To reach this cemetery driving south on Rt. 30 (Joliet Road), one can turn right onto Rt. 59 (Division St) and the cemetery will be on your left or continue on Rt 30 and the cemetery has an entrance on your right.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Plainfield Township and it is still being used for burial.

I have tried as hard as possible to decipher the older stones of which there are many. I am sure there are a some mistakes but they are as close as I could get to the correct name and dates. There were many illegible stones, many unmarked burial sites.

This cemetery does not put everything in perfectly straight rows and all stones do not face the same direction. There are some stones that had 2 surnames and some stones that had 1 surname on one side and a different surname on the other.

There are stones with the name Townhill. There are 2 stones that there is no H in and that is correct. The military stones I have put the abbreviations exactly as they were on the stone.

The are many plats or rows where there were many stones with the same last name. Sometimes there would be a row with 4 stones and in the middle would be a stone by a different name but still was identical to the others. Those I included in the same group.

I started reading this cemetery in June of 2007 and after to many hours to count I finished transcribing on Nov 15, 2007. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers at this time.
