Lindenau & Fredericks Families
I can't omg..thankyou so so so much, I never ever imagined the photo requests would get answered, there's so many people requesting stuff and I just never I cant tell you how much this means to our family, we are truly and immensely grateful to you. Most of the family has scattered across the states and no one is close enough to go and take the pictures. Hazel and her husband charles are my great grandparents, and augusta is the female head of the fredericks family, and all those lindeneau pictures you took!

I'm so amazed and there just are not words for how much thanks i can give you. You even found Anna Mathilda and Eric Sigurd! I've been searching for them and ta da! they were buried next to spouses and now of the records even said that. I'm so thankfull really I am, I made pages for both Anna Mathilda, wife of Eric Lindeneau and I made a page for Eric Sigurd, husband of Isabell, so if you could put in the photos of the graves I'd appreciate it.

Again, Pamela I cant thank you enough for the wonderful thing you have done here today.

From the bottom of my heart, you have the eternal thanks from the Fredericks & Lindeneau Families

Quote Your Information Request

As an artist, I wish to present my loved ones memorials as stories that paint a picture of both themselves and their burial day.

May I please use the following information of yours on my 2 Christensen ancestors memorials for Mount Olive in Chicago?

"Established in 1889, Mount Olive Cemetery was first known as a Scandinavian cemetery. One of the more distinct features of Mount Olive Cemetery is the Archway at the main cemetery entrance. It is one of a few cemeteries to have a bell in the tower that is rung as each interment procession arrives through the Archway." -Pamela Larson

RE: Mount Olive Cemetery
Thank you so much. Just curious, on Ragnhild Egebak Christensen's memorial I have only added 3 photos. You might try again please. Thank you.

Also, I have the plot numbers for both graves listed on the memorials. I acquired those yesterday.

They also sent me a map showing the location of each. Would you like me to email that map to you.

Many, many thanks.

Mount Olive Cemetery
Hello There,

I, too, have ancestors in Mount Olive Cemetery. I just learned this yesterday. We are of Danish decent. I have created memorials for my 2 loved ones.

I would be honored if you would attach your photo and caption of the "Viking Water Fountain at Mount Olive in Chicago" to my ancestors memorials. I love it.

Christian Peter Christensen #141987059
Ragnhild Egebak Christensen #141988948.

Lastly, I did submit photo requests for the above mentioned memorials. I see you are willing to photograph Mount Olive too, so I will mention to you also that I am looking to obtain photos of these graves. Might have to wait for the snow to melt, huh?

Kathryn Hanson
I see you set up and took a picture of the headstone on this memorial. I am trying to locate Paul H Hanson born 1898 in Kansas and had moved to Illinois. I did find he had married a Kathryn but not sure what her name was before the marriage.
The memorial for Kathryn is #94776333 and I was wondering if when you set it up you might have had more info on her that you can give me to see if she is the wife of Paul Hanson.
Thanks in advance

Riiser Graves
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the Riiser graves. They were my great-great-grandparents. One of their two sons changed his name to it is interesting that he must have decided to put his re-imagined name as theirs on the headstone.

I live in California. Thank you for being my legs and eyes in Chicago~ It is a wonderful gift!

Alma Malmstrom
I would like to thank you for taking pictures of my great-grandmothers grave. Alma Malmstrom, she is buried with her first husband Leopald Stern. I am in a major search for anything about her and she seems to be a mystery. I did find a two story brick home that her and Leopald shared with their children in the late 1800s and it still stands in Chicago. Again, thank you! Not sure why you took it, but if you had a request to take it, wish I knew from whom.

My great-grandparents
Dear Pamela,
What a wonderful surprise to find that you posted pictures of my great-grandparents' headstones, Thank you so much!
They were Ferdinand Christophersen Hannibal and Anna Marie Engedahl Hannibal. Ralph Norbert Jones was one of their grandsons.
There are some other family members buried in Mt. Olive as well. I will try to add them when I get a chance to visit Chicago.
Thanks again.
