McDonough County of west-central Illinois has almost 100 cemeteries and burial sites,
many of them are no longer in use and are difficult to locate.
Here is information from the McDonough County Historical Society to assist in locating cemeteries in the county.
GPS Coordinates of McDonough County Cemeteries (and driving directions!)
As an on-going project for the past five years, the McDonough County Historical Society locates cemeteries in the county and places a marker at each one, so the cemeteries will not be lost and so that those who came before us will not be forgotten.
A marker has been placed at 95 cemeteries in the county.
The McDonough County Cemetery Marker Project is a project of the McDonough County Historical Society, Macomb, Illinois.
The project has been coordinated by Gil Belles of the McDonough County Historical Society.
