The McMahill Cemetery is located at the center of the north line of the northwest quarter of section 30 in Greenbush Twp. It is at the southwest edge of Little Swan Lake adjacent to the residential subdivision.

Most burials were in the middle to late 1800's; there have been few burials in recent decades. The cemetery is approximately one acre in size and well maintained by Greenbush Twp. Source: "Greenbush Township Tombstone Inscriptions", compiled by the Warren County Illinois Genealogical Society (1983)

The information presented here is a combined transcription from two books. The first book, "Early Days in Greenbush" , was originally written and published in 1905 by William L. Snapp. The copy I have is a re-print by the Carlberg Printing Co. in Roseville, Illinois. The second book, "Greenbush Township Tombstone Inscriptions", was compiled in 1983 by the Warren County Illinois Genealogical Society.

The list of graves presented here are not in the order or format in which they appear in the two books. The names have been combined and arranged in alphabetical order to make viewing easier and the dates are in a common format, but the information is correct.

Parentheses ( ) contain notes of the surveyor(s)
A few inscriptions appear in the earlier book but are missing from the later book. This could mean that the headstone was either destroyed, moved or perhaps missed by the surveyor. These inscriptions are identified by "##"

In March 1983, the McMahill Cemetery inscriptions were identified as:
