Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in cemeteries started when I was a kid. There was a cemetery near my house and we would walk to it when the weather was nice.

It is an interesting feeling knowing these people used to walk the same ground as we do so many years ago.

Names of particular interest: Brown, Butler, Egnaczak/Ignaczak/Ignasiak, Shaw, Weeks, and Woods.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If you would like me to transfer the management of a grave to you, or if you have any information which needs to be added or corrected, please feel free to let me know.

Thank you!

RE: Ignaczak
Well, Shane, the secretary confirmed two things for me. She was very accommodating. One, there is no headstone for Bruno. Second, there is no way to tell where, exactly,"#389 Singles Section" is. In the early days of the cemetery, burials were not indicated on any map or diagram, at least one that has survived into the church records. A few years ago the church volunteers recorded the headstones. Bruno's was not among those found.

Now, there are many unreadable headstones and markers of various sorts, so it is possible there is one for Bruno, but it is not possible to tell. I have taken a couple of pictures of the area I think is the oldest section with many unmarked and illegibly marked graves. I am not in any way certain this is the area we are hoping for. I will be happy to post them with an explanation of the situation if you prefer.

I am sorry I could not be more helpful.

That's great news! Thanks for the follow-up. I'll get over there this week.

Bruno Novak Ignaczak question
Hi Shane,
I have researched Bruno's grave site before and am certain there is no headstone. The church could not verify he is even buried there. It is NOT unusual to be missing a few names here and there in this business, as you know.

I will gladly go to the cemetery and photograph the area you indicate. I see a Michael N. Ignaczak is in Find a Grave as buried in St. Mary, as well. Judging from the dates he and Bruno could have been brothers. Unfortunately there is no marker for him, either.

Could you please share with me the source for your "single-grave #389 in the singles section" for Bruno? This could help a great deal with future research! I will contact the church this week for more information on the various sections.

Thank you for photographing the stones. Kim (Tink) started it, but she hasn't had the time to complete. She estimated about 1/3 left.

God Bless You!

Mabel Bickford Clark
I notice another Mabel Bickford Clark at Prospect Hill Cemetery with the same dates of birth and death. #70778668. Are you sure the gravestone you show is from Eastside?

You're welcome. I live very close to the cemetery so it is easy to check. Hope it is sunny tomorrow. Have a nice evening, Kathy
