MARSH CEMETERY - EST 1856

Rockford Township, Winnebago County, Illinois

Marsh Cemetery is located on the north side of Spring Creek Road [about the 4000 block], 1/4 mile west of Alpine Road, atop a hill. It was informally established at the back end of a farm located off Alpine Road. The cemetery was in the area where currently Dorset Drive turns into Eaton. There are minutes from the cemetery board meeting dating as far back as 1856. However, there are earlier deaths in the cemetery, having been moved from area farms after the cemetery was established. The earliest recorded death is an infant who died in March of 1838. There are upwards of 100 burials recorded in Marsh Cemetery. Drive through the outer edge of the cemetery or park at the bottom and walk. It is chained and secured at both the entrance and the exit.

Surnames in Marsh Cemetery - This list includes all the surnames [that are still readable as of August 2007] from the stones in Marsh Cemetery. There were approximately 12 unreadable stones and probably a few that no longer exist or were buried deep in the ground or under the spikey plants [although I looked thoroughly]. - Connie Eccles, www.CEO of ComPortOne.com
