Jesse Dailey Cemetery
Coe Township

The Jesse Dailey Cemetery in Coe Township lists 23 people buried between 1840 and 1907.

The Jesse Dailey Cemetery is located in Coe Township, Rock Island County, Illinois at or near the northwest corner of the southwest quarter of Section 5 of Township 19 North and Range 2 East. It is on a wooded knoll on the east side of the Boardman road, called County Road R, one mile north of the intersection of County Roads R and CC and slightly more than a mile south of the intersection of County Roads R and BB. County Road R has now been designated 228th Street North, CC is 129th Avenue North, and BB is 157th Avenue North. BB runs westward to Cordova, Illinois.

On Sunday, September 29 1968, Newell H. Dailey and Hubert A. Dailey visited the cemetery and copied the inscriptions from all the eighteen main stones and numerous headstones and footstones which could be discovered in the course of a diligent search. Unusual names and spellings (e.g. Russel, Hubard, Haraiet, etc.) were carefully recorded.

On Thursday, October 9, 1975, Newell Dailey again visited the cemetery and found it thickly covered with trees and underbrush and vandals had overturned, broken or otherwise damaged all of the grave markers except the massive granite monument of Jesse and Maggie Dailey and the marble slabs of Edward Dailey, Austin C. and Walter B. Dailey and Clarence Brown.

In this listing is alphabetical listing of 23 persons who were buried in the cemetery between 1840 when there was apparently a double tragedy in the Hugh Dailey family and 1907 when Sarah Eggleston was laid to rest beside her husband, who died 17 years before. There is no evidence of any burials since 1907.
