|Andy Gappa||2 more Iroquois Theatre fire victims|
A pair of sisters are buried in the Mount Greenwood Cemetery with Iroquois Theater Fire written on their tombstones. One is Francis E. Wetmore (#148229541) and the other is Harriet A. Wetmore White (#148229317).
P.S. I don't know if you or someone else told me but I know there's a little girl buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Hammond, Indiana, that was also a victim in the fire. I created a memorial for her but I can't remember her name at the moment.
|Deborah Bennett||Re: no headstone for Richard Gronke|
I received your email noting that Oak Forest Cemetery was a Potter's field and is an open field with no headstones.
Could this information be added to the front page of the cemetery?
