Coles County Cemeteries
When possible I have included GPS coordinates for the cemeteries. There are a couple different formats depending on the source. Standard Degree ( ° ), Minute ( " ) and Second ( ' ) [36° 21" 21' N] and decimal [36.44565°]. GPS coordinates are probablly the most accurate way to locate a cemetery. Driving directions are also included but may or may not be accurate. A map image ( ) after the Find A Grave link indicates that there is a map of the location on the Find A Grave site. A camera image ( ) indicates pictures.

Unity Cemetery
39.46652 -88.22127 FAG The name Unity Chapel was selected by Mattison Greenberry Brown when the church organizational meeting was held in his home in 1871, after his parents, James Young Brown and his wife, Elizabeth Ann (Glassco) Brown, had deeded one acre of land to the Trustees of the United Brethren of Christ in Charleston Township to build a church on.

Because of the involvement and close ties with members of the Brown family, the church was often called "Brown's Chapel".

Questionable Cemeteries
The following cemeteries are included here because they appear in one database or another but don't seem to have ever existed in Coles County. Realising that cemeteries may sometimes be known by different names in different times they are included here just in case. It has even been suggested that some may be cemetery names from surrounding counties that were mistakenly included in a database for Coles County.
