In Reply to: A Little Cemetery Humor by Steve Adamson of 273

I have several ancestors buried just down the hill to the west of Abraham Carlock who is buried on top of the hill. Both cemeteries are in Woodford County, not one in each county as the article says. The Carlock Cemetery also know as North White Oak Cemetery is about a half mile north of the Woodford - McLean County Line. There is a memorial marker on the county line indicating that Abraham Lincoln passed that way as he was riding the circuit. This is a very interesting historical story.
