|Steve||RE: Thanks for the picture|
You are very welcome.
She is buried next to her parents (Joseph on the left, Lolah in the middle, and Bonnie on the right.) I see that you shot the photo of Joseph’s headstone. So, if you remember where that was, you know where Bonnie is buried.
I could have sworn that I sent you a note about the search for Louisa Ottman, but I see now that I never got it done.
I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find Louisa because there is no record of her at: http://dekalb.illinoisgenweb.org/Cemeteries/Elmwood_files/elmwood_O.html. This list was generated in the 1980’s by people actually walking the cemetery and writing down the names they found there. I figured that if they didn’t find her ~30 years ago, the odds of me finding her today were remote.
But just incase, I went over to the Sycamore library and had a look at the official Elmwood records. Sure enough, Louisa was listed in a plot next to the road within about 50 feet of the cemetery’s east entrance. The reason there was no listing for Louisa at the illinoisgenweb site is because there is no family stone indicating last name, only stones with first names. There are stones on either side of Louisa’s that are made of the same material and in the same manner as Louisa’s with the names George, Charles, Mary, Russell, and Lida E.

|Laura Jensen62||Question about parents|
Hello. I was wondering if you are positive of the parents on memorial no. 25902063 Lorena wells. I have some Wells that I think are her parents. William H and Ida Rosaline (Palmer) Wells. No. 1327200401 and No. 132720401. Thank you for checking it out for me.
You posted a photo of grave stone for Rev. Harold Nilges. It is a joint marker with his sister. She just died today and I am making a page for her. May I post your photo to her page?
I'm not related, and not seeking to have this transferred to me.

You're Welcome Orrin.
|Bradford White||RE: Thanks for your diligence...|
You are welcome, Orrin. Sorry it did not pan out. Given no (known, written) records of Morses in this cemetery and that Isaac Morse was about ten years old, is it conceivable that he was buried in the other cemeteries where Morses predominated? Seems odd to have a child removed from parents and siblings. Let me know if I can track down another.

|Scout||RE: Thanks for the pictures!!|
You are so welcome. We photographed quite a bit of that cemetery when we were in that area in Sept. ( We live in Michigan) I have been working on the transcription right now, but try to put the photos up as well when I see the requests.
