Scott Cemetery
aka
Magill Cemetery

   



   

   
Two miles east of the east end of Lake Mauvaisterre is the Scott Cemetery which is also known as the Magill Cemetery. To find this cemetery, turn north off Rte. 104 on Ginder Road. Drive approximately 1 and 1/2 miles and the cemetery can be seen (if the crops aren't tall) on the left (west) side of the road, approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile out in the field. The cemetery is just a bit south and west of the intersection of Ginder Rd. and Prairie College Rd. The cemetery is located in the southeast quarter of Section 25 in Township 15 N Range 10 W. The remnants of a fence can still be seen. William Scott deeded this cemetery to Morgan County on August 24, 1839. The surrounding farm was owned by descendants of the Scott Family (Earl and Ruby Baxter, children of Eva Scott Baxter) on Feb. 10, 1971 when one of the original listings of this cemetery was completed. I've combined original listings created by Jerry McClure and several others to create this new listing. In addition, I've added several burials which I've picked up from obituaries and death records.

Note: When Earl and I visited this cemetery on 5 May 2008, we found it very overgrown with weeks and tall grass, brush and briars. I'm certain there are more stones in this cemetery, but a return trip to look for others will have to wait until winter when the grass and weeds have died out. Most of the stones, with the exception of the very large markers and tall spires, are down and many were buried beneath several inches of dirt and leaves.
