Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in NE Iowa, but have lived in the south suburbs of Chicago since 1958.

I have been doing genealogy since 1998 and I am researching the families of: Lowell, Stamm, Burr, Wigal, Platt, Weed, Lamphier/Lamphear, Mazzocca, DeNardo/DiNardo, and DeNovellis.

If you find any errors in my info, please let me know so I can fix them. I will gladly transfer any memorial that is not my relative. I am also willing to add any links or additional information you may have.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stand among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care:
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died, and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Bloomvale Cemetery
Hi, I don't know if anyone got back to your question about this cemetery. The cemetery is located correctly on the map and you are correct about the railroad tracks across the street. This cemetery is completely overgrown now and on private property closed by a fence. It is completely inaccessible as of this report. Unless someone can find another way in this might be another lost cemetery. I plan on contacting the village to see if anything can be done about it.

RE: Transfer Request
Ter, thanks for your prompt reply. I do agree with you that it should primarily be about family, however from some of the comments I have seen by others, it is not always the case. Unfortunately it would appear that some members are perhaps more interested in "getting their numbers" up there!! :(
