Pike Township Cemetery

Pike Township Cemetery was founded on April 12, 1887 and is located in Section 16 in Pike Township, Livingston County, 4 miles south of Graymont, Illinois. Founding officers were Green Tacey, Chairman; J.H. Beeks, Secretary; and Joe Unzicker, Treasurer. The records show that a 16X32 foot lot sold for $10.00. Two burials were at the cemetery before 1887, Mrs. Klein and Mrs. Gentes. The cemetery is well maintained and many of the older stones have been repaired. In 2004, an addition was added on the north side of the cemetery. It was donated by the Uphoff family. The lot size now is a burial site and taxpayers of Pike Township can buy at a reduced rate.
