March 20, 2014 note from Ace, "Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273. ...please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information ... also ask if there is a grave marker ... This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. ... Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here."

I emailed Elmwood March 21, 2014.
