"The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost." ~Arthur Schopenhauer|
If I have added a grave that needs corrections or additions please let me know. Transfers for families are always considered!
I was born in Elgin, Illinois. I currently live in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
I have always had a fascination with cemeteries and now that I am working on my genealogy I have an excuse to take photo's of gravestones.
Family names I am researching are: Harris,Hausburg, Huber,Opitz. Goodman,Vandermaar, Kuizenga, Hansen, Aurand, Markham,Samuelson, Sund, Eberle, Siebenthal, Sinn, Merz, Beschorner, Benz, Boncosky, Nesler, Traub, Ballew, Carter, English, Sims, Schmidt,
"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness, the tender mercies of its people, their loyalty to high ideals, and their regard for the laws of the land."
- Eighteenth-century British statesman William Gladstone

|Duane Warren||Can you Help with Beschorner Burial Place|
From: DuaneW@livinghopechurch.com I am forwarding from:

Dear Duane, I have spent the last 13 years restoring Shabbona Grove Cemetery outside of Shabbona IL. and I'm happy to report it's 99% complete. Now that I'm retired and past the age where I should be wrasseling gravestones I have started putting photos of all of them on Find A Grave. My problem is as I go thru the find a grave entries I have found others have " added " people to the cemetery that aren't buried there ! Nice photos of gravestones only I know those folks are not in the cemetery I was involved in restoring ! So now I have to find out where those folks belong ! One couple that has shown up is Ernest and Florence Beschorner. I used ancestry.com to locate people with an interest in them and your name and e mail popped up.
Do you know for a certainty where they are buried ? If you do could you be so kind as to help me out ? Thanks so much . Jim Stewart Shabbona IL.

No, no relation ... I just live close to Bluff City Cemetery and Lakewood Memorial in Elgin and enjoy taking pictures of the headstones. If I had an unlimited data plan I'd be able to look them up while I was walking around the cemetery to see if they were already in Find A Grave ... lol ... would save me a lot of time, I suppose! My parents and daughter are buried at Lakewood but I find the headstones at Bluff City much easier to photograph (since they usually aren't half buried under the grass!) I spent over 30 minutes the other day "uncovering" 2 grave sites that had photo requests so I could take the pictures. I was amazed I was even able to locate them.

Happy to do the transfer, just as others have made similar transfers to us.

The Corrections have been made, thanks for the info. Are you related to her? I can transfer her memorial to you if you wish.
Thank you for updating Adeline.
It was only for informational purposes; I am not related.

Noticed on one of your reported photo problems that you were documenting Crown Hill cemetery. I've just started mowing the rows taking photos and have 2/3 finished section 11. I would like to coordinate this with you so we aren't duplicating ourselves. If you have completed any section(s) please let me know.
|Deb McCallister||RE: photos|
That is fine. Have a good day!
|Marie Thurman - Vann||RE: Wesley M Davenport|
Thank you for your thoughtfulness!
|Marie Thurman - Vann||Wesley M. Davenport|
I noticed that his birth and death dates are not there in Bluff Cemetery only the years of birth and death, I am able to provide that for this site. He was born in Cohoes, New York on June 1,1872 and died December 31, 1927 in Boone County, IL. in the chiropractor's office about pain in neck. They don't know what happened in that chair but there was an inquiry about his death. His middle name was Maurice and his son was Harry Maurice Davenport buried at Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis, MO under the name of Hal Davenport/ Hal, my grandfather and Wesley my Great grandfather. Please add this to his memorial. He is buried with second wife Marie, tombstone says she was born 1878-1836. They had no children. I see her name on his headstone but have not found their marriage certificate after my grandmother passed . Wesley's first wife was Hattie E. Rolfe who died in Harlingen TX, in a kitchen fire that my grandfather Harry "Hal" tried to save her by wrapping her in a rug but could not save her.
Thank you for all the work you have done for so many families. You are appreciated.
