Bio Photo In tracing my own family tree I have taken several photos of my family gravestones. I recently revisited an old cemetery and found that one of the stones I needed a re-take of, due to an annoying shadow, was now buried under grass and barely locatable(in only 2 years!). That experience has sparked me to check the cemeteries posted at Find A Grave for cemeteries in my area that need photos added. I have also begun to add names (memorials) to the cemeteries at Find A Grave as I go through my photos and find someone(family member or not) that hasn't been listed yet.

Since you are reading this, I hope it means that I added a name or a photo of someone in your tree. I am gladly volunteering my efforts to help others find their family graves as several Find A Grave volunteer contributors have helped me. Therefore, I grant permission to save a copy of any of my photos posted on for your personal use in your database or your personal on-line tree. In addition, I will gladly transfer management of a memorial(unless they are part of my family tree) per Find A Grave guidelines. -Judi

RE: Irene Cash at Ft. Sheridan

Thanks for the offer of transfer. I'd be happy to have her, but it's not necessary. After I saw the memorial, I started looking for an obituary but haven't found one. I'm slowly making my way through area funeral homes' online sites.

Irene Cash at Ft. Sheridan

I had the delight of meeting Mrs. Cash one Memorial Day. She was visiting her husband's grave, and I was visiting my son's. We chatted for a bit and found out we lived in adjoining towns.

She was quite old a few years ago, and I've been wondering how she was. Thanks for posting her memorial.

RE: Louise Niehuss
That is a very good idea. Thank you. I believe that Marvin was probably living with his daughter at the time of his death, and possible when she died. He was quite aged when he passed.

Louise Niehuss
Marvin's second wife - Find A Grave Memorial# 165142416. I spoke with someone at the cemetery, who looked up the burial. She advised that there was no record of Louise being buried there - she has a space and her name on the bench, but the space is empty. I was able to locate her obituary, from a reference librarian at Ann Arbor Library. This is what she sent me:
"I scanned the obituary of Louise Niehuss and have added it to our Oldnews site here:

With regards to her place of burial, I contacted Washtenong Memorial Park, where Marvin L. Niehuss is buried. They told me that Louise has a spot there that is empty. They also mentioned that someone else had recently contacted them about Louise - I laughed and assumed that was you! I dug around online to see where her first husband was buried, and found that he rests in Arlington National Cemetery. So now I am also wondering where Louise is. I put in a call to the Muehlig Funeral Chapel, as her obituary says they handled her arrangements. The staff person I spoke to said her records are held at an offsite location, and that someone would call me back with information on the whereabouts of her remains. As of this morning, I still haven't heard back from Muehlig. Perhaps you can put a call into them as well and help speed the process of finding Louise...?"

I also called the funeral home and was advised that they only took care of the cremation and ashes were turned over to the family. Thank you for the photos. They are beautiful.

I'm so glad you created her memorial and linked her to Marvin. I'm not related to them, either. Transfer is your preference.

I would be happy to get copies of their graves.

Hi Julie,

Maybe, you can contact

Brust Funeral Home, 415 N. Gary Ave.,
Carol Stream, IL


Heritage Presbyterian Church, 965 N. Kuhn Rd., Carol Stream, IL

I personally knew Eric as he was in my high school freshman class before he moved somewhere else as his father was in the Air Force. By interment private, I assume he had a burial site. I do not know whether his body was cremated and disposed elsewhere or donated to a medical school.

I assumed that he was buried in the same cemetery as his parents. He has two children whom I do not know. If you can find them, maybe you will get the
information that you need.

You added a photo to Sarah Taylor's memorial 144134251 at Fort Sheridan Cemetery.
I am going to delete that memorial because there was another one created before mine, mistakenly under the name Sarah Tay. I have sent in an "edit" request to correct the name. Your photo shows the name more clearly (the L in Taylor is missing).
Thank you.

Hi Judi,

I am not sure what the problem is. Klara is not Emma. My burial information comes from her grand daughter and I do not know where she got her information. The name was Goldrick not Goldrich. It could be coincidence or it is possible the stone cutter mistook a k for an h and a year later mistook the r for an n on James stone. I have found on more then one occasion things written in stone can be incorrect. Unfortunately records are hard to come by from 1880 to 1900. I will have to dig a little deeper. I will let you know what I find. Thank you for pointing this out to me.

RE: Ft. Sheridan
If you are on Facebook, join the group called Find A Grave. On the home page, click on the tab right under the cover photo that says Files. Scroll down to a document called, How can I get a list of interments, memorials without photos, memorials with photos?

Click on that and read the article. I have followed the directions with success but have not done it enough to describe it.

If you're not on FB, let me know and I'll see if I can email you a copy of it.
