Fulton Chamber of Commerce and the Illinois State Historical Society
Buried in this cemetery are President Ronald Reagan’s paternal Irish ancestors. His great-grandparents, Michael and Catherine Mulcahey Reagan, emigrated in 1856 and after Michael’s 1884 burial in Calvary Hill Cemetery (now part of Fulton Township Cemetery), Catherine and three children moved to Fulton. One son, John, married Jennie Cusick. Both died in their thirties and left four orphans, one of whom was Jack, the future president’s father. A total of 16 Reagan relatives are buried here.
In 1904, Jack married Nelle Wilson whose mother, Mary Anne Wilson, and two aunts are buried in the Fulton Township Cemetery near Third Avenue and Ninth Street.
