West Frankfort, Illinois is located on Interstate 57 in Southern Illinois. It was a coal mining town for most of the 20th Century. The Lithuanian Cemetery is located south of West Frankfort off Highway 37. The Frankfort Area Genealogical Society has published listings of this and about 20 other Franklin County Cemeteries. They have given permission to post this Lithuanian listing on the Internet. The Lithuanian Global Genealogical Society is grateful to them for their generosity.
To visit the cemetery, take State Highway 37 to Woody Road, turn east about 1/2 mile, cross the railway tracks to Old Johnston City Road. The cemetery is on the southeast corner of this intersection. St. John's Catholic Cemetery is nearby and some Lithuanian names are listed here. It is not predominately Lithuanian.
