Bio and Links
I am a relatively new genealogist but very willing to help others in finding lost graves. I can easily do cemeteries in and around the Greater Chicago area as well as Northern Indiana. The surnames that I am specifically interested in are Whitacre, Householder, Price, Imus, Pletcher, Fleming, Ransley, Croucher, Bottorff, and Brothers. If I can help anyone please ask, just keep in mind that we are in a deep freeze 3-4 months of the year, so not willing to shovel snow for a picture :-)

RE: David Bottorff Jr (1805-1887)
I'm sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your question. My husband just had heart valve surgery, and the genealogy research has been put on the back burner.

I will try to attach the information I have on David Bottorff, Sr. As you will note, there is no verification shown. I received it a number of years ago from a Bottorff descendant.

RE: Oak Woods Cemetery
Hi there, Yes I go alone and feel safe. I usually go in the morning around 8 a.m. to get it out the way early. The cemetery opens at 8:30 a.m. but I have always caught the gates open at 8 a.m. and no one has ever said anything. If you need to go in the office for a look up or maps they don't open until 8:30 a.m. I've done it for awhile now that I have many of the section maps and can get around pretty well in the cemetery. It is really well maintained and with beautiful grounds. If you would like to meet me there one day just let me know. There is enough requests for an army of photographers lol. I am also female.

How have you been doing? Marji and I have been in contact for a few weeks now and I am getting caught up with Chapter 6 for Henry Huffman. I would love to compare notes and get back into working on this. Hope to hear from you soon and getting all caught up.

RE: Mahlon Whitacre
Yes, I'm sorry it is not. I assume one of those broken stones in the photo is probably his.

Making some connections.

Thought since I am only distantly related, those memorials belong with someone closer to them. Let me know if there are others. Joel
