Theo S Gravenhorst
Thanks for the links to Theodore S Gravenhorst parents and Edward H. Gravenhorst's wife.

Do you know where Edward H. Gravenhorst is buried?

Just curious are you related to the Gravenhorst family?

RE: Joseph Photos
You are very welcome! Once I saw Maynard listed at Greenwood and the office said he wasn't there, I had to find him! His obituary is what led me to Glen Abbey, then their office came back with Brian Maynard -- another Joseph found!
I'm happy to look around anytime =)

RE: Joseph Photos
Alright, Maynard is at Glen Abbey with his wife Ethel. I created a memorial for her -- 125355346

They are next to a Brian Maynard Joseph -- his memorial is 125354342

And I sent a "Suggest a Correction" to Linda (the volunteer who created Maynard's memorial page) and asked her to change his location to Glen Abbey.


Anyone else?

The reason I have not officially claimed your Frank Loretta request is because I reached the Find A Grave-imposed limit of 21 open at one time ... yours would have been my 22nd. I'll take his site's photo anyway and chances are I'll be able to claim/upload it before anyone else does!

RE: Frank Loretta
You're welcome, Russ.
There certainly are exceptions but when two or more names are inscribed on a grave marker, the persons are all recorded in the Holy Cross data base, which is available online to anyone. (And there are just the 3 Lorettas that I mentioned.) I use it when I claim any request to find the exact burial site. It covers interments from 1887-2002; 2003-current have not been entered yet. To get to the d.b., just go to; click San Mateo County; click Cemeteries; click Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery, Colma; click online data base. Holler if you need help maneuvering through it.

Hi Russ,

I transferred the requested record to you. As far as a marker photo, I do not have one. However, now that I have walked the entire cemetery and uploaded everything I have, I am now re-walking to get markers I may have missed or were illegible due to grime on the marker. I am actually working in Public Lot 2 now. I added about 15 markers that I cleaned yesterday and was able to add to records but still have a small part of this section to finish. So many in the public lots are not marked but I will search and let you know for sure!

RE: Hotz Photos
How does the picture of Charles look? Also, I talked to Peanuts on the 2nd and she said she has been pretty ill lately. She thinks she is on the mend.

Take Care,

RE: Eliza Hediger
Hi Russ,

I went out to the cemetery today, located Block 1, Lot 44, Space 3 where Eliza Hediger is buried, according to the Highland City Cemetery Database. Unfortunately, there is no gravestone at her grave. Her daughter Alice, is buried in Space 2 and has a grave stone. I took a photo of the area so you can see where she is buried, and I can email it to you if you wish. Then you can decide whether to post the photo or not. I will leave it up to you. How sad.

Linda A Foote-Martin
Your Hall Photo Request at Gullick Cemetery in IL
Hi, This is Linda A Foote-Martin,
Is it possible that the name on the headstone is Hull instead of Hall? Gullick Cemetery in IL is full of HULL's - I was not able to find HALL's.

RE: Gneadinger Photo
Hi Russ...I checked for Lucy but no luck. The database at the cemetery has all the Chicago Archdiocese cemeteries but I couldn't find her. I went back to John's gravesite to see if anyone named Lucy was buried near him but that didn't pan out either. Sorry.

RE: Emil Kempff
I added the obituary I had for Emily. I am curious about the obituary you have for her. Is it the same as the one I posted on her memorial? She was the niece of my grandmother, Dora Rice Ashworth. Are you related to Emil Kempff or Lena Rice Kempff? Thanks, Mary Jackson

Hi, I linked his parents to his memorial as you requested. I have an obituary for little Emily that I would like to add to her memorial. Would that be alright with you? In the obituary her name is Bailey Emily Kempff. Mary Jackson

RE: Photos
If you have more requests for Robinson, Camp Ground, File, Tobias File, Hastings, Hazel Dell, Montrose, Mount Nebo (New and Old)Smith Grove, Snow, Union Grove, Wade, or Zion Church you can email me at posted address. Can't guarantee all requests but the stones I have been able to decipher I'll be glad to post for you.
With a name like Marti I'm guessing you are from Bond Co. area also.

John Gullick Jr.

Was John Gullick's grave actually found in the Gullick Cemetery?


John Gullick Jr.
Revolutionary War Non Military Patriot Buried in Madison County, Illinois
(This patriot was not a soldier but one
who supported the cause of the American Revolution)
Name: Gullick Jr., John (abt.1750-1831)
Personal Information:
Born: abt.1750 in Tyron Co., NC
Family: Son of John Gullick Sr. and his wife Elizabeth.
He first married Rebecca Davidson in Lincoln Co., NC by 1775. John
married a second time to Hannah Ramsey.
Death: March 15, 1832 in Madison Co., IL
Service Record: Supplied sundries to the NC militia
Burial: Gullick Cemetery off Leroy Highland. The Genl George Rogers Clark Chapter of
the SAR honored him in 1988.
GPS coordinates: N 38 degrees 40.765'; W 090 degrees 37.130'
Narrative: John raised his family in that part of North Carolina which became Lincoln Co.
John and brother, Jonathon, were patriots as was their father and gave valuable aid by supplying
sundries to the militia.
Before the coming of the Swiss, it is claimed that the first white settlers to locate any
place near the present site of Highland came from Kentucky and North Carolina in 1804 and
settled in the southeast part of Helvetia Tp. It was about this time when the Gullicks with other
old settlers arrived. Many of the old settlers are buried in the old section of this cemetery settled
in what was known as Sugar Creek Neighborhood and attended the Sugar Creek Presbyterian
Church. They all settled south and east of Highland. They did not at first buy land, but they
"squatted" at any place that suited them. A dozen years later after Illinois became a state, many
had secured title to the same tracts on which they "squatted" and made improvements.
Unscrupulous land dealers knew of these conditions and took advantage of the situation. They
would purchase from the government, for $1.25 an acre, a quarter of a half section on which they
knew were improvements had been made and then force the settlers who had made the
improvements either to pay them $4 or $5 per acre, or give up the possession. Rather than lose
all the improvements they had made, the settlers in many instances complied with the demands
of the land dealers. About a quarter of a mile from the present site of the cemetery, in plain view,
a choice location for a farm, the Pioneer Homestead of John Gullick, Jr. lies.

RE: Marcellus Nagel
Russ, Fountain Park Cemetery is located in Winchester, Indiana. Ridgeville is just north of there, not very far. I will check with the cemeteries in Ridgeville & see if I can find where Marcellus was buried. Do you have the name of a funeral home that might have been in the obit? Judy
