Sugarville was a community near Put Creek in Joshua Township, Fulton County, Illinois. It once had several houses, a blacksmith shop, and a general store. It no longer exists today.[citation needed]

The Geographic Names Information System lists it only as part of an alias for Moore Cemetery in Joshua Township.[1]

Skeeter Bonn (Junior Lewis Boughan) was born in Sugarville; he moved to Canton when he was 13. In the 1950s, he was a country music performer on several national radio shows, including the WLS National Barn Dance.[2][3]
