FORD COUNTY CEMETERY RECORDS
(burials prior to 1964)
This was a hand-typed, hand-bound book which did not bear a copyright date, but was probably compiled by the Governor Thomas E. Ford Chapter of the DAR c. 1963. Many thanks to Gail Hahn Hutchcraft [firstname.lastname@example.org] for finding and transcribing this document for the benefit and free use of all Ford County, Illinois researchers.
The names in the book were presented in "close-to" alphabetical order, meaning they were placed within the proper letter group. I've gone a step further and alphabetized the whole list. There are 9 burials listed here.
An old graveyard on the Orval Clem farm in Patton, Section 23, Twp, Ford County, Il. South and East of State Hwy #45, going south. Copied in its entirety by: Ruth D. Bricker, 4-5-1966.
