These 5 loose-leaf pages of cemetery transcription were found while I was browsing through a folder of newspaper clippings in the Batavia Library, Kane county, IL. They don't appear to have been published. There are penciled-in additions/corrections that have been made to the original transcription, but it is unclear as to who made those additions. I will put them in [ ] to differentiate them from the original transcription which used ( ) to make his comments. My comments/questions will be in
italics.
