If you call Acacia Park Cemetery and Mausoleum at 773-625-7838 and:
1. Ask if your photo request person has a headstone / grave marker.
2. If there is a headstone / grave marker ask for the section, block, lot and grave number.
3. If you send that information to me, Susan (#48964989) I will go there and fulfill your photo request. Of course any other Find A Grave volunteer can also fulfill your request if you then add the headstone location information to your photo request page.
Good Luck.

Schaefer Trees
Hi Dale,

Thank you so much for the Schaefer information. I haven't really begun to work on Scott's (my husband) tree as I've still got so far to go on my own. I'll email you with some additional info and links.

Kind Regards,

Hi Dale,
Thank you so much for the information. I just switched it to the correct cemetery. I really appreciate the update. Now we can go there and see if we can get a picture of his monument.

Bevier in Graceland
I also contacted the cemetery about your request for Dubois Bevier and got this response: "Dubois Bevier is buried in Section “R” Lot 803 Grave #7. This was a Rodi Lot with several burials before becoming a single grave area. There is one Rodi burial with a headstone. From the lot card it appears there is a headstone for Dubois Bevier. Helma S. Bevier is buried in the grave to the right of him. She does not have a headstone. There are three listings under Bevier which are Dubois, Hilma and Baby Elizabeth Ann Bevier cremated 6/12/1954. Usually when a name is listed ”Baby” is not on the record. Since Baby is the first name on the record it is entered under Baby and not Elizabeth." Regards, Bob Lerch

Edward Murray in Graceland
Ii contacted the cemetery staff to respond to your photo request. Their answer was "Edward Murray is buried in a family lot in Resub “P” Lot 13 Grave #2. It is a Carson Lot with four burials –all Carson except for Murray. The 3 Carson burials have headstones but not Murray according to the lot card. In fact, the back of the lot card does not even show his grave marked or show a burial location. There is a monument on the Carson Lot."
It is not marked, but he is buried there. Regards, Bob Lerch

William Robertson & wife Mary High
Dear Dale, I am 3-great grandaughter of Thomas Holmes Robertson, brother to John Alsobrook Robertson. Would you send me a list of children of William & Mary that are not listed on their Find A Grave memorials please? I would be so grateful for your kindness. If you would like information on the Robertson family line in Missouri, I would be happy to oblige. Thank you, Jenifer Jones

RE: William Robertson & Wife Mary
Dale, thanks for your rapid reply! While you were writing that note I found an 1850 census for my William in which he lived in Bedford County, TN, with three of his children. Mary is not listed. The children named in this Bedford County census match the ones listed by William's granddaughter when she applied to receive money from the government that was owed to descendants of Cherokee Indians. My William had a son named Eli who married the daughter of a "half-breed", as the papers said, and their daughter applied for the money.

So I think I have to rule out your W&M being my ggg grandparents.

I still think a relationship is likely between my branch of Robertsons and your W&M. There was a reason my branch of the family moved from Georgia in 1865 to that part of Indiana, but I've never found the reason. I know why they left Georgia (Civil War destroyed their county), but I didn't know why they moved to the area around Bigger IN. I figured it was family, but what family?

"Calvin" in your James Calvin is intriguing. Could explain my gg grandfather's middle name. I believe his first name was John, but he went by Calvin.

I will look at your tree!

William Robertson & Wife Mary
Hi Dale, I am writing to ask if you have documentation for the children of the William and Mary shown in these memorials:

William: 90087144
Mary: 90087168

My ggg grandparents are William and Mary Robertson. Mary's maiden name is unknown. The William and Mary in your memorials are buried less than 10 miles from where my gg grandfather Calvin Robertson lived in the early 1870s, in Bigger, IN. Calvin's brother Eli also lived nearby. About the time of your William and Mary's deaths, Eli and Calvin moved south to Tennessee--as if they waited until their parents died.

I am just not sure your W&M are my W&M. The facts line up well except that you list different children than I hoped to find, so I'm wondering what documents you used to determine who their children were.

If you'd like to see Calvin and Eli in my family tree on, lookup "Victor Robertson & Brenda Griffin family trees". I have a great photo of Calvin.

Thank you for any help you can give!

Bridget Roan
I could not find Bridget Roan but found a stone with Roan with dates in the same range but not exact. I can send them to you if you want, just let me know. It may not be Bridget but maybe you could use them.

Mary Stinson
I went to the cemetery today to photograph her tombstone, but she doesn't have one and neither does Riley E Stinson. I'm going to add a photo to show you the location of where she's buried. She is in the same lot with Tressie Scovill and her husband.

Schaefers at St. Mary's Cemetery
Hi! Photos posted for Christopher, Nicholas, and Magdelena Schaefer.

Down the row were the following burials.

1. Louis Schaefer, 1832 - 1896
2. Marianna, 1849 - 1927
3. Katherine, 1873 - 1943

If you add photo requests for them I will post the photos that I took.

The name Schaefer is all over this cemetery, so I do not know if they are related to the ones in the photos that I posted.

I was in the Our Lady Catholic Cemetery to fulfill some photo requests. I looked for Bridget but did not find her. There is a Flynn stone with 2 foot markers by it, one says father the other says brother. That is all I found for the name Flynn. Sorry, J Fearing

Weber, Johann
While there is no marker, grave site is easily found (T22 F19 as recorded in Mchenry County Illinois Cwem. Vol III Page 130.) 3rd. from road across from clergy site , west of monumental evergreen cedar trees.
Don't know if you are where directly related to Fr. Jim Weber, I knew him from the 1960's, a great guy.

Matilda Self
I went to the cemetery again yesterday to work on a survey I am doing of it. I looked again for her, because another one that I thought was not there, I actually found. But I didn't find her. I will be going back in the next week or two (if the rattlesnakes aren't out, they tend to like this cemetery). Will let you know if I do run across her grave. There used to be a bunch of old wooden markers that have been rotted and when a fire went through I'm sure it destroyed most of them years agao. Also, the cemetery records were destroyed years ago too.

There is no stone in the Stites IOOF cemetery for Matilda Self. It is just local history that she is buried there. Very few stones remain in the cemetery. It has not been maintained or used since the 1950's.
