    1. What I experienced today august 16 at 245 pm is behind words I have proof pictures and a soul that is forever changed as evidence I do not no what happened to Matie 1889 to 1899 but please let her be. That place changed my life and woke me up. Kids its not cool to disrespect the deceased let them be. Her grave is over 100 plus years old and there’s pentigrams and blasfumy in the shed 10 feet away from her grave. For everybody that’s trying to get a scare don’t go you’ll just feel wrong doing it. That girl communicated with me when I showed her love by putting flowers on her grave and please please please respect her she means no harm. If you go bring a flower and show respect the fallen are very much a presence on earth so for your safety go there with love she was ten years old its a gravity what happend to her. Thank you

      • Hello…can you please tell me where Mattie DeJarld’s gravestone is? (1889-1899) My daughter and I circled the whole cemetery twice looking for her gravestone and also the stone of Adeline Stevenson. (1847-1853) We looked high and low and both are no where to be found…we went during the day

    2. Went to Aux for the first time and snappwd a bunch of pics. This is one of the pics I took. If you zoom in, you can see the face of a young boy.

    3. although we have no photographic proof, tonight (September 3rd 2016) at 10:30 Pm me and three of my other girl friends traveled to AUX SABLE Cemetery to test the whole car windows thing. As we traveled down Brown Rd, which seemed like it took forever, we talked like normal teenagers. I as the driver was already skeptical about the whole situation, Although i do believe in most supernatural things. as we arrived at the cemetery and i seen the aux sable cemetery sign, i sub-consciously stopped my car. I still to this moment have no idea why i stopped my car, i have no recollection of pressing the brake but i physically had stopped the car. Us four sat and discussed whether we should continue into the cemetery or not; Which we did. We slowly drove past the sign and continued to go over the bridge, as soon as we got to the other side of the bridge we IMMEDIATLY got the worst vibes in the world. It was the darkest feeling I personally have ever had in my life. It didn’t feel like fear, it felt like the verge of a panic attack. We decided we would leave so we drove around the tree (the one in the picture above) and my friend (who is also a strong believer in everything supernatural) heard a dog bark. so we went to exit the cemetery, and as we drove over the bridge i looked down to the creek and seen a woman standing there dressed in an all white dress, the woman looked to be around 70 years old. The woman wasnt looking at my car at first but the second i looked at her, her glace shot to me. it felt like the woman was staring into my soul. I paniced and sped up and refused to tell my friends what i saw until we exited the cemetery. i told them and they had me describe it. We conversed about the weird vibes we were getting and decided we should stop at the rest stop on I80 East. so we stopped there and me and one of my other friends started to feel extremely nauscious. we went to the bathroom and i almost passed out while i was sitting on the toilet. we all came out of the stalls and were talking about the whole situation, and i looked into the mirror and not only did i not feel real, my pupils were dialated and i didnt feel like myself. we got into the car and prayed, hoping nothing evil had followed us. then drove home. ive never had a more dark feeling in my life then today, and i have had an estimated 12 other supernatural encounters in my 18 years ive been alive….nothing like this one.

      A friend took me and a girlfriend there and it was about 10:00am! He said it was known to be haunted, didn’t give it a second thought I love looking at old cemetery plots and of course I took photos! There is only one way in and one way out! I took a photo of the e it leading to the bridge and I couldn’t believe what I saw! Mind you every other picture I took was perfect if

    5. This is the second time my 15 year old daughter and I went to Aux Sable cemetery. This time we found a lot of debris…my daughter asked me “Why are people so cruel leaving their garbage where loved ones are buried?” She found a bunch of beer bottles, wine bottle, and a beer box and threw them all in the garbage. She gets sensitive about stuff like that. Cemeteries should be serene and not have garbage all over the place. That is disrespectful especially to those who have loved ones there. Please take your garbage with you.

      In the year 2012 me and my friends decided to take a ride at this place 8 of us…we took it as a joke like many other people but I deep inside was scared as shit…at first I heard a young voice inside the cemetery around 10 clock at night…I couldn’t distinguish wether it was a laughing or crying voice ….I tried telling my friends I can hear the voice of a young person (not knowing the actual story behind this place) But 15 minutes later everyone heard immediately paniced and we left as fast as we could. Everyone was pale white I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that heard. I’m 100% sure we were the only ones that night .

    7. looking to hear from you i work in local hotel 3 evenings a week and my father passed away about 5 years ago and i have question that i have not find answer on here is my contact number 1-815-915-9727 and email at at address 444 south church street apt 608 princeton ill 61356 and email 1-815-915-9727 please contact i also have post on face book thank you.

    8. Live very close to this cemetery. In fact, I wish to be buried here. Been here many, many times. Have never experienced anything out of the ordinary.

    9. DEBUNKED!

      Everything about this place is fake. It’s made up garbage by mostly teens looking for a cheap thrill and a quiet place to get drunk at night and I would know because as a teen that’s what we did and we were caught. The police frequently visit the cemetery because someone at one time defaced the gravestones.

      If you are a teen looking for a thrill you won’t find it here. Go be normal. Do good in school and go away to college. You will have the time of your life. Channahon and especially Morris will be that boring place you lived with nothing to do.
