TROY — The St. Jerome (Troy) and St. John the Baptist (Blackjack) cemetery board members are looking for contacts who have information about those buried at either or both of the cemeteries.
Many tombstones are missing or illegible, making cemetery record-keeping difficult, says cemetery board member Sharon Jackson. In other cases, descendants of those buried are unknown, she says.
Anyone who has information about those buried at St. Jerome Cemetery in Troy or St. John the Baptist Cemetery in Blackjack should please contact Sharon Jackson at (618) 667-0929 or or call the St. Jerome office at (618) 667-6571. Questions about the cemeteries can be addressed to her as well.
