Created the memorials # 144801838 and # 144801808.

I enjoy a good challenge, too.

Have fun!

RE: Who is next door?
Actually, I took them already. :)

They are for Zeddie Hart 1935-2007 and Sarale Alice Owens Jan 18, 1918 - Dec. 8, 1977.

If you want to make the memorials I would be glad to upload the photos.

Have a great day!

From the May 18, 1962 Chicago Tribune:

Scheffler of Elmhurst, Ill.; four grandchildren. Resting at Hebblethwaite Chapel, 1567 Maple avenue, Evanston, where service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday. Interment Graceland cemetery.

I hope this helps your research.

Dear Candace, it was my pleasure to help. What a very interesting project you are involved in. By a strange twist of circumstances, a family that my family has been friends with for almost 30 years just buried their husband/father in Brea, Calif. Ehsan was from Iran originally, and his family is Baha'i. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of his marker. I have been using Rock Creek's master list to add in grave sites for all the memorials on the request list -- that way, it will be easier for those fulfilling the requests to find the graves. It is a very large cemetery! I hope that this will help you get a photo sooner.

RE: Hi Duane
I don't see these messages often. I do know about Bertha. She was the second Baha'i in Topeka. She created the first community here. When she left, things fell apart. She wrote to Mabel about events here and I'm eager to read those letters, but they've not been accessioned that I know of.

After traveling to Olivet once, I discovered that John was buried in Topeka - in the same cemetery with my mother's parents and many Baha'is. I was amazed. He is our first death-bed conversion. It's in my book (so is Bertha).

Glad to know we have another connection.

I've just posted memorials for my Irish, McAllister family line. Obituaries confirmed stories my grandmother told. That was nice.

I think the stone is referring to her spouse. She married Hippolyte Dreyfus. You could update he memorial to her married name as well. I do know about her sister. I think she was one of the first open gay women?

RE: May Scheffler at Waldheim Jewish Cemetery
I am sorry this is not the correct May. I asked about Carl and Charles, but they are not listed at the cemetery management office that I went to.

There is a second management company who may be able to help you. Please contact Silverman & Weiss: Phone: 708-366-0125. If they have the people you are looking for, please send me the burial plot locations, and I will go back to the cemetery and take photos for you.

In case you do not know, this is a massive cemetery that combined 300 individual cemeteries into one cemetery with over 150,000 burials. There are often duplicate names between the two management companies that take care of the burial plots. Because of my schedule I usually only work with one of the two management companies, but I do take photos of any burial plot throughout the cemetery complex.

Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to this information.

RE: Laura Clifford Barney
I am not sure. The info that I have is that this is her name? Do you know if there was a marriage. I will gladly delete the memorial incase it is a duplicate. Let me know though if you find out about her name. My cousin in France and her kids are working on this cemetery. Thanks

RE: Marry Kurrus 134029924
The Skokie cemetery site is one I go to to check new interments, I have a list of about half a dozen all over which I browse when I don't have grave photos to add. I was born in Chicago, but live in Kansas now. I have a few folks buried in Chicago. It seems that cemetery in Skokie has some rules about photography, not sure.

RE: Marry Kurrus 134029924
Mary was not anyone I knew personally. From time to time I scope out cemeteries with confirmed burials via the internet, especially those in areas with large populations, where some people can get lost in the paperwork - sort of working through grave records. I enter what information I can, and it is through that that I created Mary's memorial. You are welcome to it!

Early Baha'i - Albert Dorrida
I want to suggest adding Albert E. Dorrida, Jr. to your virtual cemetery of early Baha'is. "Uncle Bill" as he was known, was an early member of the Baltimore community who met 'Abdu'l-Baha in 1912. He was an active mentor to many of the young Baha'is entering the Faith in the late 60s, including me. His grave (with photo)can be found at the Baltimore National Cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=dorrida&GSfn=albert&GSmn=e&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=22&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=593493&df=all&

My work with the cemetery was give back to the community while working in Phoenix. No relationship. Happy to have it in the hands of someone who can enhance it. Also, looking at your profile, I can see your work.
