Jackson County Illinois Poor Farm Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays October 1, 2019

I saw this on my Facebook feed earlier today – Castle Perilous Games & Books sharing an article about Forgotten in death: SIUC archaeologists, students try to find location of Jackson County Poor Farm Cemetery: https://thesouthern.com/news/local/siu/forgotten-in-death-siuc-archaeologists-students-try-to-find-location/. I chose it as this week’s Tombstone Tuesdays post.
