|Kevin Baase||RE: Re: Iroquois Fire Victims|
I would add that I looked at the 12/31/1903 paper which said that Frances Lehman was not initially killed but just injured, struck on the head by a fallen beam while leaving the building and taken to St. Luke's hospital. It wasn't until the 1/2/1904 paper that I saw she was identified as deceased, so I doubt she actually died on 12/30/1903, but don't know the actual date she died.
|Kevin Baase||Iroqious Fire victims|
Thank you for starting memorials on Frances "Fannie" Lehman, and her nephew Lawrence McClure. I have been studying the Lehman family and within the last 24 hours I found out that both of them died in the fire; I assume they had gone to the theater together.
|Kate Sparrow||Iroquois Theater Fire FAG list|
Please add Bessie Herron 1883-1903 Find A Grave #153858568 buried in Monon Cemetery, Monon, White County, IN to your list of the dead from the fire. Thank you. Kate Sparrow

|John Steele||RE: Finas Lee Hale|
My greataunt had a son (Clayton Lee Hale) with him. I'll delete my entry.
|John Steele||Finis Lee Hale|
Thanks for the input on Finis. Since he is one of my relatives would you mind turning his information over to me. Thank you.
|Grave Recorder||Anna Niemann Chvalovsky|
Actually you are wrong on that. Her maiden name is not Chvalovsky. It is Jelinek and she is buried next to her first husband. Niemann is her 2nd husband's name. I have deleted mine and sent the correction to the owner of the other memorial.
|Ellie||RE: Morris Edelman|
Thank you so much I appreciate it. If there is Hebrew writing, hopefully it will have Morris's father's name, as per the tradition.

Thank you for posting Morris Edelman stone in may 2015. He is located in the Ridgelawn Cemetery center plot, as is his wife Clara Edelman. I was wondering if you know or could look at the back of the stone to see if there is Hebrew writing, and if so would you take photo of that and post it. Both for Morris and Clara.
Thanking you in advance,

|Donald Glut||Isadore Frankenstein|
What a fascinating website! Although I've lived in Southern California since 1964, I grew up on Magnolia Ave. in Chicago, just around the corner from the cemetery. As a kid I was fascinated by the tombstone of Isadore Frankenstein (for obvious reasons). A couple or so decades ago, on one of my visits back to Chicago, I noticed that the tombstone had been moved, probably by vandals, and was lying close to the cemetery's back wall. I assume someone tried stealing it as a prank, but found it too heavy to carry over the wall and just left it lying on the ground. For years this bothered me. And so around 2002, with the help of Chicago police officer Joe Cobb and some friends, I organized a "rescue team" to restore the tombstone to its (as best I could remember) proper resting place. The story made one of the local newspapers.
