Bequeath Cemetery
Burial Listings

The following listings are taken from volume 2 of Tazewell County, Illinois, Cemeteries, copyright 1979, Tazewell County Genealogical & Historical Society.  These listings are taken from many sources - not just the tombstones themselves.

Thanks to a generous grant from Greg Preston of Salt Lake, Utah, we are in the process of adding images of all existing tombstones as of March 2004.  Those stones still existing will have a clickable link added.
