Scott Cemetery
Scott Cemetery, Harmony Township, Hancock County, Illinois

This list is one made by Mrs. John fleming acting as a representative of the Illinois Society Daughters of the American Revolution (probably the Shadrach Bond Chapter of Carthage, Illinois).  It gives burials only prior to about July 1, 1877 in most cases.  July 1, 1877 state law providing for keeping a of Death Records in county courthouses within to effect.

It was assumed by the D.A.R. burials after that date could be checked on in county records.  This seems on sound procedure as many deaths might occur in other counties making an impractical statewide search necessary or even in other states with different that record arrangements.  But it was done that way by the D.A.R

This introduction was put on paper April 20, 1968 in the 192nd year of the independence of the United States.
