Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Margaret Tomer Rummens.

In 2008, started to research my father's family: Lorenzo James Tomer. His mother's maiden name was Morningstar. My mother's family names were O'hare, Cunningham and Sherry (County Cork).

I've been building my family tree here and on Ancestry.com: Lorenzo James Tomer family.

I retired June 2014 from teaching in Chico, CA and Santa Cruz, CA.

I currently live in the Sacramento area.

RE: Joseph Knepfler #115021170
I did not even think about it being an "O". So that makes sense. As to the number of requests, it definitely varies. When I started working on the cemetery, there were around 900 requests. I've added around 6,000 memorials and around 13,000 photos, but I have barely scratched the surface. I usually work as a lawn mower. I mow the rows, and requests get fulfilled as I finish a section.

Here is a another map of the cemetery that shows where I have worked and photographed. So far, I have been the only to upload to BillionGraves.com for this cemetery, except for maybe a couple of photos:

https://billiongraves.com/cemetery/Oak-Woods-Cemetery-and-Confederate-Mound/180710#cemetery_id=180710&lim=0&num=20&order=asc&action=browse

If your section is O4, then it looks like I was on the opposite end of the cemetery from where you want the photo.

Anyway, good luck finding someone to help!

Hi Margaret,

Yes, unfortunately I am not in Chicago for a while. I also do not have anyone who does this type of work in Chicago as a resource for you. While I understand your niece's reservations about going into the area, I can assure you the cemetery is quite safe. I have visited many times, and in fact live only a mile or so away as the crow flies in Hyde Park. Now, I wouldn't recommend your niece walk down the street, but the cemetery is entirely walled off and has security, which she could have accompany her to the site if she feels unsafe. Now, this may in no way convince her, but the cemetery is safe.

As to your location on the memorial, you list him as in Sec. 04. Looking at the map, and from what I remember of the cemetery grounds, each section has a letter and a number, as in A1 or F4. Here is a link to a map I use: http://www.wwjohnston.net/famhist/gibson-johnston/Oakwoods%20Cemetery-Johnston%20marked.jpg

You might need to see if you can double-check his burial location so that someone who is doing the searching can find it easily enough. This is a massive cemetery.

Sorry I cannot help more, but if you have no luck, let me know in 2017!

Margaret I have his DC. That's why I'm not 100% that it is him. It makes sense that it is him but....

I am pretty sure, but working on proof. Harriet is my husband's '1st cousin once removed' according to my genealogical program - love that it figures it out.

Thanks

Netherton markers at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery
Hi Margaret,

I was unable to find markers for Myrtle and Sherman Netherton. I photographed all that I could find and will be adding them over the next couple of days.

I appreciate your work; and, generous spirit. *Thank-you" for the transfer.

I sincerely thank you for the transfer of the memorial for James B. Daubenbiss. Such a sad story.
.
I have updated the memorial with my (ongoing) research, to include newspaper articles that reported upon the sailing accident & the subsequent drownings. I found an additional article this afternoon.
.
I appreciate your dedication and Find-A-Grave work; and, your "generous spirit" in the transfer of this memorial. Peace & Blessings (CPM).
