Bio and Links
My search for members of my family expanded to include the men with whom they served during the Civil War and WW1. Those units being:

113th Illinois Volunteer Infantry (Civil War)

1st Illinois Light Artillery (Civil War)

5th Machine Gun Battalion, 2nd Division, AEF. (WW1)

For anyone interested, I've added a virtual cemetery of members of the "Forlorn Hope" volunteer storming party, which assaulted Vicksburg on 22 May 1863. Known survivors were awarded the Medal of Honor thirty-one years after the event. Among them are four veterans of the 113th IL Vol. Infantry.

My family lines of interest include: Baker, Banker, Eliasberg, Kaaz, Kramer, Leoprick/Loeprick, Moore, Ohnesorge, Schmeling, Schwartz, Silverstone/Silvestone, Torbet/Torbett.

My wife's family lines of interest are: Hauschild, Jackson, Champion, Geschke, Sims, Staley, Watts, Weems, Wilson.

If you call Elmwood Cemetery and Mausoleum at 708- 453-0273 and:
1. Ask if your photo request person has a headstone / grave marker.
2. If there is a headstone / grave marker ask for the section, block, lot and grave number.
3. If you send that information to me, Susan (#48964989) I will go there and fulfill your photo request. Of course any other Find A Grave volunteer can also fulfill your request if you then add the headstone location information to your photo request page.
Good Luck.
Susan

Photo Request
Hello, I'm I Find a Grave volunteer who lives near Memorial Cemetery in Skokie. There is some confusion about taking photos at this cemetery, but I have taken a number in the last few years. What I can't do is look up the location for you. If you call the cemetery 847-864-5061 and then post the location in your request, I will attempt to fulfill it. Some folks have reported to me that the cemetery will not give out the location via phone. This is hard to understand if you are a family member. I would prefer to have the location posted rather than sent to me via email. Susanne D

5th MG BN Co. C
Can you please help with this 2nd Div 5th MG BN?
Is there a roster for Company C 5th MG BN?
This came from the Wolfe/Wilcox family in MN. I found that her Grandfather Harry C Wilcox's grave, the memorial nots SFC QM Corps, the World War 1.
Could Harry have served in the 5th MG BN as Pvt. discharged, then later as SFC in QM Corps, and that was his last rank which was put on his Govt. marker instead of 5th MG BN. The tunic, pants, and garrison hat have Wilcox written on them.

BUT, the tunic also has initial G L and service number 2,787,666? It could have originally belonged to G L.

Can you please try and help me preserve this history. Pictures enclosed.
Thanks in advance

Also what's your interest in 5th MG BN?
