This is only about a mile north of the Warren/Mercer County line, and a few miles west of Norwood, in Suez Township, Mercer County, Illinois. As can be seen from the photo "Brownlee Cemetery", the cemetery is not maintained, although veterans graves were marked with flags (Memorial Day 2004). In the cemetery photo, the marker of Robert Pollock can be seen on the left hand side. Immediately next to his marker and reading north to south, but hidden in the photo by tall weeds, lies Jane Lee Henderson, her husband Ebenezer, their daughter Henrietta, then granddaughters Sara and Leola. According to government records, Brownlee cemetery was in use from 1842 to 1942.
