Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Chicago, Illinois and am working on records for my father's and mother's families primarily.
I enjoy taking photographs of grave sites for photo requests. My priorities are sites with a location provided then by request date. Many places have requests that are several years old. You are welcome to use any of the photos I post as you wish. Requests for photo files or transfers are welcome. Email or use the edit tab on a memorial.

Please provide a location in the cemetery for your photo request. Contacting the cemetery is usually successful at obtaining a location. Info about the presence of a grave marker may also be available and is helpful. Locating unmarked graves can be very difficult.

If you want a photo of mine removed from your memorial, or have higher quality photos than the ones I posted, please feel free to post them, then let me know, and I will remove mine.

Bob - thank you for the information regarding Mrs. Zang. I had family notes that she was at Graceland, but not that she had been cremated.

There were only 20 crematories in the US at that time, so it is not surprising that Graceland was one of them.

I have changed her place of disposition and credited you for that information. Thanks again for your help; it is appreciated.
Cheers~ Shirleen

Agnes Fogel
So very happy to find your photo of Agnes' tombstone on my arrival home. I have been away for the holidays.
Thank You so much!!!!!!!!!!
Can you tell me if her husband is buried with her or in the same cemetery?
His name was Jacob Philip Fogel and he died on January 30, 1954.
He did marry again after Agnes died, so he may be buried with his second wife. I have never been able to locate his burial location.
If you can learn any information from Agnes' grave site or the cemetery office about Jacob Fogel, it would be greatly appreciated.
I will hope to hear from you again.
You can reach me at

Thank-you so much for taking the time to photograph Katherine's headstone, as well as the setting - she was my GGGrandmother and it means a lot to me and my family. Blessings to you :-)
