Karen Hammer's Peoria Co., Il @ AHGP--- No longer exists!!! as of May 29, 2008 was there yesterday gone today. Karen, has loads of tombstone photos online with many more to come as I've taken some for her, she's been herself & taken some and then some have contributed to her for your pleasure but are under copy right laws.  Email Karen for Information on the Cemetery and also if you would have any to contribute.

 You may also contribute to me at the above email link of the my doggie and I will see that they get online here too. Leaving that up to you. But I don't know that much about Peoria County, IL, Cemeteries, best bet if Karen and the Peoria County Genealogical Society by contacting either one of them first.

Thanks for time.

Another good Peoria Co., IL site for Genealogical Information can be found here.

Peoria County, Illinois History & Genealogy Trails by Candi Horten

Not going to continue to make all townships with all cemeteries in their prospective townships as it takes too long to make.  So, will just be putting the cemeteries with their townships and then add when others want to contribute to this site or somebody wants to adopt it and put more online. Thanks.

Thanks for your help.

Tidbit Information, first year then information before IL became a State before Peoria became a County:

1680 ---La Salle built Fort Crevecoeur near present-day Peoria.

1691 ---Starved Rock mission moved to Peoria area and some French settlers collected around the mission and the fort.

1700- 1703 Jesuits moved mission from Peoria to the Mississippi Valley, settling briefly at Des Peres River and then founding the town of Kaskaskia near the mouth of the Kaskaskia River.
As of November 11, 2009-- I was informed if we don't get enough donations this year I will probably be without a web hosting. is not receiving enough in donations to carry on. So, I've decided in order to keep this up if they do go under which I hope they do not and if you would like to contribute click here, it is one of the very few Non-profit organizations for genealogy that is left and in order to provide more information plus, tombstone photos I'm in the process of doing this for each of the counties in IL. Here you can also join and upload tombstone photos of your own to add to the many I have already put online. some cemeteries are complete some are not. Springdale ones are all on here over 1,0000 photos.  took me awhile but they are on. I have so many on my computer and back up drive and felt they were not doing anyone any good just sitting here so I found this site and it's a wonderful place. Hope you will join me. Thanks just click on the link below. I approve all membership to make sure they are for this purpose. Thanks & Happy Gene Hunting.
