** Note: In the past, McDonough Village Union Cemetery placed remains in their vault until they could be removed to their final resting places. This is noted in the official records. The cemetery Sexton was also responsible for other cemeteries in town, so all records were kept in one master file. Some had this information with their burial information and some didn't. We have been researching for almost four years and verifying the information with the other cemeteries as well as county historian, obituaries and other info. We have walked and photographed the entire cemetery. We have put a lot of time and effort into researching these records. Nothing is added or changed until it can be verified and approved through the Sexton. There are still mistakes included on Find A Grave that haven't been changed(working on those with the help of the admin of Find A Grave), and some will probably never be able to be verified. We have done our best to make sure these burials are as correct as possible. We have shared a lot of this factual information with the creators of these memorials, including plot numbers, obituaries and other information from news articles as well as past historians of the town and family documents. We have emails as proof. We are leaving a candle on those memorials that have been confirmed as being buried in Union and that we have found burial information for such as an obit, death announcement, confirmation with historian, etc. We have well over 1,000 obituaries, death announcements, burial announcements and newspaper articles about the ones interred in Union. They have been put together in a book that will be part of the history records for Union. We are still working on these records as of March 24,2016.It is not our intention to get into a quarrel with anyone. We are making sure the burial records for this cemetery reflect the correct information only.Please note if you have a question about any of the interments included in this cemetery, contact the Sexton or Vice President/Treasurer of the current cemetery board as they are the ones updating the records. Email address is included on the official website for Union(link can be found on the main page for this cemetery here on Find A Grave.) Thank you to those contributors who have sent us information to be added to the history books for the cemetery. It is greatly appreciated. You generosity will be mentioned in the book.
