Mount Hope Cemetery
Claremont, Richland County, Illinois

Lat: 38° 38' 09"N, Lon: 87° 56' 34"W
Bonpas Twp, R14E Sec 2

Contributed by Lauretta Cook, Jul 29, 2004 [laurettac@yahoo]. Total records = 44.

From Claremont take Hwy #900 south about 9 mi, then left for 1/2 mile, cemetery is on south side of the road beside the church. One can also take Hwy #130 south from Olney toward Calhoun, following the signs around to the cemetery.

This is the cemetery for the Mount Hope Church. It appears to have started in the late 1800s and is still used occasionally, as recent as 1997. Many of the stones are either gone or illegible.

I walked and read this cemetery in the summer of 2004. It includes all existing and legible markers and stones.
