RE: Vickie McDonald Mould
Good Morning,

There is no listing in the records for her at this cemetery.

However, this cemetery has been through so many hands and bad dealings that alot of records may have been lost or destroyed.

I have taken pictures of ALL headstones and footstones, markers ect in this cemetery. I have upload or updated all of them into find a grave.

You may want to call the crematorium and see if they have a listing in their records.

Hi Debbie, I attempted to fulfill your photo requests for the two Dannenfeldt babies as well as Gretchen however I could not find stones for them. Clara, Henry, and Magdalena are the only ones with stones. The three you are looking for may be buried with these people with stones, I am not sure. Otherwise a large portion of the cemetery has stones sparsely spread so there's probably a lot of unmarked graves. Unless you can get a location from the cemetery I am not sure where they would be. I can try to get more info from the church.

RE: Kulas Family
I am just so happy to be able to get out there. We're having another mild winter with not too much snow. Happy to help.

It always makes me feel bad when I can't find a stone or I have to wait till the snow melts(which lately has not been until April)

I live about 90 miles away from the cemetery and it snowed Monday and they say it will snow more we'd and Friday. If it does not snow more and warms up enough to melt the snow that is already there I am going to try and go up Saturday to take more photos I will search more of section S.

Augusta Hammerschmidt at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi! Almost no one fulfills photo requests here because the cemetery does not appreciate photographers and they will not supply them with burial plots.

But you can get the burial plot by calling the cemetery at 773-287-0772 or try e-mailing if you cannot talk to someone.

Since there are over 150,000 burials at the cemetery, finding someone's grave without a plot (Section and Lot Number) is nearly impossible. Ace
