JACKSONVILLE EAST CEMETERY
Thanks to Jeanie Lowe for the taking and submitting the above photos. If you find errors which need corrected or
have additional information which should appear on one of the cemetery listing, let me know and
I'll make the corrections.
This is a large old cemetery. There are many many
graves without markers, some of the graves were probably never marked, others may have been marked
at one time, but the stones have since been lost or broken. There are a good many "piles" of
broken stones or stones which have fallen and been stacked up in the oldest Sections of
this cemetery. There are also a large number of metal funeral markers which were
used as permanent markers set in concrete - the letters have vanished, leaving the blank
metal plate containing no information.
In any old cemetery such as this one there are old markers which are either impossible
to read or impossible to read accurately. When I completed the process of reading the
cemetery, I compared my list to the lot records extracted by Florence and to the list of deaths
extracted from Morgan County records at various times. I merged the lists together, adding those names
which weren't recorded during my reading. The entries added from lot/cemetery records
generally consist of only a name or perhaps a name and age; the entries taken
from death records usually include a name, death date and, perhaps, an age. I've
attempted to avoid duplicating entries - unfortunately names on each of the
three records (tombstones, cemetery records and death records) are spelled in
a variety of ways so you may encounter some duplicates.
Information enclosed in ( ) has been added and does not appear
on the stones.
