Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in cemeteries began at an early age. My family lived near Chicago's Graceland Cemetery, and my older sister used to walk me through there in my baby carriage. As a pre-teen living close to Calvary Cemetery in Evanston I'd occasionally visit to tidy up old neglected graves. When I began to research my family in the 1970s locating and photographing their memorials became a priority. The discovery of RAOGK led me to volunteer to take photos for others that were too far away for them to do. And the fantastic, Find A Grave site continues to fuel my interest in adding to their records. It also has turned out to be a great way of making contact and discovering new family members.

RE: John Batchelder
John Keene Batchelder died at the scene of the car/truck accident on 06 Feb 1958 about five miles north of Jackson, Washington Co, Wisconsin. His son John Dudley Batchelder was driving. John Dudley died the next day of his injuries in the car/truck accident at the hospital in Watertown, Dodge, Wisconsin. Sorry, it is confusing with them both having similar names and dying a day apart. From the newspaper article it reads as if John Dudley Batchelder was driving and ran a stop sign and his car was hit by a truck. Debi

I have no issue deleting duplicates. It does not matter if you are a "family member," since the newer is always the dupe, regardless, and since I use spreadsheets, there's no cause to take it personally, as you apparently have. Also, my dates are often burial dates, which will tend to cause dupes if there are removals, in particular. I'd prefer you no longer write me, and address your issues to admins in the future. This is my recreation and I don't do it to receive snotty emails from "family members" of people who died 120 years ago.

Thank you.

RE: Homeyer Memorials
Hi Audrey,
Thanks for getting back so quickly. I have just copied your headstone photos with credit to you and attached them to the memorials for William and Sophia Homeyer.

You may now delete these duplicates #90155505 (William) and #90155587 (Sophia). I will then transfer my original ones to the particular Homeyer descendant.

Thanks for all your help in this matter.

Have a blessed day.

RE: Homeyer Memorials
Hi Audrey,
Thanks so much for your prompt reply. I can certainly understand why some memorials are duplicated. I, myself, have been guilty of mistakenly duplicating a memorial.

Regarding the two Homeyer memorials, with your permission I would like to copy your photos and then I can attach them to the earlier memorials I made. I would make a notation giving you proper credit for each of the photos. After doing so, I will then transfer these to the Homeyer family descendant.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks, Wendy

RE: Dimock/Dimick
The date on the pediment of the mausoleum is correct. According to my sources at the cemetery, the construction of the mausoleum began in 1895. Traditionally the date on the Green-Wood Cemetery mausoleum exteriors is the year the building project was started. There are may possible reasons for the family not moving the remains into the mausoleum until 1896.

I also requested the 3 duplicate memorials be deleted. The had been made using the re-interment date of 1896.
