This cemetery is listed on the Illinois State Genealogical records as JUBILEE GOD'S ACRE. In talking to the Superintendent of Jubilee College State Park on Saturday, October 11, 2003, ONLY residents of Jubilee Township can be interred within this cemetery. Originally, in the 1800's, the village of Jubilee sat South & West of this cemetery as well as the College/Prep School. Residents of the town were brought here to be buried.
The past neglect is still present
Jubilee Cemetery, like many other ancient burial
grounds, became uncared for and vandalized.
