|Bio and Links|
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother.|
My passions in life are my family, genealogy,
I started climbing my family tree when I was twelve, and haven't stopped yet!
I have enjoyed taking some "roots vacations" to
Illinois and Pennsylvania. Genealogy naturally leads you to the world of history. I enjoy American History very much.
Many of my ancestors came to America for religious reasons. I have traced them through
just about every war that America has taken part in.
"Turning Hearts" comes from the last verse in The Old Testament, Malachi 4: 6.
Findagrave.com is one of my very favorite websites.
QUOTES AND POEMS THAT I LIKE:
It is a second death after you are forgotten.
How many generations does it take, even in a close knit family, for the fabric to unravel....?
Albert Lewis, Jewish Rabbi
"And death hath come upon our fathers; nevertheless we know then, for a Book of Remembrance we have written among us, according to the pattern of God." Moses 6: 45-46
"It isn't the date on either end that counts
But how they used their dash
For that dash between the dates
Represent the time they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them know
What that little line is worth."
William Elliot Dudley
Those we love, don't go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
--Still loved, still missed and
WHAT CANCER CANNOT DO
Cancer is so limited..
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal Eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit
Cancer is so limited!
Transition by William Cullen Bryant
So live that when they summons
comes to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm where each
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not like the quarry slave
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained
By an unfaltering trust, approach
Like one who wraps the draperies of
About him and lies down to pleasant

|Carrie||RE: Charles Wells Aldrach|
It's true, there is no headstone. The office lady did say he was buried next to an Elizabeth Alrach. I know nothing else about Elizabeth. Sorry!

|Joseph Mann||RE: Leslie Samuel G. Belsom|
You're very welcome. I am glad I could have been of help.
I go not know why he was buried in the Koenig grave. I couldn't find any relationship. But the cemetery did confirm the location.
|Tim McNinch||RE: Mark S. Hurd|
You are so very welcome. I enjoy being outdoors and seeing the resting place of so many people who meant so much to someone.

If you call Acacia Park Cemetery and Mausoleum at 773-625-7800 and:
1. Ask if your photo request person has a headstone / grave marker.
2. If there is a headstone / grave marker ask for the section, block, lot and grave number.
3. If you send that information to me, Susan (#48964989) I will go there and fulfill your photo request. Of course any other Find A Grave volunteer can also fulfill your request if you then add the headstone location information to your photo request page.

You're very welcome :)
|Kathie||Ryan @ St L Calvary|
Sorry, But there was only one stone for that lot, and even that person is not listed as being buried there in the archdiocese online search. To top it off, same as her husband.
Please see the caption for lot information.

Ms John has no marker at the location provided by the cemetery - Sec 1, Lot 4, which is unusual for that family, I think. I'll add a photo of her burial site and will give the area another search on my next trip.

|Gail A||RE: Lois Adams Holman|
You are very welcome. It's a shame that some of the headstones are in such rough condition. So hard to read some of them. Massachusetts is a lovely place.
