Who is buried in Allerton’s pioneer cemeteries?

Archaeologists from the Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS) are using a “3D structured light scanner in conjunction with archival data” to attempt to decipher the names and dates on the headstones in the two cemeteries. Early settlers from the mid to late 19th century are buried there. 

The ISAS is recording the process. You can check out their work in this video:
