William Elmer Gardner's death certifcate states he is buried in Oakwood in Wilmington. There is a family plot, lot 270, however, there is no tombstone for William Elmer Gardner. The records for this cemetery were destroyed in a fire. Sarah "Sadie" Hurley Gardner, William's wife, was buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Willmington, IL according to her death certificate. There is no Tombstone. It is a family plot, but, there are only 3 tombstones: one for Julius and Ruth Gardner, one for their grandson, Charles A Gardner(son of Julius B and Hellen Gardner), and Roselle, Daughter of Julius B and Hellen Gardner. Julius B and Hellen Frances Gardner do not have tombstones. Julius B Gardner is the son of Julius Gardner. There is a big mystery as to when Julius B Gardner died. It was after 1898 and before 1911...there's no death certificate and no records at the cemetery. He's mentioned in the local newspaper one time in 1898 and then by 1911 Hellen is living in Joliet as a widow.
They had 3 children: William Elmer, Walter William, and Edward Leslie Gardner.
