Newcomer Cemetery, Springfield IL

This'll be my first post. Hope I'm approved. Hi!

This is a largely abandoned cemetery just off the road along the east side of Lake Springfield in Springfield, IL. None of the graves are newer than the 1960s, and it's only being kept mowed by the roadside crews. It's called Newcomer Cemetery because the bulk of the graves belonged to the Newcomer family that used to live nearby, and not because they buried newcomers to the Springfield area there. Ha.
