I have always been fascinated by cemeteries and I enjoy using this website as an excuse to indulge my interest, help people out, and learn about history. If you have any requests for Chicago area pictures please let me know and I will do what I can to fulfill them. Also, if you find any mistakes in the memorials I have posted please feel free to correct me. If you are a family member you are welcome to ownership of any memorial I have created.
Robert Kinzie I too am extremely interested in the Kinzie family members of early Chicago, as my 4th great grandfather was John Kinzie, first white settler of Chicago who lived across the Chicago River from Fort Dearborn. His first common law wife was Margaret Mckenzie, Kinzie, Hall who was my 4th great grandmother. Their first born son William was my 3rd great grandfather, buried in Nebraska. I wish there was an actual painting of John Kinzie, so I could see what he looked like. Thanks for your help and I appreciate anything else you can do for me concerning the Kinzies, Clyburns, John Kinzie Clark and Elizabeth Kinzie Miller who married Samuel Miller and died at Fort Dearborn.

RE: David Kennison photo request thank you for replying. I am new to find the grave and was having a very hard time trying to save pictures. I still have not been able to do it on my phone. It would be great if you could email me copies of the photos you took. My email is email@example.com. I appreciate your assistance and thank you for your time. Jim Kenison
RE: Sherman Booth. Hi Don, sorry for the delay. No, I have no more information regarding Sherman Booth, just that he had donated his cemetery plot and moved to Chicago. If you can find him, great! I couldn't even tell you which cemetery he would be buried at. It's been a while since I had talked to anyone at the office regarding him. Regards, Nadeen
RE: J Ogden Armour Don, take a look at the FAQ questions. I think one of them address that. I believe you can write firstname.lastname@example.org and in the email put the memorial Id (url) and then paste the bio. I believe that's how it works. I thought about doing a bio for him, but I just haven't had time. He's a relative so I should find the time, but bio's take some work. Good luck. I haven't had much luck lately getting memorials designated "famous".
Thanks so much for finding, getting plot location and the two photos of her headstone at Wunders Cemetery. You were the first to find it! Two other people before you said they couldn't find the stone and one time the cemetery said she wasn't buried there. I knew differently because of the book "A Transcription of Wunders Cemetery" by the Chicago Genealogy Society. So thanks again for such a great job since I heard that the Lots aren't marked or poorly marked!
