Kortum/Kostbade Headstones
Hi Betty,

Today I went to Concordia Cemetery in Forest Park Illinois. There were two headstones on the lot. I posted the first to Wilhelm "William" Kortum and Friedricke Kortum. The second is quite old and I can only make out one name although I believe there are two on the stone. I've posted the picture to Carl Kostbade but others could be listed on the stone as well. I won't post the second picture to any of the others but I wanted you to know.

Thanks,
Denise Jones

Hi Betty,

I think you have a connection to Martin. So I want to let you know that I added a photo of him to his memorial:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=67805207

The caption contains a link to his naturalization documents. That's where I got the photo, which I repaired and adjusted for the memorial.

A added as much of his place of birth as was possible. But Martin's birth town of Brankovice is not in FindAGrave's drop-down menu under the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic.

I have no connection to Martin, I just find things online and pass them on :)

Bessie Zacek Uridel
Hello, back in 2008 you requested a photo for Bessie Uridel in Bohemian National Cemetery in Chicago, but someone removed the request in Aug/Sep of 2014 before it was fulfilled. I am happy to let you know that I have found her grave and have posted a photo of her headstone on her memorial for you along with her husband John's. I made a memorial for him as well and will be happy to transfer him to you if you so wish it. Hope it helps.

RE: Reminder for Louis, Bertha, & Ida Koehn
Yes, the location you posted is very helpful. I can even picture the approximate place they are buried.

Can you please add this information to the individual memorials?

Once the snow and cold are gone I will venture to the cemetery to take photos for you. This will probably not be until late next month or early April. Ace

Reminder for Louis, Bertha, & Ida Koehn
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Could you combine the two newspaper articles into one? I want to put the back of the stone that lists all of his ancestors, but there are too many pictures. Thanks.

Gayle Ann.
