|I am a photo volunteer for Chicago. I will make every attempt to locate a grave as long as there is some indication of where the grave is located in the cemetery (section, plot, etc.). I love genealogy and enjoy helping others find photos of the resting places of their ancestors.|
I have photographed all of the legible headstones in Jewish Graceland Cemetery and Wunder's Cemetery, as of summer 2014.

|Jo Murphie||Mary Morgan|
Mary "Mollie" Morgan, 2nd wife of Granville Elliott Morgan, was the daughter of Abner Granville Morgan, 1828-1883 and his 1st wife Mary McGlasson, 1839-1871. Abner was a Baptist minister. He married Isabelle Simpson after Mary's death.
Mollie & Granville had another daughter not linked on her Findagrave memorial - Jessie May Morgan. I have no information on whether she married.
There was another Abner Morgan in the vicinity at about the same time, who is easy to confuse with Abner G. I have given you both of Abner G's wives to help differentiate there two men.
Hope this helps. If you have further questions, feel free to ask.
|Brad and Lyn||Bohemian Nat'l Cemetery|
Hello, Sorry I hadn't removed my photo request for Clara Mika yet. I have written Bohemian Nat'l and am awaiting response. I thought I would let you know for information in your bio that Bohemain Nat'l will not give plot information over the phone. They require that you send a request via post, not email, with your request. That might help others save some time.
Thank you, Lyn
|Monique Whitman||Baby Boy Jannisch in BNC|
Thanks for trying to fill another one of my troublesome photo requests. The baby must have been moved when his grandmother (Frances Cespivo Korinek Holub) was moved to another part of the BNC. I have checked with the office multiple times and I guess this poor baby was just lost in the shuffle.
Hey what correction did you submit for Marie and Alois on the Cejka stone? I saw that its pending already. Their names were Marie (Novak) Hess and Alois Hess. Thanks!

|Louise Taraba||Taraba gravestones|
Thank you so much for going to the cemetery to take pictures of my five Taraba relatives gravestones and posting them. I am so happy to see their graves. A cousin was going to take me to the Bohemian Cemetery there, but she passed away before we could go. You most certainly have made my day. I appreciate all you do. Thanks!!

I don't need any other photos taken.. thank you
Thank you for the photo of the Florian grave. Frank was the son of Mathias/Michael Florian. It is possible that his father did not have a grave marker.

Thanks for the photo. I am curious did James not have a gravestone?
