A few years ago I visited the "Democratic Cemetery" in McLean County, Illinois, just north of the village of Carlock. "The Old Democrat", Abe Carlock, is buried there. He was an early settler in Central Illinois. McLean County was formed as a Democratic County, through some clever Gerrymander-ing. Next to it is Logan County, which was solid Whig (later Republican). Some of Abe Carlock's sons are buried in the Democratic Cemetery, and others are buried across the street in the Republican Cemetery.
