Good afternoon Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request. Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at just Forest Home that had the grave location information provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have victoriously concluded 900 photo missions with 150 triumphs already in 2014.

Reminder for D. C. Freeman
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Berry C Ely
Hi Kathleen,
Wondered if you might make these additions to Berry Clent Ely's memorial page. He was the son of Docky Pyett Ely # 35445577 and Valerie Carrie Meador(s) Ely # 46749748. His sister Peal Ely Tong Samples is listed as # 60531475, brother Herod M Ely # 32601282. Herod is mentioned in the obituary posted by Ralph Terry on Berry's memorial Page. He also had a sister, Barnettie Ely, whose grave has not been found and two other brothers not mentioned above, Clarence George Ely and Raleigh Walter Ely. You can verify this information by checking the 1900, 1910 census. Dock Ely remarried before 1910 as his wife died in 1904, but his 6 children plus children by his second wife are living with him
in the 1910 census. There are step brothers and sisters that I will not mention at this time as I have not researched them thoroughly. I am related through the Meador line of Berry's mother's family.

Grave Marker #21686970

I'm curious about the info attached to Pauline Greenhood Jacob's grave - about her parents. Are you a descendant too? Pauline had a sister Rachel and she was my great-grandmother.

Hello, Kathleen,
In an effort to winnow down the number of Find-a-Grave photo requests in my area, I am asking for your help.
Forest Home cemetery limits the amount of information it will dole out to one person--and they've pretty much let me know I've reached my lifetime limit. If you can contact their office for the plot location of the photos you're requesting, it will speed along the process of your getting photographs.
Here is the contact info:
Phone: (708) 366-1900; fax: (708) 366-1921
One last thing: PLEASE ask if there is a headstone.
--Debbie B.

Daniel Geist
Dear Kathleen - I visited Trinity Lutheran Church Library today in Lancaster, PA to see what I could find about the 5 photo requests for its church yard. The original church yard across the street from the church was built over to erect a Parish House - it is a large, beautiful Colonial building. The staff there said some graves were moved, but not many, and that the building took places MANY decades ago. I researched birth, baptism, marriage and burial records and couldn't find anything on Daniel or George Geist, or Susanna Wolfe, or Elisabeth Tuffts. It might be that your people were moved elsewhere in the area? Just wanted to update you on the status of the "church yard" that is under the Parish House at this church. All best, Ann M. Carter

Austin Beasley
There is another Mossy Grove Cemetery listed in Dale County with Austin Beasley listed. Photos and bio are also there. If this is the person you were looking for, you might want to contact findagrave and remove your cemetery as a duplicate. Good luck.

Caroline/Emil Beyel
If you'd be willing to contact St. Michaels Cemetery in Queens, NY (718-278-3240) and get locations for your requests, I'd be happy to fulfill them for you. St. Mike's is walking distance from my apt, so it's no problem for me. But I've been out there so often now, they're starting to wonder how I can be related to all these people I ask about. The Catholic cemeteries in this area are always happy to give the info to a family member (which is, I guess, how it should be). You can either public message me about the location or post them to your requests. I always check before I head out. Thanks.

Mccoy Pleasant Grove Cemetery
Hi there,

You had a photo request for George W. Mccoy. There was also a headstone for Caroline Mccoy next to Geo. I have added a memorial for Caroline and uploaded the picture in Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

I will be in Saint Michaels Cemetery this week. Would you please call Calvary Cemetery (718-278-3240) and get the grave location. I would be more than happy to photograph the headstone of Emil Beyel. Please get back to me with this info.

Thanking you in advance.

Photo Request Note:

As a volunteer headstone photographer, may I ask for the future, that you please include the grave location in all of your photo requests. I have noticed after reviewing numerous photo requests, that only those who have the grave locations entered are being honored. All others without grave locations are being ignored. Thought you would like to be made aware of this.
