specializing in the lost and forgotten...I only try to manage ones that are related to me in some way, just becasue there are so many singles and couples with no children, infants lost and forgotten...BUT, will help others with their own lost and forgotten if I can. Many of these people are great people who did much to make the world a better place, but have become lost and forgotten, because they have no descendents keeping them known. They were productive and contributing members of the world.

RE: Joseph M. Haney photos
The 5 stones in the Haney plot all have one name inscribed. Cemetery records show that Julianna is buried there but no stone for her is visible. There is space in the first row that could be where she is located. They are buried in the Summit section of the cemetery in lot 292. Continued luck with your research. Perhaps I can be of help at another time. Pat

RE: A little confused
You wrote, "From the giant photo where abouts he would be buried, since there is no headstone."

He is buried near where the diamond shaped
marker is in the center of the photo.

You wrote, "Is this the family plot and there are other Kingman's buried in this section and Lot."

I do not know if this is a family plot, but
my initial guess would be that it is not.
I base this on the fact that this section
is almost completely individual graves, and
there are very few grave markers and no
monuments throughout the section.

If there is a Kingman family burial plot I
have no way of finding that. This cemetery
does not help photo volunteers, and each
lookup that the cemetery does costs $5.
You can call the cemetery at the phone
number at 708-366-1900.

If you have other Kingman family member
names and the dates that they died that
you know are buried in this cemetery I can
try and look them up in the burial book
that I do have access to, but only if the
burial is before 1981. The burial book is
not easy to access, so I only research
burials two or three times a year.

Fosters @ Glen Abbey
This cemetery is mapped by lots (for individual graves), sections, and blocks. The blocks are the largest divisions, the sections (usually containing 6 lots) divide up the blocks into smaller areas. I didn't see any other Fosters in the immediate area, but there were some empty spaces which could be unmarked graves. I would be glad to look up other names you want to give me in the cemetery transcript at the library (it covers through 1999), if you have some that you think might be there. Anyone who died in or after 2000, would need to be asked for at the cemetery office. I do go there every 3-4 weeks, or you could phone them with inquiries.

RE: Still searching for Freeborn's two young children
Paul says you are very welcome for the photos. He lives in that area
and photographs countless gravestones including entire cemeteries in five counties. He does not belong to the site any longer. We work as
a team because Paul deems it a lonely hobby, though he has a great rapport with many caretakers and town clerks and historians as a result of his endeavor as well as happy encounters with gravesite visitors he chats with at length in the cemeteries. As far as finding
William and his siblings is concerned, Paul says he thinks you have done an adequate search for them and while he wishes he could find them for you, he thinks it unlikely he could add anything to your thorough research.

RE: Thanks for Ellen Hinckley Hyde photos
You are very welcome. Paul took the photos for you. He said there are
no other Hibbard or Hyde stones at that location. When he contacted the former village historian for the family photos it was in behalf of

RE: Peek
Your tree is private, but when you make corrections to census records, that is public, and I recognized your initials. Same for the correction you made to the court record for William after he died. I believe the transcription was for 'William T. Peek' and you made a correction for 'William F. Peek.' About Evergreen, not too long ago they did have online records for burials and just about the time that I discovered it.....they discontinued it! I was sooooo upset. I called and asked why they had cut the link and the lady said that they were getting swamped with calls and that people were confused about the burial number. I wish they had kept the records available because I learned a lot from looking at them......about Leonora Peek, for example. Oh well.

Just had a look on and see that you have made corrections there and have seen Williams court records after his death. You only have to find his son Andrew now. Looks like you have good resources for your search. Little Marie
