Ricahrd, surprisingly, the LDS in Utah is one place to turn to. Murphysboro
does not have a record of my great grandfather who died there. Yet, the LDS
in Utah has a copy of his death certificate.
Another source would be the Jackson County Historical Society. They try to
salvage records being thrown out or destroyed by the courthouse. They are
located in Murphysboro also.

Subject: [ILJACKSON] Murphysboro cemeteries 1894
Does anyone have information on active cemeteries that were in or very
Murphysboro other than Tower Grove and the adjacent Catholic (?)
1894? The City clerk's records do not reflect the burial of John
1844-1894 in either of these so where do I now turn?
Thanks, Richard in FL
