Pictured above are my two little helpers in the Hope Cemetery, Galesburg Twp., Knox Co., IL.  Above them on the Ark it says: "The Dead shall Rise"


          Here is a listing of all known cemeteries in the Knox County area in the prospective townships.  When I have more time will put better directions to the cemeteries and also will be making a blogg to upload maps to the cemeteries.  I have listings of all the Knox burials for most of these Cemeteries.  "Now only need to get complete copies of  Memorial Park Cemetery, East Linwood, Williamsfield, & Oak Lawn Cemetery.  Otherwise I have all the listings of the known burials in the Knox County Illinois Cemeteries.""

If you would like to add a cemetery to this list or would like to add any information, corrections, additions,  or suggestions, please email I am always open for new information on any cemetery.  I've been to quite a few and plan on going to quite a few more. Any help in this project and the Savings Graves project would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!!!

 Always a work in progress....

Please note from here on out all cemeteries in Knox County will be listed as their original Names.

I see no reason to list them as the names that other folks put on them later on down through the years. There are other people out there other than myself who have done research on the history of the some of the cemeteries and I thank them very much for all their hard work. As if not before us, there might not be anything here left for us to find in some of these cemeteries.

"You have my deepest gratitude and my kindly thanks with my heartfelt best wishes; for a job well-done!"
