RE: Oak Crest Cemetery, DuPage County, IL
BB, Sorry, Not related. Some family lives in area we went cemetery hopping one year and I fell in love with that particular Cemetery. It is great that it is looking so well. Thanks, Lynn

The photos are great and Thank You for a adding them. I was there about 13 or 14 years ago and it looks like the cemetery has been taken care of since then. It looks good and the pictures are great. Thanks, Lynn

Please disregard my request for a transfer of my cousin Bob's Memorial that you set up on Jul 11, 2009,
Find A Grave Memorial# 73606500

The more I thought about it, the brain finally kicked in. I set his memorial up on 5 Jan 2008, see Find A Grave Memorial# 23763778.

Having said this, please delete the duplicate memorial you set up for him.

Thank you very much,

Would it be okay to use your grave photos for my husband's family tree, provided I cite you as the source?

I saw your note on Albert's grave. I too would love to find out more about her. The Adler family keeps saying she is buried here at Forest Lawn but I have not been able to locate her grave. I have her father as Frederich but don't have much else...

RE: TerHaar
Hi! I am happy to share what I have. My relevant connection is to the Granacher line. Ottilia (nee Granacher) Rodenbach TerHaar was a second wife to John A. TerHaar, father of Louis and Catherine.

BTW, don't go by in this area.. they have it all wrong. Because Eugene Wellington Farrar was the first white child born in Dupage County Illinois, you can look him up. The family history can also be found if you look up Downer's Grove IL because they were one of the first families there.

You can contact me at
