RE: Joseph Lyman Silsbee
Huh. Small world. I took a peek at your site and, since I'm a beekeeper at Garfield Park, I've spent a lot of time looking at their Power House and wondering what its story was. Thanks for the link.

RE: Joseph Lyman Silsbee
Good luck on your book--I look forward to reading it. I give tours of the FLW Home & Studio, and briefly mention Mr. Silsbee in my spiel. Maybe you can confirm that one of Silsbee's specialties was the shingle-style or Seaside house--which is the style of Mr. Wright's first home.
People ask me what shingles are.

Joseph Lyman Silsbee
Hi Chris,
Thanks for your note. From what I found out, by calling Graceland cemetery in Chicago, was that J. L. Silsbee was cremated at Graceland and his ashes were given to his son. So I assume the son took the ashes to NY. I left up the memorial until I had more info, which you provided. I'll delete it now.
Funny. Someone else contacted me yesterday about Arthur Heun, another Chicago architect whose final resting place I couldn't track down.
Thanks again for your help.
