St John Lutheran Church Cemetery

          In the early 1850's a private church cemetery was established for Saint John Lutheran Church, Elk Grove (now Mount Prospect). Many of the early founders of Mt Prospect, those illustrious persons after whom Village streets, etc. have been named, are interred in our cemetery

 

           An ongoing listing of those interred along with a picture of their headstone as well as biographical information (if available) can be viewed on the website "Find A Grave".
