The sad state of Maddox Cemetery

The Maddox Cemetery, located on former Maddox land currently owned by farmer Bobby Walker in Crawford County, Illinois, and containing the bodies of Maddoxes spanning three generations, has been unconscionably abused. We have sent Mr. Walker numerous pleas to sell the site for our preservation effort, but he has ignored or declined them. In 1995, we saw at least 5 gravestones at the site, but Mr. Walker has obviously destroyed and displaced them. Now, only Thomas and Charlotte’s graves are visible. It is shameful… and illegal.
