Re: photo request for Elizabeth Bellinger
FYI, We searched the cemetery, but didn't find a marker. We only found one Bellinger marker, Peter & Eve Bellinger. I've uploaded it.

Gerfen
Hi you have a photo request for Maria F Gerfen #19151781, I went out there and she is nowhere to be found. There are other Gerfens out there and grave markers are in good condition. There is a Martha F Gerfen at that location, also on F.A.G. #116659511 with same birth year as Maria, same middle initial, DOD are 30 years apart. Could they be one in the same? Is it possible that DOD was transposed as a 4 when it could've been a 1 or vice-versa?? Please let me know as I am very curious :) thanks

Zion Cemetery
Hello,
Most folks call me Bob and I'm the one who volunteered to take pictures of headstones in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery in Bensenville Il. I have gone there twice. The first time, was my first time to try and photograph headstones and I only took names and not death dates. Turns out that the cemetery is not only Lutheran but German as well.
In typical German efficiency, the internments are done in order of death and there are no family plots in the older sections.
For my second foray, I took dates of death but could not find any headstone of one who died before 1850. And while I think I found how the cemetery is laid out, I am also still somewhat confused.
Where, by date, your ancestor should be, he/she is not. Sometimes there is an open space indicating there may be a grave without a monument, but sometimes there is no space. And sometimes, the dates do not follow in logical order.
5 people before me, have taken and published pictures on findagrave, from Zion Cemetery. I have emailed them asking help and/or for sources they used. I will continue to work on this project. In the meantime, you might enjoy the following article;
http://www.franzosenbuschheritagesociety.org/churches/zionlutheranchurch2.htm
Please note that some of the congregation left and not only started a new church, but took their relatives with them. So, a question, does the list on findagrave come from a list that shows only those who were buried there and not those who were moved?
So, I hope you will have some patience for somebody who is going through OJT, (On Job Training),
Sincerely
Robert "Bob" Wahl

Jim Bockhaus
Genealogy for Backus
My area of interest is for Backhaus. The family came from Borstel, a small village near Hannover, Germany in 1865. They settled in Kankakee County (Yellowhead township), IL and in the late 1890's moved to Douglas township, Bremer Co., Iowa. Upon moving to Iowa the spelling on the name changed to Bockhaus. Various spellings in the Chicago area were Backus, Bachaus,Bakaus and others. I would be interested in what you may have on the Backhaus line. I can provide my details if there is interest. James A. Bockhaus. My email address is bockhaus@mtco.com.

Thank You!
Dear Cheryl,

Once again, thank you for fulfilling for me yet another request at the Jesuit Cemetery. I'm sorry I had to drive you there once more, but I didn't know Father Canavan was buried there in the first place.

Best regards,

-- Eman
