RE: Granberrys Sunset Memorial Lawns

You asked last evening if I am related to these Granberrys. I'm not. I became aware of these memorials because Emma had been linked to one my ancestors who I knew had a daughter, Emma, and I knew that I had been able to locate her burial place in Texas. Your question regard their links to each other peaked my curiosity. I'm always interested where Granberrys might been be - they certainly wandered around the country. If you find anymore Granberrys, I would be interested in looking into history.

Thanks again for entering the memorials.

83564538 Phoebia Granberry
Good Morning,
I have entered edit requests for Phoebia Granberry to reflect the following information. She married Newland Jones Phelps and evidently divorced; although, I cannot find a record of the divorce. When Newland Jones Phelps registered for the WWII Draft, 1942 in Chicago, he did not list Phoebia or Ada Ann as the person who would always know his address. It appears, he married again and moved to Alabama where he is buried beside his second wife.

Name: Newland Phelps
Age: 24
Birth Date: 1888
Spouse's Name: Phoebe Granberry
Spouse's Age: 22
Spouse's Birth Date: 1890

Event Place: Chicago, Cook, Illinois, USA

1920 Census Chicago Ward 25, Cook (Chicago), Illinois, USA
Newland J Phelps Head M age 33 born in Kentucky
Phoebia G Phelps Wife F age 28 born in Tennessee
Ada N Phelps Daughter F age 1 born in Pennsylvania

RE: 83564536 Adam Granberry
No, none are related to me that I know of now, but ancestry research has taught me one thing, "one never knows what is to be found".
I just enjoy the research; I have info for Phobia and Charles C. which I will send tomorrow. Good night and thanks for entering memorial in Find A Grave; it's my favorite of all research sites.

In my previous message, I omitted Adam's father's name as it is listed on the death record. It is Jack Granberry. No mother's name is listed.

In addition to what was sent for Emma Granberry, I have been able to locate the following info for Adam Granberry buried at Sunset Memorial Lawns in Northbrook, Cook County, Illinois.

RE: Emma Granberry 83564537
I have been able to locate the following info on Emma, Phoebia, Adam Granberry buried at Sunset Memorial Lawns in Northbrook, IL. As is often the case, it appears the birth year is incorrect on the headstone. I have entered edits to reflect the information on the census record since it is taken from an original record. If you choose to use the following in her biography, please, feel free to do so.

1900 Census Precinct 2 Town of Lake Chicago city Ward 30, Cook, Illinois, United States
Name: Adam Granberry
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Martial Status: Married
Race: Black
Relationship to Head of Household: Head
Years Married: 3
Birth Date: Oct 1874
Birthplace: Tennessee
Marriage Year (Estimated): 1897
Father's Birthplace: North Carolina
Mother's Birthplace: North Carolina

Adam Granberry Head M age 26 born Tennessee
Emma Granberry Wife F age 30 born Kentucky
Phoebe Granberry Sister F age 11 F born Tennessee

From the digital copy of the original census the following is gathered:
Adam's birthdate is Oct 1874 day laborer
Emma's birth date is Dec 1870 laundress
Phoebe birth date July 1889 at school

Emma and Adam have been married three years and have no children.
Emma's Father and Mother were both born in Kentucky.
Contradictory to what is listed for the Adam, Phoebe's Father and Mother are listed as both being born in Tennessee.

Name: Emma Granberry
Event Type: Death
Event Date: 05 Dec 1959
Event Place: Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, USA
Age: 82
Martial Status: Widowed
Race: Black

Saturday Cove Cemetery
I have to tell you how beautiful that cemetery is after it was rejuvenated. To see the headstones look so beautiful..that type of care will only help them to last a long, long time. I don't know if you were part of it..but wanted to ask (if you were) if there is a list of the burials. Thank you, Wendy
