Cemetery bordered by Cedar St. and [Winnebago] St. – 1844-1851

The 1844 – 1851? Plat Map of Rockford shows the Cemetery that was at Cedar St. (north side), Winnebago St. (today) on East Side, with train tracks running through the width West-East of the Cemetery.  As the city grew, and the number of trains increased, the land was needed for train tracks and the bodies buried were moved to The West Side Cemetery, now called Greenwood Cemetery.

The plat map is in archival mylar sleeve with flat paper maps.
