Discover historic McCord Cemetery (established in 1835) and the final resting place
This website is dedicated to the lives of hardworking pioneers who journeyed to the
rich farm lands of Illinois to raise families. They lived simply. Their lives were
rich in triumphs but marred with losses. Many of their stories can be interpreted
from their grave markers.
This site is under development but there is plenty to explore now. The veteran’s
list contains the service information and photographs of the headstones marking the
graves of eighteen brave soldiers who served in five wars, from the American Revolution
to the Korean War. The inscription list is my transcription of the grave markers.
See the “Coming Soon” section on the right for upcoming features.
