Veteran Burials in Jersey County
Cemetery Listings of all known burials. Click on appropriate letter for your surname below. This listing was contributed by Marty Crull who searched for all known Veterans, using the Illinois Veterans Commission Report of 1956, cemetery records, contacts with families and onsite research at various cemeteries. There are burials listed as late as the 1990’s and is a invaluable tool for research as well as a “Memorial” to all those who so unselfishly gave their all for their country. Also listed are those who have submitted information on their veteran. If anyone has any information on other known veterans from Jersey County, that is documented, and can be added to this listing, please send. Click here for email address. As in any projects of this size, errors can be made and should be brought to our attention.
