That sounds like it would be in the same area as the Wyoming Cemetery. I have
a copy of an 1872 plat map which shows what appears to be a cemetery south of
what used to be West Paw Paw. That would be too early for the Frantz Grove
Cemetery, but though I assumed it was Wyoming, I couldn't find anything in my
records offhand which would verify that the Wyoming cemetery had been in
existence that long. They could have merged too at some point.

Hi Dana and all who tried to help me..
Just an FYI for everyone .. I got this answer from Bob Boward who solved
of the Frantz Gove Cemetery -- thank you Bob !!
Now I need to figure out if its actually the one that is called Wyoming
"In the 1904 Rock River Valley Collection the section on Lee County History
In the spring of 1893, W. B. McMahon surveyed and platted for Mr. B. Frantz
known as The Frantz Grove Cemetery, located about a half mile south of Paw
containing about nine acres of ground, which has been improved and
beautified until it
is now one of the most beautiful and attractive"cities of the dead" in this
part of the
country. The cemetery grounds include a handsome grove, where Decoration Day
in honor of the soldiers of the Civil War are held annually. During the same
McMahon platted the Frantz addition to Paw Paw."
