Site of The Original

 HOLY CROSS LUTHERAN CEMETERY

At Saint Joe, Illinois

Established 1853 Monroe County, Illinois

Photographed and Submitted by Mary Limpert

 

This is an incomplete listing of the graves in this original cemetery site.  The cemetery is overgrown with weeds, and many stones are overturned and broken. Many stones are badly weathered and unreadable.

The St. Joe Holy Cross Cemetery has been restored by Roger & Elaine Toenjes. Note by Elaine the cemetery is in great shape now as we fixed all the tombstones and we probed and found many new tombstones.  I took pictures of the cemetery and all the tombstones and recorded all the information from them.  

The following photos show the condition of the cemetery and stones before the restoration began.  Also I will add the new photos to each of those already listed so again you can see the repairs.

The Following two photos show cemetery after restoration was completed.
