grave photo requests
You have a request on here for a photo of the grave of Philura and Jessie Gray. I am hoping to fulfill it for you but am having troubles. The cemetery is very small and doesn't have an office. I have called the number on the fence several times and left messages but no one has called me back yet. Today I decided to walk the cemetery row by row to see if I could find any of the graves for the requests there. I have been in a lot of cemeteries and this is the worst maintained one I have ever seen and it's so small that there really is no excuse for it. If this is a family member buried there, I highly suggest you call and complain. The number is (708) 923-2203. You can't drive on the road that goes through. The grass is knee high. Trees, bushes and vines are very overgrown. I got at least a dozen mosquito bites just trying to walk through.
I am not giving up. I will keep making calls and I also have a call into the Village to see if they can tell me who owns the cemetery. I will do all that I can to get this photo for you and also let them know that their cemetery is badly in need of some tlc.
