CEMETERIES
Scott Cemetery

Scott Cemetery, Lamoine-Bethel, McDonough County, Illinois.

For a good many years I have wondered how many married people have been buried in Scott's Cemetery, no record having been kept and each one burying in it as he pleased. It was hard to keep track of those buried there, and what makes it still more difficult is the fact so many have no tombstones to mark their graves.

The first person buried there was Olive Holton, grandmother of the writer, who was buried in Oct. 1836. Joseph Carter was the second and John, a two year old child of Issac Bartlett was the third. The next I do not remember. I have spared no pains to have the record of the married people as correct as possible and possibly some names left out, but they are few. I have lived in the vicinity ever since we came to Illinois in 1835 and was present when my grandmother was buried. I got the list of names up in the first place for my own satisfaction and when I read them to neighbors they said "Why don't you have them printed?" So I have given it to the public and make no apology for it.
