St Joseph's Cemetery

  St. Joseph's Cemetery is located just south of East Linwood and Linwood Cemeteries in Galesburg, IL.  If you are on Main Street., travel west going towards Monmouth.  When you see a The Ford Car Dealer ship, Lakis Ford, on the right hand side of the road there will be a stop light here and that street is Linwood Road.  Turn Right.  Go to Monmouth Boulevard and turn right.  You can see the cemetery from the road.  Swing's Mobil park is right across the street from it.  This is an old Cemetery that was established when the St. Mary's Cemetery in Knoxville was filling up and the Catholics needed another place to bury their loved ones.  There are allot of unique stones in this cemetery.  I have just recently taken over 200 photos of the tombstones in this cemetery.  Time permitting with all my other duties I plan on putting them here for your pleasure.

This is the final resting place of John Slattery's family.  the little stones in the front  are for where they are buried.
