What began as a way to memorialize only members of my family has turned into something larger and seemingly open-ended. Most of my memorials are not for my relatives.|
I have done extensive work in the following cemeteries:
Calvary Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois
East Batavia Cemetery, Batavia, Illinois
Glen Oak Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois
Kaneville Cemetery, Kaneville, Illinois
Marywood Cemetery, Aurora, Illinois
Oakwood Cemetery, West Chicago, Illinois
River Hills Memorial Park, Batavia, Illinois
Saint John the Baptist Cemetery, Winfield, Illinois
West Batavia Cemetery, Batavia, Illinois
I have tried to add as much information as is readily available. I gladly will make corrections or add information. Please do not use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines.
Feel free to use any of my photographs for non-commercial use, but please give credit where credit is due.
Thank you to those who have added photographs and flowers to my memorials. They are appreciated. Please let me know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs and flowers myself.
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."
“The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding. On the whole, men are more good than bad; that, however, isn't the real point, but they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance that fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. The soul of the murderer is blind; and there can be no true goodness nor true love without the utmost clear-sightedness.”
Albert Camus, The Plague

FYI - I added photos to your memorials of the above-named people. Thank you for maintaining these memorials; they are my great-grandparents.
|Joe Frerich||RE: Elleanor in Kaneville Cemetery|
I was afraid as much. Thanks for checking, I'd heard from Susan Smith that the records are cumbersome & not very helpful if you don't have a surname.
Dennis, Thanks so much for the edits, suggestions & corrections.....much appreciated. Some of these older stones are frustratingly difficult to read. Do you have a copy (or access to) the Kaneville Cemetery records? I have a problem plinth in the old section (inner circle): one name on each side but the only one I can decipher is Elleanor. No surname visible at the bottom of the obelisk & no dates discernible either! It's located due west of Sherman Lovell (1836-1928), due north of Jacob Whitney (1798-1866) & due east of Hugh Price. I've taken shots 3 different times (different lighting) but can make out nothing. Thanks. Joe
