Kellogg Cemetery

Scott County, Illinois

Several tombstones protected by a fence formerly indicated the site of Kellogg Cemetery in Section 25 of Township 15 N Range 12 W. The location is in Scott County, barely outside the limits of Morgan County and only a very short distance northwest of Rocky Branch (Campbell) Cemetery which borders on the Scott-Morgan County line. The area of Kellogg Cemetery was once laid out as the village of Geneva but it failed to materialize. Some years ago the tombstone listed below was found in a branch in the timber on the Gordon farm. Persons interested in the very early Kelloggs of this area will find numerous references to the family. A reference that shouldn't be overlooked is housed in the Jacksonville Public Library. It was authored by Frank J. Heinl and is Call Number JR 977346 J16 Copy 1. Starting on page 76 is a chapter entitled "The First Settlers In Morgan County. The Kelloggs and Charles Collins."
