The Scott-Magill Cemetery is located about two miles east of the east end of Lake Mauvais Terre in the southeast quarter of Section 25, Township 15N, Range 10W. The cemetery was deeded to Morgan County by William Scott, a veteran of the War of 1812, on August 24, 1839. The cemetery includes the graves of James Magill, veteran of the Revolutionary War, and also veterans of the War of 1812, and Civil War. The earliest burial appears to be that of Mary Eakin Magill who died July 8, 1830, with several other burials in the 1830's. This list is compiled from four previous lists and additional research, but may not be totally accurate or complete due to the discrepancies between records and also because of the unkept condition of the cemetery.
