Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery is located on the south side of Parley Street two miles east of Highway 96 (Durphy Street) in Nauvoo. Most of the Saints who died in Nauvoo are buried here. Some of those buried in the Durphy Street Cemetery were moved here as a result of closing that cemetery.

The cemetery was maintained from the 1860ís to 1989 by the Reorganized Church of Latter-day Saints (Community of Christ). In 1989 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints acquired the grounds and rededicated the cemetery on October 7, 1989. Over the years the cemetery has been known as the Marks Cemetery, Miller Hill Cemetery, Old Mormon Cemetery, Parley Street Cemetery, Pioneer Burial Grounds, Pioneer Cemetery, Pioneer Saints Cemetery and Old Pioneer Cemetery.

To memorialize many of those early Saints for whom no marker exists, a kiosk at the cemetery includes the names of many who died in Nauvoo.

Only 119 readable markers.
