Thanks ... I was there in the early 90's and could not find it. Cemetery was not in good condition - weeds and grass - and it started raining, so you know what the road up to Greenlee's looks like.

Oh thank-you so much!! This part of my family is so sad. I was hoping that his gravestone was visible there. I can't find his wife's gravestone but I will keep looking!

Hello, I am not related to Alvin McGill. I had access to Chicago Tribune obituaries and made an index of McGill and Magill obituaries that is in the McGill message board on I also set up several findagrave memorials for some of the McGills that I found. Since you are a relative, I'd be happy to transfer the memorial to you.
