Will County Cemeteries

Note from Kathy Zavada: If a researcher is looking for deaths through obits in and around Wilmington (namely Jackson, Florence, Wilton, Wesley, Reed, or sometimes Manhattan and Peotone townships) they should contact the Wilmington Public Library which has indexed obits starting from mid 1860's to current which match the microfilmed Wilmington Newspapers. Wilmington has the earliest local newspapers for these areas and still is the only library for Jackson, Florence and Wesley.

Wilmington Public Library, 201 Kankakee St, Wilmington, IL 60481; 815-476-2834
