Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many of the additions made to findagrave have been burials in the Eloise Cemetery in Westland, Michigan and removals of patients from there to the Detroit College of Medicine later known as Wayne University College of Medicine. Some remains were transferred to the University of Michigan. The patients buried in the Eloise Cemetery were those whose remains were not claimed by family or friends and the cemetery was a Potter's Field with graves marked only by numbers. Many of the records were lost and the burials have been extrapolated from the original death records. In many cases a copy of the death certificate has been scanned on the memorial by me or Brenda Ozog who added about 450 of the burials. There were about 7100 burials in the Eloise Cemetery and records from 1925-1934 are still missing. You can obtain copies of the death certificates on patients buried in the cemetery between the years 1935-1948 from the Burton Historical Collection of the Detroit Public Library. No further burials were made in the cemetery after 1948. You have my permission to copy any of the photos on the memorials.

Hello, Patricia. Thank you so much for taking a photo of my great grand parents headstone. (Stephen and Elizabeth Demeter.) I wasn't expecting it.

Do you also do the same for the Woodmere Cemetery? My grandparents are buried there.

Thank you again.

Just did some checking from the Peoria Genealogy book for St. Mary's & found out that Margaret, Patrick, William A., Mary L., Helen C. & Genevieve are all buried in the same row at St. Mary's in W. Peoria.

Hope this helps,
Dan R.

Hi Patricia,
Not for sure if it is the one you seek but the quickest & most accurate way to find out is to call the cemetery office. They keep records on all burials.
Resurrection mausoleum & cemetery has all records for St. Mary's in West Peoria & are phone friendly if you call them. Their phone# is 309-691-5889

Good luck with your research,
Dan R.
