Found John Landers(unfortunately, most likely not my 3G-Grandfather) in your virtual cemetery. Your narrative made me curious, which led to the website for the current version of this union:
They may not know of this section in the cemetery and they may have more info for you.

I have a hunch that Fred was a son of Julius William & Augusta Roggentin Dreyer; the husband of Lucille McManus & the father of Phyllis Dreyer Shipp & Wayne E Dreyer. Can you confirm this info? If you can, I will add it to the memorial. Lucille's mother was Olive Steenbergen, one of my cousins.

|Phil Roos||William A Foust|
William Alonzo Foust's tombstone gives a death date in 1935, yet he is still listed in the 1940 Census. The 1940 census still shows him with his wife Norma and still working as a movie censor. Any thoughts?

Hi, My name is Kaylie. My father, Brad Edward Conard passed away when I was a very small child. I have saw there were a few pictures of his grave. I have only seen it one time and that was when I was 16 years old. I was wondering if you could get closer pictures of the three pictures on his head stone? There is already one up close picture but I wanted to see what were int he other two pictures on there.

OAK RIDGE CEMETERY
Hi Sixth Sense,
I wrote you about a year ago; you offered to take a photo of my ancestor, FLORENCE ELIZABETH BRADLEY born 6/19/1860 died 2/27/1928. This below was my message to you, were you ever able to get a photo? Thanks for everything that you do! Bless your heart
She is buried at the Oak Ridge Cemetery located at 4301 West Roosevelt Road, Hillside, Illinois. She is buried in Section 2, Lot #317. I don't know if her husband, CHARLES FRANK BRADLEY born abt. 1860 is buried there or not. But, she is! Yea! You say that you talk to dead people? Indeed, so do I. Every time that I go to a cemetery, I ask them to let me know where they are located, so I can stop by and say hello. Within the first row or two that I meander into, there they are! They guide us, they want us to know where they are and who they were. Thank you so much. Eilene

I have your book White Bronze. I believe that you are going to publish another White Bronze of Kane County.
Any information that you are able to give me will be greatly appreciated.
I have really enjoyed your book so much. I am now a White Bronze hunter.

|Eilene Harkless Moore||RE: ILLINOIS GRAVESTONES|
Hello, I appreciate your efforts to get a photo of this gravestone. Have you been able to visit Oak Ridge Cemetery in Cook Co., IL and determine if FLORENCE ELIZABETH BRADLEY born 6/1860 died 1928 and her husband, CHARLES FRANK BRADLEY b. abt. 1860 died? are buried there as you hoped to do?
Thank you so much for all that you do!

Your response to my query about Oak Ridge Cemetery:
"My family is buried in Glen Oak-Oak Ridge in Hillside. The next time I go there I will stop in the office and see if your family is there. If so I will get pics & do an entry for you (and then "turn it over" to you)."

|Eilene Harkless Moore||ILLINOIS GRAVESTONES|
I was looking at the many contributions to FindAGrave. Thank you so much. I have been doing family history and graveyard research for over 35 years, geesh, since high school. I am looking for the gravestone of the sister of my gr-grandfather. Her name was Florence Elizabeth Harkless and she married a Charles Frank Bradley. (Sometimes their first and middle names are reversed). They moved to Illinois. I have located her death certificate and it says:
FLORENCE ELIZABETH BRADLEY;
DEATH DATE: 27 Feb. 1928;
PLACE: Chicago, Cook, Illinois
BIRTH DATE: 23 JUN 1860
BIRTHPLACE: Nelsonville, Ohio
SPOUSE: CHARLES F. BRADLEY
BURIAL PLACE: OAK RIDGE
My question is, apparently, there are several OAK RIDGE CEMETERIES in Illinois.
There is an Oak Ridge Cemetery in Lansing, IL AND there is an Oak Ridge-Glen Oak Cemetery in Hillside, Cook Co., IL. I have looked online to see if Charles Bradley (who I don't have the birth/death dates for) and/or Florence Elizabeth Bradley are buried at either of these cemeteries but I have not been successful in locating their gravestones. I feel like the stones are the most important item that you can locate in genealogy; it is the; it is where they are; the only physical evidence that remains of them. I see you have accomplished so much with FindAGrave. I thought, perhaps that you might have an understanding of which cemetery the death record is referring to. Your thoughts please? firstname.lastname@example.org and thanks so much, Eilene Harkless Moore

I just wanted to thank you for posting my g-g grandfather's grave on this website. It is so kind of you to help others just for the sake of helping. The world needs more people like you. I just added a photo of g-g grandpa John, whose full name was John Abbott Independence Lee, if you would like to see what he looked like. I'm sure they couldn't fit his full name on his tombstone. :o) Thanks again.

Searching for Ernest Julius Neitz, my grandfather. Ernest died July 08, 1959 in Chicago, Cook County. He is supposedly buried in Union Ridge Cemetery, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. Can you help in finding grave and photo it?

just wanted to let you know I just read your book White Bronze. Glad to see someone else is as interested in zinc markers. I look for them whenever I am in a cemetery. I have found close to 100. this seems like an interesting site, looking foward to exploring it.

Hi 6th Sense, I used to walk past Union Ridge in Chicago every day on the way to my high school.
There are many fine zinc monuments in cemeteries near New York City. I have some fotos if you have an interest.
