Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located in Norton Township.

Taken from the "History of Norton Township" booklet, a project of the Kankakee County Bicentennial Commission in 1976: "On September 22, 1897, a meeting was called to order by A. T. Anderson for the purpose of organizing a Cemetery Association to procure the Eldredgeville Cemetery Lot and to maintain and improve the same. Those present were George McNamee who was chosen chairman, J. W. Fleming, Theodore Wadleigh, C. L. Woods, Chris Christopher, and A. T. Anderson who was chosen to be the secretary. On Nov. 25, by-laws for the association were drafted and adopted. The Secretary was then instructed to see to the recording of the Certificate of Corporation and to see to the procuring of the deed from the county for the cemetery lot which was donated by Don Bush. Mr. Wm. Grimwood gave a beautiful curved metal sign with the name of the cemetery written with metal letters."
