Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello Everyone - I have been doing genealogy for 12 years-off/on. I found Find-A-Grave while doing research and think it a great indexing site for graves. And a great way to help families locate each other. I worked in the oil industries for about 22 years. Was a single mom raising two sons. I am biased but they turned out wonderful. Not only are they good looking but they have wonderful productive successful lives. Now I just recently married a wonderful retired marine and I do genealogy research. Happy Hunting Everyone - Gwen

RE: Sarah Hartman 8749236
She is puzzling that's for sure! Makes one wonder if its even the same person, or two with very simialr names/dates.

Since death certificates are notorious for incorrect data; meaning they're only as accurate as the informants knowledge of them was, I generally go with what's on the stone and put some sort of explanation in the bio area. I will happily add any info, from any contributor. This lets the viewing patron make up their own mind.

Also, unless known otherwise, what's on the stone is what we are suppose to post in the memorials.

I'll put this name on the back burner for now as I'm trying to finish up another cemetery, but in mean time if you come up with anything else - likes marriage records, please let me know. If we had verifiable marriage dates/places it would sure help!

RE: 23207759 John Joseph Canty
I'm sorry but my health has tanked and I am unable to drive to Calvary cemetery right now. I don't know if my health will improve.

I have a link to free early newspapers in California. You might have some luck with it.

FYI - I don't have a photo for that memorial which means I added that when I first started and did not have a digital camera. When I wrote down names, I tended to stay in one area and cover 2 to 5 rows in a section.

Calvary cemetery charges $25 for genealogy research. As a result, I send for death certificates because they are cheaper - they cost $21.

I'm sorry I can't be of help and I wish you the best of luck. I know what it is to search for people. It took me 6 years to find my paternal great grandfather.

I did find a minimal obituary for him and transcribed it. Unfortunately, it was not very informative.

Hi! I was out at Prospect Baptist in Stanly County yesterday… looking for family and photo requests. I was not able to locate Grace but her husband is there with a single marker. There is some space beside him on either side that may have been her resting place but no marker… so I could not verify that she actually is there. Oddly enough, there is a contact for the cemetery that may could help… I have his phone number and name. Send me an email (degarrow@aol.com) and I'll share it with you - He was helping another person on Find A Grave to locate their family members in the cemetery and I bet he could tell you for certain that she is buried there. Take care and hope to hear from you soon! Blessings, Dana

RE: Armstrong's at Rosehill
Generally speaking, I do not photograph in Chicago. If you provide me documentation that the cemetery says I can photograph there I would most likely go for you. Ace

RE: Lady Armstrong
Yes, I believe you should call them back.

The cemetery map is on the Forest Home Cemetery page and can be seen by clicking on "Click here to view all images ..." link at the lower right.

Perhaps you could print this out and ask what sections the grave is between while you are on the phone. Thank you! Ace

Hi! The location that you provided does not exist in this cemetery - Section "NIH."

Is it possible that you misheard the person on the phone and it is actually "Section IH"?

I just want to make sure I post a photo of the correct location.

Thank you for helping to clear this up.

Reminder for Lady Armstrong
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace
