City of Mattoon
Cemetery Deed Records
for Dodge Grove Cemetery
1887-1897


These are the actual cemetery deeds and were signed by both the mayor and city clerk of Mattoon through the years. The deeds are a printed form that has blanks to fill in (see below for the wording of the deed) The individual's name is hand written 4 times within the document, so this has helped for accuracy in transcribing. Names are occasionally spelled differently within the same document, which I have tried to note whenever that has occurred. As with all online or printed transcriptions, you are advised to check the original records for yourself. This microfilm can be ordered through HeritageQuest.com, roll number V141-85
