It might be easier looking for a particular person than trying to find the surname in a cemetery. Spellings of that name also had changed: Osburn, Osbourn, etc. Sometimes correctly, or sometimes how a census taker spelled it.

Find-a-grave does not show that cemetery.

The Bureau of Land Management has a database of land patents issued under the Homestead Act:
It shows 12 pages of Osborn's obtaining land in Illinois, but none in Wabash County. It shows Miller's obtaining land, but no John. No Joy's obtained land.

The 1870 census has a Catharine, about 1812; Jackson, about 1830; and Sarah Osborn, about 1855, in Wabash, Wabash County. In 1870, Ephriam Joy was living in Bridgeport, Lawrence Co, IL, born about 1820. In 1840, a Sarah Joy was in Wabash, with one male 20-30, and two females 15-20. The 1840 has James Miller/5 in family, Barton Miller/8, Frederick/4, Louis Miller/5, and Valentine Miller/6. In 1830 on Barton and Frederick. In 1830, Sarah Joy/

This article: "Pioneers of Wabash County," had none of the names, but interesting:

A Bishop Osborne formed a methodist church council there in 1908

Here find a William Osborn that farmed in Wabash County for a spell:
