Bio Photo This is me, at age 1, playing in the cemetery. Click the picture for an enlarged view. I am sooo cute!!!

If you are interested in "White Bronze" or zinc monuments, I have published a book of photos of them in the Chicago area. You can check it out at www.zincmarkers.com

While researching our family tree, we browsed the old photo albums we found tons of pictures taken at the family cemeteries. My first "cemetery" photo was taken when I was about 1 month old at Glen Oak Cemetery in Hillside, IL. My grandfather had just passed away and we visited every week. I remember my mom telling the story that I was playing in my sandbox making little piles of sand. She asked what I was doing and I replied "Making graves!"

My oldest daughter kids around that I talk to dead people, thus the name "SixthSense".

In all honesty, I wanted to be a mortician but I married, divorced and raised two beautiful daughters instead.

Cemeteries have always fascinated me, and this is a great way to display some of the beautiful headstones as well as to remember those who left us, often much too soon. Inspired by "Tombstoner", I have begun adding burials of people that I have not know personally, but have found their monument unusual, their obituary interesting, and most important... I want them to be honored here. If I have added someone that you wanted to add, please let me know. I meant no offense and I will gladly remove my entry so that you can add it yourself.

RE: Fred Dreyer Memorial
I have a hunch that Fred was a son of Julius William & Augusta Roggentin Dreyer; the husband of Lucille McManus & the father of Phyllis Dreyer Shipp & Wayne E Dreyer. Can you confirm this info? If you can, I will add it to the memorial. Lucille's mother was Olive Steenbergen, one of my cousins.

William A Foust
William Alonzo Foust's tombstone gives a death date in 1935, yet he is still listed in the 1940 Census. The 1940 census still shows him with his wife Norma and still working as a movie censor. Any thoughts?

Find A Grave Memorial# 21827609
Hi, My name is Kaylie. My father, Brad Edward Conard passed away when I was a very small child. I have saw there were a few pictures of his grave. I have only seen it one time and that was when I was 16 years old. I was wondering if you could get closer pictures of the three pictures on his head stone? There is already one up close picture but I wanted to see what were int he other two pictures on there.

Thanks,
Kaylie Conard

OAK RIDGE CEMETERY
Hi Sixth Sense,
I wrote you about a year ago; you offered to take a photo of my ancestor, FLORENCE ELIZABETH BRADLEY born 6/19/1860 died 2/27/1928. This below was my message to you, were you ever able to get a photo? Thanks for everything that you do! Bless your heart
She is buried at the Oak Ridge Cemetery located at 4301 West Roosevelt Road, Hillside, Illinois. She is buried in Section 2, Lot #317. I don't know if her husband, CHARLES FRANK BRADLEY born abt. 1860 is buried there or not. But, she is! Yea! You say that you talk to dead people? Indeed, so do I. Every time that I go to a cemetery, I ask them to let me know where they are located, so I can stop by and say hello. Within the first row or two that I meander into, there they are! They guide us, they want us to know where they are and who they were. Thank you so much. Eilene

I have your book White Bronze. I believe that you are going to publish another White Bronze of Kane County.

Any information that you are able to give me will be greatly appreciated.


I have really enjoyed your book so much. I am now a White Bronze hunter.

Thank you
