Hello, The image on the left is of my grandfather and his brother. It was likely shot at the 1915 Lincoln Exposition in Chicago. Grandpa (on the right) stands on a prosthetic leg and is also missing his right arm. The loss of these limbs were a result of an encounter with a high power line while working as a roofer in Chicago. The "Human Torch" was able to recover and father three more children. If not for his will to survive I would not be here today, my father was conceived after the accident.
Magnus and Bessie Lakness Thanks for taking pictures of Magnus and Bessie Lakness headstones at the Scandinavian cemetery! Still looking for Magnus' first wife Lena who may also be buried in the same cemetery. Thanks again! Scott Thompson
Henry and Gertrude Mund Helping those who live so far away from their deceased loved ones is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us. Your time and effort are much appreciated; you're an asset to this web site! Thank you
Harry Norton Thanks so much for the photo of Harry's headstone! I know you've taken photos for me before, and I'll probably have more requests at some point as I continue to research my Civil War families. Hope you enjoyed your day in the cemetery!
