RE: Truen
Yes she does, sorry I uploaded the wrong photo at the cemetery. I have added the pic of her stone. I also added a profile for her husband, and added his stone.

Hi Lou,

I wish you contacted me three days ago. For the first time in several years, I happened to be in Lexington and visited the Fiske plot at the cemetery there. There are about 25 to 30 Fiskes all buried in the same plot. Most of the wives graves are directly next to the husbands. There are also a fair amount of Maynards buried in the cemetery and it would also be possible that she is buried among her Maynard kin. I hope that helps.

RE: Gibbs
Unfortunately I could not find her headstone and it was a small enough area. So I had to assume that her headstone is not there or she doesn't have one. So the best I could send you was the snapshot of the area where she is buried. Sorry I could not find more. I know you would have liked a headstone photo. Best regards.

RE: Dennis
I'm sorry about that it was my fault my phone did something weird when I was uploading George's photo I didn't think to check his memorial to see if his photo was on there.

My apologies,

Lou, You're very welcome glad I could help. Hillside cemetery didn't have any record of Keith Joyce. I'm working on the photo requests for Forest Lawn, Calvary, St Mary's in Minneapolis, Oakland, Hillside and Resurrection cemeteries it may take some time to get your photo requests fulfilled as there are many photo requests for each cemetery and each cemetery only allows so many people to look up.

Beedy photo requests
Lou, I uploaded the 2 remaining photos I had for you. The dates you have for Mabel are different than the stone. Not sure what is correct. Anyway, I believe I have completed all of your requests as of today. If I missed anyone, please let me know! It was a pleasure helping you.

Beedy photo requests
Hi Lou,
I was working on more of your photo requests today. I located Margaret Beedy with Russell Beedy but she does not have a memorial set up yet that I could find. If you would like to establish one for her, I will upload a photo for her. I also found a stone for Mabel E. Beedy to the right side of the burial plot of Pearl and Adna Beedy. The dates on her stone are 1919-1920. Perhaps the young child of Pearl and Adna. If you would like to establish a memorial for her as well, I will upload a photo for her too. Will wait to hear from you.

RE: Oyler, Beedy and King photo requests
Hello Lou, Sorry for my delay in responding. I am going to the two cemeteries that your persons are at. Just to recap your requests they are as follows:

Evergreen Cemetery:
Vlasta Oyler and Eldon Oyler
Forest Hill Part 8 Lot 847 grave 3

Oak Hill Cemetery:
Pearl Beedy, Adna Beedy Division 12 Lot 154
Julia King, Sylvester King Division 9 Lot 442
Russell Beedy, Margaret Beedy Division 12 Lot 154

If everything looks correct, I will have them for you in the next 2 weeks. If I forgot anyone, please let me know. Thank you! Susan

RE: Blanchard
You're very welcome. I have requested an edit linking her with the David Blanchard who is buried at Ft. Snelling. Do you know whether they had any children?

Also, it's not "Evergreen Park Cemetery." It's "Evergreen Cemetery (and Mausoleum)" in Evergreen Park, Illinois.

RE: Oyler
How did you find the Barrington Cemetery? Both Evergreens come up when you search "Evergreen" "Illinois" and "Cook" County.

Here's the link to the correct cemetery:

And here's the link to the correct memorial:

Also, I did a reverse lookup on the phone number you called and it shows it is the number for the Evergreen Park Evergreen Cemetery.

RE: Oyler
The 708 area code is the one for Evergreen Park, Illinois. Barrington's area code is 847. I think you talked to someone in the Evergreen Park cemetery.

The person who answers the phone in Barrington is usually the head groundskeeper (unless you get a voicemail) and if he's out mowing lawns or something you won't get a live answer.

To make a long story short, I'm sure the Oylers are not in Barrington and must be in Evergreen Park.

The rough map of the Evergreen Park cemetery is at . It's one of the photos on the Find A Grave page for that cemetery.

RE: Oyler
Me again. I just found a rough map of the Evergreen Park Evergreen Cemetery and it shows locations like Forest Hill, Cedar Hill, Cave Hill, etc. Perhaps you misheard "Fourth" for "Forest?" As you can see from the Library's transcription, the section numbers in Barrington are like "14-4" or "G-25."

RE: Oyler
What phone number did you call? Was it area code 708? The Barrington number is 847-304-5309. There's seldom anyone in the office. The Evergreen Park cemetery already has a memorial for her in that park so I have to believe that's the correct one. The funeral home was in Berwyn, IL which is much closer to Evergreen Park than Barrington. Also, the grave location you give isn't one used in the Barrington cemetery. There are no hills in that cemetery. The section numbers are just numbers 1-38, or letters A-P. If you want to check the Barrington Library's online transcription for the Barrington Evergreen Cemetery, look at There are no Oyler's listed as being buried there. I photographed every marker in the Barrington Cemetery, finishing last Fall (I did this project primarily because so many requests for photos were mistakenly done for Barrington when they should have been done for Evergreen Park - I was sent on too may wild goose chases ;>). I have no photographs for any Oyler's in Barrington. So, if somehow they are buried in Barrington, there's no marker for them. But I'm sure they are buried in Evergreen Park. And someone else must think so because that's where a memorial already exists.

RE: Oyler, Beedy and King photo requests
Hello Lou,

I have your requests on my list. I noticed that you have not yet established memorials for:

Adna Beedy
Sylvester King
Margaret Beedy

If it not too much trouble, would you mind creating them and placing a photo request for each of them? Even if you don't have all of their info, at least enter their names and add info later. It will be a bit easier for me once I take the photos. I have so many requests working right now I don't want them to get lost in the shuffle! Thank you so much!

Photo request for Sheri Umphreys
Wanted to let you know that I went to the Farm Creek Cemetery in Henderson, Iowa this weekend to visit my grandparents graves and to try to fulfill your request for a photo of Sheri Umphreys headstone. Unfortunately, I could not find a headstone or her name on the cemetery list/map. However, there is a listing and headstone for a Ryan Michael Umphreys, b 17 Sept 1984; d 03 Dec 1984. Not sure if he's related but I did take a photo of that headstone I can send.

I would suggest contacting the cemetery custodians to see if they have anything in their records.
The information is:
Bette Byers
PO Box 77
Henderson, IA 51541
(712) 825-5665
(712) 370-1191

Sorry I couldn't fulfill the photo request.
