Hunter Cemetery

Located about 3 miles east and 1 mile north of Mt. Auburn in Mosquito Township of Christian County in Illinois.  
It is marked by an iron entrance and can be seen from the main road.
This cemetery is currently well cared for and there is evidence
that an attempt was made to repair some of the older stones. 

Hunter cemetery is east of Mt. Auburn with and iron arch framing the entrance on the north side of the Mt. Auburn blacktop.  The cemetery is kept in good condition.  This is a very old cemetery with the majority of the old stones being sandstone; therefore they are white and badly weathered making them very difficult to read.  Also several stones that were read in 1969 are now missing.
This plot of  ground was donated by John Hunter for a cemetery and Christina Church about 1840.  Elder Andrew Northcut was the minister of this congregation.  His first wife is buried here.  Her stone has either disappeared or is one of those that are completely unreadable now.
Rosella & Harold Brookens
