Saint Francis Cemetery
Putnam County, Illinois

Lat: 41° 12' 10"N, 89° 26' 17"W

Contributed by Madena Whitesell, Aug 08, 2004 [iluvot2@yahoo.com]. Total records = 147.

From Putnam on Rt 29 drive north for about 1.2 miles, then 3 miles west on the first road which is 665.

In 1863 Michael & Margaret Jennett, Thomas & Winifred Real deeded this plot of land to James Duggan, Bishop of Chicago. Francis Cemetery is now under the auspices of the Peoria Diocese, with much of the finances and up keep coming from Saint Joseph Church in Henry, Il.

This is an active cemetery occasionally, with the last burial dated 1999. It is thought that Francis Real was the first buried here. This cemetery is sometimes referred to as Saint Joseph Cemetery, which is incorrect.

I finished surveying this cemetery on Aug 06, 2004. This includes all existing and legible headstones.
