Civil War Union Veterans
Lacon, IL Cemetery

Contributed by Dave Dellinger,
Camp Commander of the Sons of Union Veteran of the Civil War, in Lacon, IL

Dave Writes: "I have been doing research in the Lacon Cemetery locating Civil War Veterans. There are 68 know government gravestones and 5 civilians buried here. I have located 51 others and have identified there military records and resting places. A notebook of these discoveries was donated to the Historical Society, Lacon Cemetery Association and Legion. The SUVCW would like to donate this update to you and encourage all to tour the cemetery and see the 119 grave sites of these veterans. I am attaching the listings of these 119 heroes in alphabetical order and numbered, then plotted on a map for easy location.  There is also research on the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) Post #134 of Lacon. This was a active organization in this community and help establish Old Settlers Day and held Big Bend Reunions all over the state. I've written two articles and published one in the Lacon Journal."
