Located on the edge of Quarry Hill Nature Center, this small cemetery was essentially unmarked and uncared for for years, but that has changed over the past few years as there has been a renewal to get the graves marked better. One such grave here is that of William Henry Costley ((1835-1888). Costley is believed to be the first slave freed by Abraham Lincoln, when Costley was only 10-months old, and when Lincoln himself was a lawyer arguing before the Illinois State Supreme Court.
