Lone Tree Corner Cemetery
Putnam, Bureau County, Illinois
Lat: 41° 11' 03"N, Lon: 89° 28' 55"W
Wheatland Twp, T14N R Sec 21
This cemetery is located 5 miles west of Routh 29 on 500N going into 250N, also known as the Bradford Blacktop just outside of a little town called Putnam. The cemetery is located on the left side as you proceed west into Bureau County heading towards the town known as Bradford.
There is no sign within this cemetery. There is a memorial marker placed to the front, within the cemetery, in remembrance of the original persons buried at the original site known as 'Lone Tree Cemetery'. Several markers, found from that cemetery, are laying in a pile at the edge of this cemetery.
The cemetery is kept up but I do not know by whom and appears to be inactive. I have tried to reseach this cemetery as well as the original Lone Tree Cemetery but have found only that this cemetery was established in 1860 which is only ten years after the original. If anyone knows of the history to either of these cemeteries, please let me know, as I will add to this data as permitted.
