Lincoln Cemetery is a cemetery in Worth Township, Cook County, Illinois, United States. It was founded in 1911.[1] Although not within the municipal boundaries of the city, the cemetery maintains a Chicago address at 12300 South Kedzie Avenue, sharing its zip code with the city's Mount Greenwood neighborhood whose southern border lies a mile north of the cemetery gate.[2] The cemetery is noteworthy for the number of famous African-American Chicagoans buried there, among them several notable blues and jazz musicians.
