Yes, of course, and thank you!!
|James Bellert||Harry A. Anderson|
Sorry to bother you again. I checked the Evergreen Park Evergreen Cemetery to see if there is a memorial there for him. There isn't, but I did find one there which you also created for Henry Anderson (Find A Grave Memorial# 111197509). In that one you also included an application for headstone which shows the delivery address as Oak Lawn, then Evergreen Cemetery at 87th and Kedzie. That's the same address as the one for Harry Anderson, so this is just one more bit of evidence that Harry is buried in Evergreen Park and not Barrington.

I had a request earlier this year for a photo of the headstone of Harry A. Anderson in Evergreen Cemetery in Barrington, IL. I have photographed every marker in Evergreen Cemetery, Barrington and there just is no marker for Harry Anderson. The transcription of burials for Evergreen Cemetery in the Barrington Library also has no listing for him. Check it out at http://www.barringtonarealibrary.org/cemeteries/303-evergreen_ab
There are two Evergreen Cemeteries in Cook County, Illinois. The one in Barrington and the one in Evergreen Park.
The photo of the application for headstone shows the delivery address in Oak Lawn, Il. Oak Lawn is only a couple of miles west of the Evergreen Park Evergreen Cemetery. Also, I found an obituary for Harry A. Anderson in the Chicago Tribune dated Nov. 7, 1947: "Sgt. Harry A. Anderson , killed in action in Belgium Jan. 15, 1945, beloved son of Mr. and Mrs. Victor Anderson , dear brother of Harriett. Services Saturday, Nov. 8, at 1:30 p.m., at funeral home, corner 79th and Aberdeen. Interment Evergreen." That funeral home is only a couple of miles from the Evergreen Park Evergreen Cemetery at 87th and Kedzie. The distance from the funeral home to the Barrington Evergreen Cemetery is over 50 miles. I'm familiar with both cemeteries as I live near the one in Barrington and my inlaws live only a mile from the Evergreen Park cemetery.
Based on the application for headstone and the obituary AND the fact that there is no marker in Barrington and Harry Anderson is not listed in the transcription of the cemetery, I'm sure he is NOT buried in Barrington and am certain that the Evergreen Cemetery referred to in the obituary is the one in Evergreen Park.
Perhaps you could use the "edit" button to transfer this memorial to the Evergreen Cemetery in Evergreen Park, Cook County, Illinois.

I write for the newspaper in Peoria, Ill. I'm trying to see if you have further info re Robert Mathewson. Also, I'm seeking permission to use your photo of his grave, with a credit line. I can explain this further, if you'd like to call me at 309.213.1517.
