   B.  John HARRISON.  HISTORY OF EBENEZER CEMETERY 1837 - 1928 By Sara

   John English On February 22, 1837, Peter Akers and Elizabeth Reid, his

   wife, conveyed by a Trust Deed (for religious and educational purposes)

   to the Trustees of the Ebenezer Society, one acre of land about four

   miles northwest of Jacksonville, in the Northeast fractional quarter of

   Section 6, Township 15 North of Range 10 West, being 12 rods wide by 13

   1/3 rods long. This is where the old part of the Ebenezer Cemtery is now

   located. The Society then built a double room frame building thereon and

   used one part for a church and the other for a school. During the year

   1838 Benjamin R. Clampit, son of M. & L., age 4 years, 7 days was buried

   about 100 feet south of the church. This is, as far as we have

   knowledge, the first person buried on this plot. The said building was

   used continually until December 1866. During this thirty years or more

   there were a great many people buried on the south part of this one acre

   plat, which was under the supervision of the Trustees of the Ebenezer

   Society. The old church was abandoned on account of a new church and

   school being built on other ground, but the community continued to use

   the cemetery plat. On March 10, 1878 a petition was filed with the

   Illinois Secretary of State by the following men: Thos. B. Cully; T. H.

   Moody; Wm. Patterson; W. H. Jordan; A. C. Patterson; John Harrison;

   Samuel Garrett, J. H. Williamson, George D. Blackburn, Thos. Angel and

   John Angel, asking for incorporation papers under the name of "The

   Ebenezer Cemetery Association" which was allowed. Those selected to

   serve one year were Cully, Patterson, Harrison, Moody, Jordan, Garrett

   and Blackburn. On March 29, 1879 the Board of Trustees of the cemetery

   purchased, for the sum of $115.00, 2 1/2 acres more land from John

   Angel, adjoining the one acre on the northwest and south. However, these

   2 1/2 acres were of very little value to the cemetery as that part of

   the north and south ends were very low and wet and could not be used for

   burial purposes. The Board of Trustees in 1919 were: A. A. Dyer, Logan

   Black, Chas. E. Patterson, A. C. Reid, C. S. Black, C. E. James and

   Austin B. Patterson.  He was born on 22 Sep 1845 at Illinois.  Anne,
