These gentlemen are buried in an area of Oak Ridge Cemetery marked by a memorial from the "Chicago Theatrical Protective Union, Local No. 2, Organized March 15, 1887 Lest We Forget". Sadly, it seems someone forgot. I have been trying to find information on this organization.

When there is information available on Ancestry.com that I feel is accurate, I have added it. I feel bad that there never seems to be flowers on any of these graves.

So far all I know is that it had offices on the 16th floor of the Burnham Building, 160 N. LaSalle Street in Chicago in September of 1933 and in the building located at 32 W. Randolph Street in Chicago in August of 1950.

If anyone has information, please contact me or feel free to add it yourself. Thanks… Lynn aka/SixthSense
