I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas. Seek information about Mrs. Vandercook's ancestor, Dr. Andrew James Park (Auburn NY 1826/1916 Oak Park, Illinois),Harvard Medical School Class of 1852.Dr. Park was Commissioner of the Palestine Exhibition Company of Chicago, which produced three units of JERUSALEM ON THE DAY OF THE CRUCIFIXION panorama, made in William Wehner's studio in downtown Milwaukee in 1886 (Chicago debut)1887 (Minneapolis debut)and 1888(Buffalo debut, later London) Info to share.

Not sure if you like putting a face with your work or not, but I added a photo of my great grandparents to their memorial page and thought you might be interested in the face behind the headstone. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was to find your headstone photo of my great great grandparents!!! If you update the site where I obtained their headstone pictures you are more than welcome to use the picture I posted to their memorial.

Leonora Temple Hoyne photo
Do you have any information about the location of the grave of Leonora Temple Hoyne in Rosehill Cemetery? I was there today and was told she was not in their database. Obviously she is buried there since you have taken a picture of the monument. Next time I go to Chicago I'd like to see the grave.
Thank you,
Linda Ryan

Thanks for all the posting you have done. Those of us far away are grateful. Question, do you know the best way to get permission for a headstone picture from Rosehill? Appreciate your time.

I was looking for a photo for Elmer Belsan Grave 86950370
In the Bohemian National Cemetary.

You posted a pick of the Cemetary Entrance and once a pic is posted another cannot be requested. Is there anyway you could seek my grandfathers grave out and post a pic? My mother, who no longer is able to travel, as would I would like to see. I remember visiting once on a childhood visit to area.

Thank You!

She is survived by her daughters Elizabeth Feucht and Mary Jane (Dale) Morris; grandsons Benjamin, Jonathan, and Daniel Feucht; grandsons Frederick Poplin and Gregory Morris; and nine great-grandchildren.

In honor of her husband's military service, she was also a lifetime associate member of the 351st Bomb Group.

Charles T. Hotchkiss # 6627380
Thanks for posting!

One correction and a question.

Find A Grave Memorial# 6627380 for Charles T. Hotchkiss - you list his middle name as "Truman." In fact, it is "Trumbull." If you could correct, that'd be swell.

Question - buried beside Charles (presumably) is his wife, Frances E. (Dye) Hotchkiss. I have her death date as August 6, 1899. I believe she was born about 1839, but I haven't been able to find records yet to confirm that. Can you tell from other photos you might have taken of that site what the birth date for Francis is?

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.

Leonora Hoyne and her mother
Hi again, mlp...

Thanks to the assistance of another Find A Grave member, I have found the burial location of Elizabeth Ann Staughton Temple, the mother of Leonora Maria Temple Hoyne. Elizabeth's memorial is #75820170. Would you please link Leonora's memorial to that of her mother? Thanks for your quick response to my request to link Leonora's father, too. I appreciate all you have done very much.

Hi, mlp,

Would you please link Leonora Hoyne's memorial (Memorial #6505934) to that of her father, Dr. John Taylor Temple (Memorial #70635443)? Dr. Temple is buried in Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis, MO. Thank you! (I am still looking for the burial location of Leonora's mother, Elizabeth Ann Staughton Temple.)

I've created memorials for the other occupants in his plot, including Hiram A. Pitts, my GGG grandfather. Florison is my GG Grandfather's brother. If you transfer Florison, Deless, and Janet Pitts to me I will flesh out their memorials and link them to other family members.

Lisa, I really believe Nathan's name is Nathan Lucius rather than Lisha. His father was Lucius Melvin, and his son was Austin Lucius Melvin. Reasonable that Nathan's name would be Lucius; however, I've never seen his name spelled out. If you agree, would like to see this change. Wanda Ridge

Mr. Bill
Hi. I have ancestors in the Louisville area, and I believe Robert Peace is one of them. I have found a couple of relatives living in that area, and wondered if you included Mr. Peace in your lists because you are a related. There were also the Kelley family, and finally my Dad, William Null. I don't believe I have any relatives in the Chicago area, except perhaps you. So, thanks for any info. -- Bill Null, L.A., Calif.
