feet square and was once fenced, but only posts remain in places, and cattle graze the land. Only two stones are still standing, and these leaned badly. There were three or four rows of graves in the South central part. We found no graves in the rest of the cemetery but, no doubt some are unmarked, and several bases of missing stones are visible. A second visit to this old cemetery in 1973, located five more stones under leaves, etc. which had not been found on the first trip.
