St. Francis Xavier Cemetery, Jerseyville

Thanks to Bill Gorry! Note: not a complete inventory. From Bill: “These are some of the headstones that were taken July 2000 at St. Francis Xaiver Cemetery in Jerseyville. Hopefully we will eventually be able to photograph all the cemetery. This is in the second entrance to the cemetery where there are some old stones. We found the Gorry headstone last year, there are three entrances to the cemetery. The first is another older section, second is some of the stone, and then the main gate with current burials. I hope that this may help some one find out some information. We were not able to do the whole section this time due to lack of time.”

Bill Gorry is currently seeking surnames from Jerseyville area GORRY, CUNNINGHAM, RHOADY, ANDERSON. FITZPATRICK headstones from Bob Fitzpatrick, [email protected]
