RE: Earl and Hannelore Catton
My grandma lived on Harvard in Peoria. Next door was my grandma's sister and next door to them was the Catton's. They were actually like family because I was always over there and they would come and sit and talk all the time at my aunt's and grandma's. When Lori (Hannelore) passed, I have her organ that was in the house. I am an organist for St Vincent de Paul in Peoria and I also play funerals at the Mausoleum. Springdale Cemetery was where Earl was entombed at first, however, poor management for years led to disrepair. The place was a mess. Howard, their son (now in the mausoleum also from a heart attack) decided to have his dad removed and both of them put in Res. Mausoleum. I am there all the time but I have never taken a picture. I will make it a point to take one for you soon. It isn't that far from my house. Mrs. Catton was a typical German, very immaculate in housekeeping. Mr. Catton loved to work on cars in his driveway. He made a sharp race car in the 60's but somebody actually stole the car and they never did find it. My mom's brother is only 5 years older than me and Howard and Mike, the boys were his closest friends growing up. I always got to tag along because I practically lived with my grandma.

Earl Catton
Earl Catton is not in Springdale Mausoleum. He is with his wife in Resurection Mausoleum in Peoria.
Please change this information. I have notified Find a Grave also because nobody will ever be able to find our family like this.

Earl was originally placed in Springdale, however, because of the disrepair of the place, he was moved when his wife died.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Cora May Canfield Guard (1872-1936)(Grave Memorial# 83756078) ... did you, by chance, notice her brother, Hugh Dunn Canfield (1878-1930; dp. Chicago, Cook Co., Illinois, USA), in the same cemetery (Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago, Cook Co., Illinois, USA)?

Do you know if #79299793 and #79318798 were married to each other? Is there a pic of the tombstone for either of them?

Barb, I'm sorry, but I mistakenly asked you to connect Albert Snell to Henry and Emeline Snell as his parents, This is an error on my part (Henry and Emeline are not his parents). I apologize for the inconvenience in advance, and appreciate your hard work at Find A Grave.
Thank you for all of your efforts, and patience.
