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.
The cemetery markers project is supported by Clugston-Tibbitts Funeral Home in Macomb and Blandinsville, the Community Quality of Life Advisory Committee, Dodsworth-Piper-Wallen Funeral Home in Macomb, Table Grove State Bank,MidAmerica National Bank, the McDonough County Highway Department, the McDonough County Genealogical Society and the McDonough County Historical Society.
