Bio and Links
Bio Photo The goal of my FAG entries are to help others searching for their family to find a ancestoral burial and other family information.

The postings made here basically come from two sources. Most of the postings are from extensive family genealogical records. For those with family connections I have posted bio info that focuses on the person and shared some of their available family info.

The balance of the burial postings are for individuals for which I have no ties. These postings are primarily from cemetery censuses with a added focus on veterans. I've also posted memorials for unrelated individuals that shared some of my ancestral surnames.

Hopefully these postings may help you make a connection.

I appreciate the opportunity that Find A Grave gives everyone to learn and share. If you want to review or add to what is already shown, or discuss posting please contact me.

RE: Mary Hannemann
The info for Mary on states that she was buried in Forest Park, Illinois, not Forest Home Cemetery.

I looked at the burials for December 1928 for Forest Home (and Waldheim German) Cemetery, and I did not see her name listed.

There are three other major cemeteries in Forest Park: Concordia, Waldheim Jewish, and Woodlawn. If you contact them hopefully they can tell you if she is buried at one of them.

Sometimes records are missing, so you can also check with Forest Home at 773-287-0772. This cemetery does not assist volunteer photographers so the only way to know if she is actually buried here is to contact the office. Since this cemetery has over 150,000 burials it is nearly impossible to fulfill a photo request without the burial plot.

RE: Mary Hannemann
Please contact the cemetery to obtain the burial plot (Section and Lot numbers). This cemetery does not help photo volunteers.

Phone: 773-287-0772

Most of the reason that there are over 300 unfilled photo requests at the cemetery is that the volunteer photographers cannot obtain the burial plots.

Hardly anyone photographers at this cemetery because they choose to not be helpful to those of us seeking to help you and other photo requestors. I still photograph here, but I cannot get the plot myself.

Thank you! Ace

Sorry- I should have included the memorial # of the duplicate entry for Alice Glover. It is:

Your entry is (and our shared ancestor!):

It looks as though another contributor has entered in a duplicate entry on Alice Glover. Here is the link:
She has some of the information wrong (ie BD) but enough to see it is the same person. I am contacting you (instead of contributor Linda) because I am very familiar with your work and trust your findings. She does have more info about Alice's 2nd husband William Vestel and the children from that marriage.
Thank you!

Isaac Davis.
Ref memorial 313718546 for Isaac Davis. I believe you have Isaac's grandmother (Hannah James Davis 132221225) listed as his mother. According to you memorial it should be Nancy Ann Lewis Davis 32876429. Can your review and correct if necessary. Thanks

RE: Dic. of National Bio.
The list of sources they supply for each entry is really helpful. Good luck in your research.

John Wilde at Wherwell
There are multiple published accounts of his burial at Wherwell. Try looking him up in the incredibly useful Dictionary of National Biography, available at most libraries and online. I've seen at least two other books myself that confirm his burial there.

Susan Forbes 100085384
I believe it is probable that according to her memorial #100085384, Susan Forbes is buried in the wrong cemetery. I believe the correct cemetery would be the Stokely Cemetery in Newland, Pasquotank County as all available evidence would indicate this. Her death certificate states she was living in Newland Township at the time of her death and only that she was to be buried in the "Stokly" Cemetery.In the 1920 Pasquotank Census, she is living in the household of a cousin, W. James Gregory, in Newland (This Gregory line goes back to Rhoda Stokely, dt. of Isaac Stokely and Lydia Albertson, who m. Isaac B. Gregory.) William James Gregory is buried in the Stokely Cemetery in Newland as well as his wife, Anna Turner Gregory. It would stand to reason, since she had no other family, that she would be buried in the cemetery with her relatives.
