RE: Madelyn Barclay
Madelyn is a 2nd cousin of mine, two generations removed. Her Grandfather Martin John Buckner and my Great-Great Grandfather David "Traugott" Buckner were brothers.

It's so nice to meet another "shirt-tail" relative in my ongoing genealogical journey. I think I actually already have your name in my family tree. At least it's a possibility. I have Lawrence Varkalis, son of Charles Anton "Chick" Varkalis, son of Dorothy Wiles Varkalis, who was a step-sister??? of Preston "Barc" Barclay. I got so terribly confused with their parents because I ended up with too many? husbands of Shirley Helena Barclay, so I gave up. Let me know how I did.

Best Wishes,
Ellen

Barclay Gravesite Photo
Thank you so much for your time and effort to provide a photograph of the Preston and Madelyn Barclay gravesite. I truly appreciate it and hope you will consent to allow me to include it in my personal family tree.

Sincerely,
Ellen M. Herrmann

John Verhagen #112954167
I fould the information for John's death from the Illinois Death and Stillbirth records dated 1914-1947. It said that he died in Chicago and buried at Presbyterian Cemetery. His parents names matched the family I was reserching and the family moved to Elkhart IN before 1935.
Maybe they moved his body to Indiana cemetery where they are both buried after moving to Elkhart. I have attached his parent to his memorial for your information. Check the mmothers maidian name, maybe her family paid for the babies buriel.

Re: Theodore Griese
Hello..Sorry this message is late getting to you. Theodore Griese is my grandfather (3x removed). I have a copy of the front page write up to his death from the Chicago Heights Star May 4, 1934. It says that the cemetery he was buried at was Presbyterian in Chicago Heights. I was there this past summer with a distant cousin who also said he was buried there. I have the same photo of the gate to the cemetery that you have posted for Find A Grave. We spent some time at the cemetery, but could not find the plot. We were told that it was on the south side somewhere near the fence line, but couldn't find it. It looked like there were some stones that were very difficult to read. I am assuming he was buried there somewhere?? Thanks for any help.

RE: Mary McQueen Simpson McEldowney
Mary's brother was:
Quincy Sutherland McEldowney
Birth 30 Dec 1916 in Chicago Heights, Cook, Illinois
Death 10 Aug 1937 in Chicago Heights, Cook, Illinois
buried Oak Lawn Cemetery, Janesville, Wisconsin (per Cook County death record, with his mother's family)

I'm a cousin to the McEldowneys via the Caskeys and Wallaces (and a couple more times). My MaWhinney cousins are also in Bloom Cemetery. These old Scot/Irish families intermarried a LOT, I joke I'm my own cousin 14 times ;-)

RE: Ruth McEldowney # 112366235
That's an old copy of my tree, Ancestry hasn't been co-operating on my dlo of the tree so I can update the Rootsweb one. I had gone by the Bloom Cem record and based her parents on who she was buried with. Then I found the birth cert.
