    My husband and I saw this small cenetery from Rt 45 in Douglas County, Illinois and I just couldn't resist checking it out.  It is located on Rt. 45 at 1350N.  2 gravestones were leaning up against trees is the only reason I noticed it.  There is a sign that says Mt. Zion Cemetery  1863.  We found 1 partial stone that was broken and had no name, and 4 other stones.
