Cross Cemetery




Cross Cemetery is located outside the city of Decatur in Oakley Township, on Star Route Rd., off of Rea's Bridge Road, between Coulters Mill Road and Prairie View Road.





Many volunteers take time to drive out to the cemeteries and read the stones. The information is presented as sent. If you know of anyone buried in a Macon County cemetery, please send me an email, and I will add the info. Photos are always welcome. A big THANK YOU to all who help this project grow.
