Note:  It is important that researchers verify all information in these cemetery transcriptions.

Our thanks to Marjorie Smith for contributing this information to the Jo Daviess website.

This cemetery is located in the southeast quarter of Section 14. It is north of the intersection of East Rush Town Road and East Chelsea Road.

Note: Bonnie Selig was able to make an appointment with the lady who now owns the property that Robinson Cemetery (Rush Twp) is on - she will not allow anyone up there, other than the township to do some mowing, and on occasion, by appointment. Bonnie had contacted her on Labor Day, 2005, and it took almost a month for her to get up there to get some cemetery photos, and she doubts she would be making a return trip. She did get a photo of what is left of the cemetery (many broken and sunken stones) and it has been made available to this website. Please note that Robinson Cemetery is on private property and there is no access. If anybody was thinking of making a special trip from out of state that she would let them up there, but does not want the "general public going thru her property and turning it into a tourist attraction..." If anybody is serious about getting there, please contact Bonnie or Colleen (the webmaster) on the main page, and Bonnie will in turn contact them with her phone number.
