Bio and Links
Bio Photo My current interest is to find the resting places of the early believers of the Baha'i Faith, in America and around the world. As we commemorate the Centenary of the 1912 visit of Abdu'l-Baha to the West, we are remembering these founders of our world-wide Baha'i community. It's nice to keep a record of where they rest.

"I long to visit the graves of the friends of God, could this be possible. These are the servants of the Blessed Beauty; in His path they were afflicted; they met with toil and sorrow; they sustained injuries and suffered harm. Upon them be the glory of God, the All-Glorious. Unto them be salutation and praise. Upon them be God's tender mercy, and forgiveness." - 'Abdu'l-Baha, Memorials of the Faithful, p. 14

RE: May Scheffler at Waldheim Jewish Cemetery
From the May 18, 1962 Chicago Tribune:

Carl Scheffler of 1821 Lincoln street, Evanston, May 17, 1962, husband of May T. Sheffler; father of Mrs. Victor de Araujo of Seattle, Wash., and Harlan C. Scheffler of Elmhurst, Ill.; four grandchildren. Resting at Hebblethwaite Chapel, 1567 Maple avenue, Evanston, where service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday. Interment Graceland cemetery.

I hope this helps your research.

RE: Arna True Perron
Dear Candace, it was my pleasure to help. What a very interesting project you are involved in. By a strange twist of circumstances, a family that my family has been friends with for almost 30 years just buried their husband/father in Brea, Calif. Ehsan was from Iran originally, and his family is Baha'i. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Unfortunately, I don't have a photo of his marker. I have been using Rock Creek's master list to add in grave sites for all the memorials on the request list -- that way, it will be easier for those fulfilling the requests to find the graves. It is a very large cemetery! I hope that this will help you get a photo sooner.

RE: Hi Duane
I don't see these messages often. I do know about Bertha. She was the second Baha'i in Topeka. She created the first community here. When she left, things fell apart. She wrote to Mabel about events here and I'm eager to read those letters, but they've not been accessioned that I know of.

After traveling to Olivet once, I discovered that John was buried in Topeka - in the same cemetery with my mother's parents and many Baha'is. I was amazed. He is our first death-bed conversion. It's in my book (so is Bertha).

Glad to know we have another connection.

I've just posted memorials for my Irish, McAllister family line. Obituaries confirmed stories my grandmother told. That was nice.

I think the stone is referring to her spouse. She married Hippolyte Dreyfus. You could update he memorial to her married name as well. I do know about her sister. I think she was one of the first open gay women?

RE: May Scheffler at Waldheim Jewish Cemetery
I am sorry this is not the correct May. I asked about Carl and Charles, but they are not listed at the cemetery management office that I went to.

There is a second management company who may be able to help you. Please contact Silverman & Weiss: Phone: 708-366-0125. If they have the people you are looking for, please send me the burial plot locations, and I will go back to the cemetery and take photos for you.

In case you do not know, this is a massive cemetery that combined 300 individual cemeteries into one cemetery with over 150,000 burials. There are often duplicate names between the two management companies that take care of the burial plots. Because of my schedule I usually only work with one of the two management companies, but I do take photos of any burial plot throughout the cemetery complex.

Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to this information.

RE: Laura Clifford Barney
I am not sure. The info that I have is that this is her name? Do you know if there was a marriage. I will gladly delete the memorial incase it is a duplicate. Let me know though if you find out about her name. My cousin in France and her kids are working on this cemetery. Thanks
