Welcome To Illinois

In 1673 Louis Jolliet And Father Jacques Marquette Explored
The Illinois Country For France. By The 1763 Treaty Ending The
French And Indian War, This Area Passed To England. During The
American Revolution, George Rogers Clark's Men Captured It For
The Commonwealth Of Virginia. Illinois Was Later Governed As Part
Of The Northwest Territory, Indiana Territory, And The
Illinois Territory. In 1818, Illinois Entered The Union As The
Twenty-First State.

Permanent American Settlers Began Arriving At The State's
Southwestern Tip In 1805. Earthquakes Rocked The Mississippi Valley
In 1811 Bringing Refugees Here In Search Of New Homesites. After
The War Of 1812, Another Wave Of Settlers Came, Some Bringing
Slaves. The Newcomers Raised Cotton, Flax, And Tobacco. Later,
They Raised Corn And Wheat.

Northeast Of Here, At Jonesboro, Abraham Lincoln Debated
Stephen Douglas During The 1858 Senatorial Campaign. During The
Civil War, Cairo Served As A Major Staging Base Where Men And
Supplies Were Assembled Before Departing For The War Zones. Mound
City On The Ohio River Was The Principal Depot For The Western
River Fleet. Nearby Is Thebes, Once A Bustling River Port. The Town
Declined When Railroads Replaced The Steamboats, But The Beautiful
1848 Courthouse Still Stands. Nowadays, Touritsts And Hunters Are
Drawn To "Egypt" -- Illinois Sixteen Southernmost Counties - By
The Beauty Of The Shawnee Forest And Wildlife At Horseshoe Lake.

Erected By The Illinois Department Of Transportation

And The Illinois State Historical Society 1980

WE DO NOT DO RESEARCH, NOR DO WE BUY OR SELL CEMETERY PLOTS.

Many, many hours of counltess endless are involved in creating the pages for these websites and we all have our own research that we like to do in addition to jobs and families. We do try hard to get your information on line as quickly as we can.




The United States Cemetery Project is a fully non-profit genealogical web site. We are dedicated to providing free access to cemetery photos and obituaries for genealogical purposes. The United States Cemetery Project is staffed entirely by volunteers and we pay no wages or salaries. Every penny that you donate will be used to provide for the continuation of this web site.

The United States Cemetery Project is advertisement free and is entirely supported by contributions. Without the support of the general public, (visitors such as you), we would not be able to continue providing free online access.

Donations may be made through PayPal. Please refer to our home page.

Thank you for your support



Due to high volume of emails regarding linking up to already transcribed and/or photographed cemetery websites, we will no longer be accepting links to different websites.
