Hi, my name is Todd. I was born and raised in Chicago and I am the youngest of eight children.|
I became interested in cemeteries about 5 years ago and discovered the Find A Grave web site about 3 years ago. I am very family oriented and perhaps that is why I find beauty and solace in the places we choose to lay our loved ones to rest. Cemeteries are a reverent, holy and sacred place we can go to remember the people we loved. Many people find cemeteries scary and approach them with trepidation but I think they are beautiful and each one is unique in its own way and a place that we can visit to honor and show respect to those people whom we shared out lives.
Each gravestone tells a brief story or history and is a testament to someone who lived and loved and continued the story of humankind's wonderful journey. Our loved ones continue to live through our memories and our stories of them. May God bless.

Todd: I am an historical researcher for the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society in Lincoln, IL. I am currently working on a book about Logan County during the WWI period. Christopher is listed as a soldier from Logan County and I wish to use a photo of him in the book. Could you tell me which young man in the photo you have place on his memorial page is Christopher? I currently have his military stone as a photo.

I am sorry but his grave is not marked, ne was relocation from Rock Spring Cemetery and none of those were/are marked.

Hi Cemetery man! Thank you for the photo of Ida! I did look for the Petrachek obits, never found much & will send an email!

Todd, Did you get my email or did it go to spam? Luella
|Luella Hinrichsen||RE: Headstone|

If you want I could copy off some of the main pages of the family and send them to you. You can send an email to me.

Thank you so much for the great photos of their stone! It is quite unusual and so readable! You were right about seeing the Anton, I assume these are some of the eight children! It is so nice to have younger folks interested in their family history, bless you!

Unfortunately all I have about Otto & Rudy is that they "never married', I'm sure there is an obit for them hopefully. I can check the Humboldt Library to see. Art Lang 70850 Hwy 50 DuBois, NE 68345 (402-859-4570) has vols. of Blecha Family History he has collected, 3 vol. on just Albert side. On your family he doesn't have a lot. Since they were in CA there isn't much. He does have a copy of Anna & Frank's marriage license, no obits. Has the obit for Elsie, but not the name of the cemetery. He has your family & the 8 of you & spouses up to- Gloria & you have no spouses listed. I don't know what year he made these books, he may have updated since mine! He loves to talk, as do I, but he knows more!
Has most on the Gossman family See now he has obit for Anna, in the next vol. lot on the Carpenter side. Guess this is enough for now! :) Luella
