South Elgin Cemetery
This information was compiled from the actual cemetery log. In some cases a nickname may have been recorded - not necessarily the legal name of the deceased. In many cases, medical terminology is outdated - and is no longer recorded in the records of the Village. So during your research, information which may appear missing - in actuality, was not recorded at the time of burial.
