Darthula Milholland Photo
I just wanted you to know that there was also a marker for Jack Milholland next to Darthula's.
I have a photo of that marker if you want to create a memorial.

Wheeling Twp not on list
I have the original list of burials, and I have taken pictures of all of the stones that I could read; and there are no surnames matching your request. This cemetery has been known by many names including Kennicott, Euclid, Arlington and now Wheeling Twp.
In the 1950's the privately owned cemetery went broke and the Township took over. Even back in the 1940's there are minutes of meetings indicating the records were not the best. From the 1950's forward the records are much better.
In addition there is a Wheeling cemetery in the Village of Wheeling on Dundee Road, and there is an Arlington Cemetery in Elmhurst.
So there is a chance your relative is in Wheeling Twp and they have no record of it, or perhaps they are in a different cemetery.
Wheeling Township phone and ask for Linda. 847.259.7730
Wheeling Cemetery in Wheeling IL 847.259.7730
Arlington Cemetery in Elmhurst 630.833.9696
Good Luck
Del Ulreich

Dale I am sorry I wasn't able to get back to the cemetery to find the graves for you. My husband injured his back and we have spent the last two weeks going to doctors and today he had a procedure at the hospital that we hope will help him. I see someone else claimed your request. Hope they will be able to help you.

Dale you are right. I was unable to find a headstone for John Jacobson.

I did not see another Cookson in the area. Back then I am not sure people bought more than one plot at a time. Did you ask the cemetery office about her ? I can walk his area again and be sure, and look closer at the copies of "maps" they gave me. They have last names only and then the grave area numbers.

Wouldn't you know it's a section of the cemetery where I don't have a map, so I will have to go to the office and ask for one. :-)
I need to check on another request too so no biggie. Will do soon.

John Cookson
When I went back today to clean and take a new photo for Catherine I found him !!! :-) So I have a photo to upload for him tonight too. So we're just looking for Frances Robertson now.
I wish they would just get with it and computerize. :-)

I am having some problems getting location to go take a photo.
I contacted Find a Grave and they suggested I write you and have you contact the cemetery and get an exact location: Name of area in cemetery and a plot # or area #.
They are being asked to look up a lot of information and say they have to put these requests last.
I emailed the cemetery and never got a response back.
If this continues I won't be able to take photos as I don't want to bother them more than once.

I went to the cemetery today and took pictures of Catherine's headstone. I didn't have any tools to clean up the stone so it would take a good photo and I am not happy with the one I took. When I am again in the area, I will go back and take another to replace what I posted on her page tonight.

Cook @ Cypress Lawn
we found no headstone at lot 414.
you might wish to call the office to make sure you have the correct address

do NOT rely on their website, as it is fraught with error.

call them at 650-755-0580

Edward Cookson
I am sorry it has taken me so long to get information for you on Edward.
I contacted the caretaker this a.m. and while Edward is buried in the cemetery, there is no marker on his grave.
If I can be of any other service, please contact me.

RE: Hosken graves


We have had several days of rain/sleet with nighttime freezing over the snow already on the ground. It is very treacherous to walk on. I have difficulty on even, dry ground, so it will be some time before I can get out there and look. Another factor is that flat markers will probably covered with snow. Try me again in April.

I filled your photo request for James at Forest Lawn Glendale. Please be advised the burial lot is 5467 not 4567 so you should update the memorial. There is no lot 4567 in Sunrise Slope. I was looking for it on one of the section maps and couldn't find it so I went back to the FL website and found the correct reference.

Elizabeth Stephenson @ Forest Park Cemetery in Houston
I see you added a picture request for Elizabeth Stephenson @ Forest Park Cemetery in Houston. If you would call the cemetery at 713-928-5141 and get a "SECTION" and "LOT" I will try to get the picture you want. This is a very large (225+) acre cemetery and without a location would be very hard to find.

Thank you,
