Greenhill Cemetery
aka Platt cemetery in some records

Greenhill cemetery - photo by Phyllis Peterson

Recorded by Phyllis Peterson, October 2004

Sec. 22, SE/SW
Lodomillo twp.

To reach Greenhill cemetery, take Hwy 3 west from Edgewood. Turn north on the Littleport Rd (X-21) continuing on to Essex Ave. Turn on Essex Ave. following nearly to where it dead-ends at farm outbuildings. The road to the cemetery may or may not be marked, but is on the right. Follow it to the cemetery.


Source: personal recording of burials by Phyllis, who walked the cemetery in October 2004, supplemented with existing WPA cemetery records due to some older illegible stones. Notes: All the names and dates on this list are exactly as read off the stones.  I added the lot numbers from the WPA listing and added my own comments.

Note: this list will be updated whenever possible, adding new burials or more complete dates (Clayton co. coordinator)
