I am trying to get the location of Woodland and Baylis cemeteries. Would like either GPS coords, or directions (what road it is on is fine) if possible. (I don't need turn by turn unless it is buried deep in he rural side roads. LOL!) I live in Bushnell, abt 1.5 hours away and would like to know where I am going before I get there to find my Bowman folks. I am no stranger to the Illinois back roads and I am armed with a county by county map. There are few places I can't get to...once I know where I am supposed to go! LOL!

Woodland Cemetery - I know it is in Fairmount Twsp but, doesn't have it. Genweb has it listed, a pretty picture, but not where it is.

Baylis Cemetery - I think I have an idea of where it is. Genweb says it is between Baylis and New Salem. Not listed on either.

Any help is much appreciated. The Bowmans I mentioned are actually my girlfriend's family (Diehl). The Diehls married into the Bowmans in 1928 when Ettie Bowman (dau of Alfred B. Bowman & Jane Saxon) married Floyd L. Diehl. Thanks again,
