Although Booker T. Washington cemetery is in bad shape I have been involved with cataloging the graves since 2000. A copy of the original sexton records were copied and can be found in the East St. Louis and Belleville libraries. I am working with an organization to clean up and record these abandoned cemeteries. It takes a lot of volunteers, but it is a labor of love. The organization I am involved with is the Historic Cemetery Preservation Association. The website is http://hcpaosi.com
If you are interested in volunteering or even if you just want to see what we are doing please check out this website.
