Thanks for taking the time to try and find Johann's tombstone. It is appreciated and I am sorry that you did not locate one but it is very possible that he does not have one. I have removed my request.

Thanks so much for trying to locate the grave of Nicholas Hilbrich to photo his tombstone. I know that a lot of the older ones have gotten to the point that they can not be read. I do appreciate you trying.

Garden of Saint Francis is a specific area within the Our Lady of the Desert Cemetery. There are multiple cemeteries merged into one.

See if you can find a map on line and it will be easier for you to see. Perhaps under the Archdioceses Catholic groups ? I use the map then I do a photo shoot in the cemetery.

he's all yours. Blessings and have a great day. If you have any other relatives in the area that I manage, just let me know. I am only related to a few in the Kendall County, DeKalb County area; however, it is where I live, so I have created quite a few memorials in the area as a pay-it-forward gesture.

Welcome Back!
Find-A-Grave needs you...we need you. As volunteers we all have something to bring to the table. Bless those who have the patience to sit and type thousands of names and dates into the database. And bless those who have the physical stamina to hike miles of cemetery rows to take photos. And yes, I thank goodness for those who are fussy and hard to get along with. In nature that kind of gritty annoyance produces a perfect pearl. And Ed, I do believe you're on your way to becoming a most beautiful pearl.

Hi, Ed,

You are so very welcome. I am pleased that one of the photos I took reached a descendant.

I have a note taped to my computer to look for more Dunstrup graves on my next trip "home." There are over 17,000 graves in St. Mary's Cemetery, so I'm hoping they are near the others and somehow, I just missed them on my last trip.

My friend, who lives in Orlando, visited Chicago last summer, made the rounds of the cemeteries, and found many of his ancestors. Beginners luck, I call it!

I doubt that I will ever see Chicago; my ancestors are all in Pittsburgh. I am happy to try to find yours.

Best regards,

Ed, you are so very welcome! I have made a note of the other Dunstrup names and I remember the general area I walked at the cemetery. I hope to be at St. Mary's this fall or next spring and I will try to look for more graves. I walked in rows, snapping pictures, so the graves must not have been readily identifiable. I'll look harder next time!

Best regards,
