Charles Deering was a Chicago businessman, art collector, and philanthropist. His parents were William Deering (1826-1913, buried in this cemetery lot) and Abby Reed Barbour Deering (died 1856, no findagrave listing). After eight years of service in the U.S. Navy, he became an executive of the Deering Harvester Company, a predecessor of the International Harvester Company, founded by his father. In his later years, he was a prominent artist collector and art patron. There is much biographical information about him and the Deering family available on Wikipedia and other web sites. He and his family were major contributors to the Deering Library at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois.
Charles Deering's first wife was Ana Rogers Case (died 1876 shortly after giving birth to their only child, no findagrave listing). Their only child was Charles William Case Deering (1876-1924, buried in this cemetery lot).
Charles Deering's second wife was Marion Whipple Deering (1857-1943, buried in this cemetery lot). They had three children: Roger Deering (1884-1936, buried in this cemetery lot); Marion Deering McCormick (1886-1965, buried in the adjacent McCormick lot in this cemetery with her husband Chauncey McCormick); and Barbara Deering Danielson (1888-1982), no findagrave listings for her or her husband Richard Ely Danielson (1885-1975).
