CAVENDER ROBINSON

COMPANY "A"

4th ILLINOIS CAVALRY

UMBANHOWAR CEMETERY, CHAMPALGN COUNTY, ILLINOIS

The cemetery is difficult to reach and is accessed only by walking about 400 feet along a fence, and past a wooded area, it is overgrown but some stones are still standing. It is located between Homer and Sidney in Section 1 of Sidney Township. In 1907 it was known that the cemetery contained about 5O burials.

The headstones were transcribed in 1956, and although most of them included verses, which referred to the deceased, these epitaphs were not recorded. The name is also spelled Umbenhower and Umbenhour
