Can you have the memorials for George and Helga Ellis deleted? They are not in the correct cemetery per the message below and that poster has made memorials for their location in Blue Island. Thanks

George and Helga Ellis
I have determined that George and Helga Ellis are at Oak Hill Cemetery in Blue Island, Illinois. I have confirmed this with the office. They will be sending me a map showing where the burials are located. I hope to stop by and photograph them on Friday. See

George and Helga Ellis

Recently I agreed to take pictures of George and Helga Ellis' headstone/s. In preparation I contacted Gary Ostrowski who is the General Assistance Director at Downers Grove Township where the cemetery records are kept. Gary has no record of George and Helga being buried at the cemetery and has turned to a woman, Carol, at the local museum for some assistance. They have done some research and turned up the obituary for Helga which says she's buried at Westside Cemetery. They also found information on her mother, Emeline Couzens who died in 1895 in Grays Lake. There was no burial information in Emeline's obit. They also went online and found the memorials for George and Helga at Find A Grave but since you put them up you already know everything about this source.

It is my understanding that Gary and Carol are going to continue to look into the burial question for George and Helga but I just wanted you to know where we are with this. If they are able to identify a location I will take the requested pictures. If they can't find anything I'll eventually record it as a problem on Find A Grave. If you haven't already tried, you might check with Westside Cemetery to see if Helga is there. If it's a local cemetery (I'm not familiar with it) I would be happy to go there for the photo.

Thanks for your patience,
Denise Jones
