Renner Family Cemetery is located at 19366 Loran Rd. about 10 miles north
of Mt. Carroll. It is a small cemetery on private property. (Click
on the map for a larger view) The township has made great strides to clean
up this cemetery and keep it looking nice. Bev (Renner) & Bob DeFord
sent us the picture at the top of the page taken last October, 2004 which shows
how nice the cemetery looks now.
On 16 Aug 2003 I took some pictures
and wrote down the following information. I'm sure there are more stones
According to Carroll County: a goodly heritage, "The
Renner church and Renner school stood west and north of Keltner, one on each
side of the Loran county highway..." It goes on to say that the church was
not used and torn down in 1967. "There were news accounts of monthly
lyceum and other entertainment at this school over the years." (It would
be interesting to have more info on the Renner church and school.)
The Carroll County
Genealogical Society may have more info on additional burials, military info, obituaries, etc. I
hope you will contact them.
These are in no particular order, just as I found them as I
walked around the cemetery.
