Elkhart Hill Cemetery
The first settler was James Latham. In 1824 he was appointed by President
John Quincy Adams to the position of Indian Agent at Fort Clark (now
Peoria). He moved the family there and in two years took ill and died.
They brought him back to the hill and buried him in Latham Cemetery (not
far from where his first cabin was built) which has the distinction of
being the oldest cemetery in Logan County.
