Sims Cemetery
Paris, Edgar County, Illinois

Hwy 40 & Rupp Rd, Martinsville IL

Lat: 39° 31' 43"N, Lon: 87° 38' 37W
T13N R11W Sec 33

Contributed by Dennis Lamb, Dec 01, 2006 [dennislamb@msn.com]. Total records = 157.

From the County Courthouse in Paris IL, drive south on Hwy 1 about 4 miles. Turn left (east) on Hill Rd and continue about 2 miles. The Cemetery is on the right (south) side of road.

This cemetery is well kept but has many old illegible and partially illegible tombstones. The Sims family were prominent farmers in the area dating from the early 1800s. No investifation was made concerning current ownership or management of the cemetery.

I surveyed this cemetery on Oct 24, 2006. All legible tombstones are included.
