By the way, if you are doing more poking around in Forest Lawn Glendale, here's a link to some pages that I created with the assistance of a number of other gravers, we have found them a useful resource within the group and some other people have found them helpful as well:

I am about to post a marker photo for her and wanted to let you know what I found. There is no other Lagerstrom near her and according to the Forest Lawn website there is no other Lagerstrom buried in the Sunrise Slope section. I do have a correction on her birth year from 1875 to 1874.

Would you like me to transfer management of Robert C. Lohmeyer's memorial to you (Find A Grave Memorial# 136252747)? I have no problem with that. Just let me know.
All the best,

|James Bellert||RE: Your bio|
Thank you for such kind words. I found my birth mother and her children. I was aware that one must be careful what one asks for the answer may not be what you want to hear. My birth mother was suffering from a personality disorder as were several of my half siblings. She denied my existence though her first three kids knew of me as our grandmother told them. There was another boy put up for adoption 18 months before I was born. I was one of eight kids born to at least four different men. At least four of the half siblings have personality disorders to varying degrees. One had a sex change operation. Half of them are religious fanatics. I found a half brother and his family in England that I became very close to but most of them have since passed away (prematurely). Still, I'm glad I did the search and made some contact. It was overwhelming meeting and seeing people that I actually resembled! I looked nothing like my adoptive family (and was nothing like any of them in other ways either).
I did some dna testing but I must admit the science is way beyond me. I had hoped to find some clue to my birth father but don't know where to begin.
As for the photos, I have been photographing every marker at McHenry County Memorial Park this summer. I'm about half done and luckily, your requests were ones I had already photographed. I've photographed three cemeteries this summer and two last summer. It takes time to organize and photoshop the photos then to see if any of the markers fit memorials already made or to make new memorials if none yet existed.
Sorry for the long rant.

Thank you for Emmogene and Sarah, also.
Albert was adjacent to them, according to Lois. Perhaps he has no marker.

Thank You very much for the picture of William's marker. He was a little out of my travel range, also.

Thank you very much for taking the time to take the picture of my uncle's headstone. I have just done my very first photo request for someone and know it is sometimes not easy to locate a grave. I truly appreciate it. I hope I can return the favor someday. Bruce

|Becky Doan||RE: Ted Doane|
That is okay. After I sent the request, it dawned on me that there may not be a marker yet. Thank you! Becky

|Observer4wing||RE: Re: Ruth and Lawrence|
Yes, it would be quite the extra mile to go back for Ruth and Lawrence from Nebraska! lol It sounds like you had a lovely reunion. I would jump on an opportunity like that if it was available within my family lines. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you have done for the Fischers.
Added by Observer4wing on May 30, 2014 4:43 AM
I was just thinking about how you practice going the extra mile as a volunteer when I realized that you took it even a step further by notifying me that you found Lily and Julia. Wow. I would not have thought to go back into the cemetery records to see if they suddenly appeared. You offered yet another gift by taking the time to let me know you found them. Thank you so much for your generosity and thoughtfulness.

|Observer4wing||RE: Henry, Julia, Lily Fischer|
Oh my word!!! I have been looking for Julia and Lily Fischer, and wondering if they were in that cemetery as well. THANK you for your style of looking further than the request. I am so grateful.
There is one other Fischer who I think is buried there. Records say he and his wife, Ruth, died in Danube, so I am guessing he is buried with the rest of the Fischers. Next time you are out there would you mind looking for Lawrence and Ruth Fischer? I'm not sure I should create the profiles just based on a healthy hunch.
Again, THANK YOU!

Thank you for taking the time to go out and see the Fischer family yesterday. Your generosity of time, energy and intention is greatly appreciated. I will pay it forward.

I really don't know if any of My Chapin relatives ended up in this cemetery. I have a lot of blank death information on a lot of my Chapin line. I do know some of the Chapin's landed in Kansas. This is one of my lines that still require a lot of work. Thank you for asking.

Thank you so much for photographing the Miller headstones at Hollenberg cemetery. Trying to piece together some family members and with a name like "Miller" it has been difficult. Best guess right now, looks like Lydia was named after her grandmother. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!!!
