Erie Cemetery History Project

Dedicated to those who created the community of Erie, Illinois 61250.

Welcome to the Erie Cemetery History Project. The project began in 1998 when a storm severely damaged our cemetery. A group called "Friends of the Cemetery" was formed to coordinate cemetery restoration. Erie won a Governor's Home Town Award because of this group's hard work.

This history project was by initiated by the "Friends." Members started gathering information. The group originally intended to publish a book, but the internet offers a better way of sharing information about Erie Cemetery and the people buried there.

This website owes much to the late Cliff Reisenbigler, whose book "Remembering Erie" has helped fill in some blanks.
