RE: Louisiana Hensley
I'm sorry I have no information on the source of the name "White". I created the memorial, but transferred it to Mary Gilmore, who added basically all of the bio, which is very interesting. It sounds from her information that she is a descendant or has done considerable research on the family. If you haven't, I suggest you contact her for her source re the Americanization of the name to White -- good luck, wish I could be helpful.

Roger,

You mentioned that "The Oak Hill in Palos changed its name 3 times since it opened in the 1800s." Do you know the names? Would you or can I send that info to the forums so they can update the cemetery bio with that information?

No, I do not know much about the Blue Island Oak Hill. I would just call them (708-385-0132). They have people there during the day and they have helped me lookup to see if people are buried there before. Not sure how good their records are and how many times they have changed ownership / name.

This is from their website:
History of Oak Hill Cemetery II

Oak Hill Cemetery II was incorporated on Jan. 24, 1902, by a group of gentlemen of Swedish descent. It was originally established to serve Swedish families on the south side of Chicago. The cemetery was dedicated on Oct. 19, 1902, followed shortly by the first burial on Oct. 26, 1902. The Oak Hill Cemetery Chapel-Mausoleum was built in 1921 and the chapel was dedicated May 1922. It was erected by the E. P. Strandberg Co. The architect was Conny Ramberg. Although the building itself is impressive with its stained glass windows, huge pillars, marble interior, crypts and niches, it is the sentiment on the granite above the entrance door that leaves the message the association chose to express: "May this temple ever proclaim liberty in religion. The existence of an omni present God, the immortality of the soul."

RE: Alex Deak
Roger, If you have family knowledge that it is the Palos Park Oak Hill then it must be right. The directory must be wrong. I would just add a comment in the memorial about your source is from the family. Since the person is not on the directory, there is no location in the cemetery so no way to look closer at any old markers.

If you even remotely suspect it could be the other Oak Hill in the Worth/Blue Island/Chicago area, I would suggest calling them and see if they show a burial.

Thanks for looking into this.
