Tillotson cemetery plot in Crete, Illinois

Tillotson cemetery records from Crete, Will County, Illinois

These cemetery stone readings were provided by James R. Adams and Winston Demuth. Mr. Demuth read the stones. My thanks to them for providing me with this information. I have regularized the dates. Some of the stones were not readable when Mr. Demuth read them in 1998. They have been cleaned since and are generally legible now, as can be seen from the photos taken by Chuck King in August 2008. You may click on most of the names in the tables to see Chuck King's photo of that person's grave. My thanks to him for providing the photos.

Also see the Tillotson and Sexton cemetery records from Elsie, Michigan. The above picture of the Tillotson graves in Crete (Lot 41) was taken by my grand aunt Jennie May Tillotson Vandenberg around 1910. In 2008 Chuck King shot a corresponding photo which appears below.
