Edford Township Cemetery

Established c.1856

Prior to 1955, it is said that one of the sextons burned the cemetery's records after his wife got tired of dusting them

This listing was originally made by Ben Frels and William Bismark for the "Bicentennial Listing of Cemeteries in Henry County" and was contributed to the Rock Island Genealogy Society's Quarterly publication by Mrs. Donald Johnson of Geneseo.

This is not a complete list - a whole page of burials did not come out well enough for me to transcribe. :-(
This is a transcription of a transcription - therefore it is very important that you only use this as a starting point in your research.
You should always verify all transcriptions against the original source (i.e. the headstone)
