Bott Cemetery, Jersey County
Located a little over a mile south of Brighton just off Rt. 111 & 67.
Cemetery is in Jersey County but near enough to Brighton Macoupin County IL that many Brighton people were buried in Bott Cemetery.
Donated by Rick Doty, Becky Jo Gross Moore
"The cemetery is well maintained."
"The Huber Farm adjoined the land of the cemetery at one time (or close). My relative Patty Schetter still lives in the old homestead place (house still there and liveable). It's 3 miles outside Brighton - they had a pig farm for a long time." Becky
