Section M - Carlyle City Cemetery

Carlyle Illinois

Current as of 31 December 2002

The first 20 graves, all eight rows, in Section M are the original African American cemetery and are in a tree-shaded area. Known original plot owners are included for those graves without visible markers. The original records for this section also burned. It is the general opinion that like Sections A, F & G, that most spaces are occupied, and that there were wooden markers that have since deteriorated.

This is a combination of the Frerker, Zieren-Day and City Association versions of the plat maps, plus the reading of the stones. As with the other older sections, the stones are not in perfect rows. We have included only the information from the tomb stones themselves for the newer section, which begins at grave 21, and opened in July 1984.

The Cemetery Record listed another eleven people as being buried in this Section but it does say which grave they are in. Those people are: Boland, Harrington, 4 Killion, Mitchell, Morrison, and 3 Young. Additional family members might be identified in our Section Z, people with no hints where they were buried within the entire cemetery.


A # number sign means the information came from one of the plat maps or the Cemetery Record. There is no visible readable marker there.

The red numbers in the lower right grave of each lot are the lot numbers.
