Keck Memorial Cemetery
Oswego, Kendall County, Illinois

Lat: 41° 43' 19"N, Lat: 88° 22' 45"W
Bristol Twp, T1S R7E Section 1

Contributed by Selina Brown, Aug 18, 2008, last edited Aug 30, 2008 [padges7@aol.com]. Total records = 84.

To reach this cemetery drive north out of Oswego on one of several roads, turn left or west onto US Hwy 30 and continue till you see Orchard Road on your right. This cemetery sits on the south side of Rte 30 just west of the intersection of Rte 30 and Orchard Road, just inside the Kendall County line.

Keck Memorial Cemetery is no longer in use and appears to be neglected. I believe the last burial that I can find a marker for was in 1936. The cemetery is now surrounded by new developments on 3 sides.

There are a couple of piles of broken headstones that I have no way of knowing who they are for or what grave they belong on. The stones that I have listed as broken are stones that are actually in place but broken. If there is a question mark in the date or the name that is to signify that I am not 100% certain about the letter or number. If I have a question mark at the end of a name or date that is to signify that it is my best guess.

I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 11, 2008 and have listed all of the stones to the best of my ability.
