The cemetery lies south of the town of Harrington about ½ mi, on the left or east side of the Harrington-Tokio Road.
The cemetery, which is about 5+ acres, was established in 1898 and the first burial was that of Georgia Bethel in May 1898. Harrington previously had a cemetery 2 miles south of Harrington which was moved into this new cemetery in Nov 1898.
Hillcrest is owned and maintained by the City of Harrington. The sexton records are at city hall. The cemetery is well maintained and owns abutting land for future use. Abutting Hillcrest Cemetery to the south is St Francis of Assisi Cemetery, also owned by the City of Harrington. It is a separate cemetery formerly owned by the Catholic church.
This is a compilation of tombstones, sexton records and obituaries. I have walked the cemetery countless times. There are yet a number of unmarked and unidentified graves. The date of death or burial is listed to ensure the opportunity of obtaining documentation. In many cases the tombstone date was in error, making it difficult to document the death. In some cases the death date and identity of an unmarked grave was based on probate records or death certificates.
I have documentation on many of these listings, and will be happy to share a copy. If you would like to find out what I have please contact me at my e-mail address above. These are records up to Jan 15, 2002.- Marge Womach
