She was my great-grandmother and born in 1880. I would be very interested in any more information you might have. I know that she died of tuberculosis in a sanitarium near Chicago: that might have been what is now Hinsdale Hospital.
I am Barbie J. Gentile firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to hearing from you
Also, I have a picture of her.

|Diane||RE: Florence Renwanz|
What you have is fine. The Social Security index had the Baxter, Arkansas location, but that is often the last address. She could have died in Texas while on vacation or visiting her daughter Lois D Rennwanz McCulloch - who married and lived in Dallas Texas, so Use the Texas location, as that is probably correct.
FYI - I have not been able to find her maiden name.

|Roger E. White||Names for Palos Oak Hill Cemetary|
Research of the data I have for Palos Oak Hill Cemetery left some questions unanswered. Unknown which family owned the plot of land the cemetery is located on first. The Campbell and McClaughrey families were related by marriage. The publication in The Palos Regional May 17, 1979, page 12, "A tour of Palos past history alive" Paragraph 7. Briar Hill Originally called Briar Hill and now known as Palos Oak Hills Cemetery. Was donated by Sidney Campbell as a burial ground for early settlers. Another history statement for Palos says the cemetery was called the McClaughrey Cemetery. Genealogy Trails, Finding Illinois Ancestors, Palos Oak Hill Cemetery, Burials 131st Street & 90th Ave., Palos Park.
Aka Briar Hill, Aka Oak Hill and Oak Knoll. Cemetery is #99 on the 1933 Plat map. on the 1875 Plat map the cemetery was located between the R.S. and adjoining Peter Warren properties for a start. When called McClaughrys Cemetery, it was #55 on an early 1920s Plat Map. Just a start if you want to dig out all the correct facts. Putting this information on a forum without proper documentation is like mythology. What the old timers remembered is not always correct.

|Roger E. White||RE: Alex Deak|
Oak Hill Cemetery had 4 names. I believe the first
was Mclaughrys Cemetery because the property was owned by the McClaughrey family (note spelling) then Oak Knoll, Briar Hill and last Oak Hill Cemetery. Every time the property changed hands a new name was used ( a lot of secret history here) Some of this info is online but I need some time to get the facts together. My wife called the Blue Island Oak Hill Cemetery and was told that baby Alex Deak was buried there and the plot is on record but maybe with no maker and would check when they get the time for it.

|Charlotte Jenkins||RE: John T Jenkins, Jr|
My brother John T. Jenkins Jr. is buried right next to my father at Forest Crest Cemetery in Birmingham,AL. There is not a memorial number for him, just a note saying that he is buried next to John T. Jenkins Sr. For some reason whomever took the picture of my fathers gravestone in Alabama did not take a piture of my brothers' gravestone.
My fathers' name is on the stone at Bethania in Justice, IL, but he is not buried there.
Thank you, Charlotte Jenkins

|Roger E. White||RE: Alex Deak|
You may be correct that the Oak Hill cemetery near Blue Island is the resting place for baby Alex Deak and not Palos. It would have been closer to where the Deak family lived in 1914. The only information I have is what the relatives told me and the death certificate only says Oak Hill Cemetery. The Oak Hill in Palos changed its name 3 times since it opened in the 1800s. Do you know if the one in Blue Island was called Oak Hill in 1914? The grave marker would most likely be made of cement and weathered to be illegible as many are in the Palos Oak Hill cemetery.
Thanks for responding,

Alex Deak was a baby buried in the Palos Park Oak Hill Cemetery on November 29, 1914. My wife and I looked all over the cemetery for the marker but did not find it. Baby Alex Deak is an uncle of my wife. My wife has a copy of the death certificate
and it lists Oak Hill as the burial place. I do not believe the other nearby Oak Hill cemetery was used. Do you have any ideas of what and where to look?

Hi, Christopher -
Thanks for your work in Oak Hill. You sent me a message about August Thorn's memorial page (#90698497). I suspect you are quite correct. I'll change the location.

Thank you for alerting me about the potential mixup with the cemeteries with similar names. I typically make very good notes in my files but with initial search I could not locate my source right away and will go back through some paper files with notes. I will make sure to look into this and ensure that what I have is correct, as it should be. This is very helpful as I am not familiar with the local cemeteries there in the area.

I found Mary has been added into Findagrave by another individual in a completely different cemetery other than Oak Hill. She is buried in Parkholm Cemetery in La Grange Park, Cook County, Ill. Her new Find A Grave memorial number is 114930018. I have requested of that person to include her complete information plus include her family links on his memorial. As soon as that is completed I will remove my memorial. I have ran into a similar situation like this before to find the individual had been removed to a new cemetry, which is quite possible in this case. Death records are usually pretty accurate about burial locations but not foolproof.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

|Ted Johnston||Lona Brouillet,|
Hello: Christopher Baker.
My name is Ted Johnston #48208488. I have just found and joined Find a grave 13 days ago. Its a great site to be a member of!
I would like to make a formal request of you to transfer two family Fine a grave memorials to me. I have already sponsored them as well. I own the grave and have buried my Aunt and(godmother Lona B.Brouillet)when she died in 1970.I also paid for her furneal when she passed. She was living with me after Uncle Hector died.I never knew her son Homer for he died before I was born.I only have photos of him. I have lot of updating to do as well after they are retuned home. I also found out that the graves and stones need foundation work at the cost of over $1000. as well. But as the owner I must do what has to be done. The cemetery does't seem to care about them.Anyway if this is not the right way to make a request and I need to apply through Find a grave first please advise me. I only want to abide by there rules. Thank You for you kind consideration.
Ted Johnston #48208488
My aunts number is Lona Schmook Brouillet #106166658
Homer Mason #106158551 (her son)

Thanks, Christopher. I do believe that you have found the correct photo. I spent a lot of time on the Wagner family in general today. While I was able to find four census records for her husband, I found only one for Margaret. It is possible that you found the correct SSDI for her. However, I agree that we have no definite proof. I'm not sure of the significance of her headstone never having the date of death inscribed. You've done a great job on Saint Michael's!

I just got back from Mission Cemetery and there aren't two markers, just the one. Although it isn't a military marker, it does have the inscription US Army directly below Reason's name in acknowledgement of his service. Dottie

|Anne Philbrick||Elizabeth Wagner|
Excellent! You found it. With your headstone images, I was able to figure out that Elizabeth was actually Mary Elizabeth Wagner, the daughter of Peter Wagner and Catherine Fisch Wagner (both interred in Saint Johns Cemetery), and one of up to 16 siblings. Was her headstone near any other Wagners in the cemetery?
