RE: Anna Raddatz Andree
The Illinois Deaths & Stillbirths Index never lists cremations.

The information I gave you concerning his cremation is from the original cemetery records when she died in 1925. There is the possibility that she was buried at Forest Home at a later date, but without a date, it would be nearly impossible to look up the burial location.

For example, if we knew her cremated remains were buried in May 1950, that can be looked up.

Just in case, you may still want to contact the cemetery. I can only look things up by the original burial date. I have no way to search an individual name like the cemetery. If the cremains were later interred, I cannot see that information.

If you have an actual interment date I may be able to look up the information. The information I sent earlier is based off of her cremation date. Ace

Hi, I don't know what your relationship is to Cora Knox Austin is but yesterday when I was at Lone Mountain cemetery taking pictures I found that Cora has a temporary paper grave maker on her grave. It's actually amazing it has lasted this long. I thought perhaps someone in the family should be contacted about eventually replacing it with a permanent marker if at all possible. Thanks, Melinda

Mary Dempster
Hi - I came across your contact info while looking up Mary Dempster from Ohio. I came across an old Post Card from 1910 addressed to "Mrs. Mary Dempster at 810 South Pine Street in Lima, Ohio." Was wondering if you are related? I'll send you a copy of the post card.

Hi Carol,

I'm more than happy to transfer the management of the memorials for the Austin family to you. I'm adding over 5,000 names from the cemetery records to findagrave for our cemetery and it will be years before I have time to go in search of the obits. However, if you get stuck finding the obits I may have a few suggestions, so feel free to contact me if you need to.

Hi! In regards to your photo request, 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 Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there and take a photo of a grave. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 200 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

I really have no idea where that death date came from. He is not a relative of mine, so it must have been sent to me by someone else.

RE: Elizabeth Dempster Richardson
She married Howard Russell Richardson who was first married to Marquerite Florence Garver who is a 1st cousin 1x removed. I receive the Decatur Tribune and saw her obituary and since I am entering into I entered this information so it would help others as much as findagrave has help me.

RE: Dempsters in West Newton Cemetery
If you don't see her here, then no, I probably didn't find her. It's possible that her stone was eroded so much that it was unreadable though. I found the entire listing online at this site:

If you want to look it over. I went through it alphabetically and entered names. I don't believe I quite finished the entire cemetery but I would've gotten through all the D's.

RE: Dempsters in West Newton Cemetery
I'll be glad to transfer them over to you. I am not related, but some of my ancestors were in that cemetery so I transcribed the whole cemetery. Will transfer them shortly.
