Searching for the Heyl Family of Southern Illinois

St. Marcus Cemetery

St Marcus was the starting point for the hunt for Heyls.  Our ‘anchor’ has been the Heyl family marker in the St. Marcus Cemetery on Rte. 159, a few miles south of Hecker in Monroe County, Illinois.

Several first and second generation Heyls are buried in St. Marcus, and the rest are scattered around Monroe and Randolph counties.
