|Bio and Links|
I spend most of my days with my dead ancestors, learning about the lives they lived. Even though I've never met them, I feel like they are with me.|
I am very interested in the history of people and cemeteries. I enjoy visiting cemeteries and looking at gravestones, and trying to find out what the people were like and where they came from. I think it would be fascinating to know where they lived and where their descendents are now. I have a passion for genealogy and I am currently looking for my own ancestors from Chicago and upstate New York, as well as Norway. :)
If you are related to anyone listed in the memorials that I have created(if I'm not related to them), especially those in Oregon, I will be happy to transfer them to you. I am also willing to add or correct any information you may have about the people in these memorials.

|Ace||Cregar & Bachman Photos|
Hi! Photos posted for them, but there was no individual marker for them, and their names are not on the Cregar monument.
On the back side of the Cregar monument is the following:
1. In the center of the monument the word "SIMMONS."
2. Harry I. Cregar, 1899 - 1964 and "DAD"
3. J. Odell, 1887 - 1939 and "FATHER"
If you would like photos of these, please post the photos requests and I will add the photos.

This cemetery is a problem. I have tried to obtain pictures twice. First, they will only give you the location of one grave per visit, I like to search for more than one. Then the kicker, you cannot take the camera out of the car. They do not permit the taking of memorial pictures. If you look at the Rosehill site, you will see hundreds of of requests and many with the same problem indicated. I do not know if your calling would make a difference. It may be worth a try.
|GSand||RE: Gregars in Blackstone Cemetery|
Yes, they're near each other. The Gregar/Cregars are located in lot 100, the Myer family (Isaiah, Rebecca, & Katie) is in 97 which is adjacent to 100 to the west. William & Mary are in lot 96 which is adjacent to 97 to the south.
Glad I could be help. Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Yes I am Edgar's grandmother was Anna Helena Novander and that's who I am thru. I was there to their graves last summer. I just uploaded pictures of the children's graves for you. Edgar's father and grandmother immigrated from Sweden in 1873. Edgar's father Anders(Andrew) was a monument maker in Chicago so Edgar probably followed in his footsteps or maybe even worked with his father. I've still yet to find the mother of Andrew, Anna's grave.
I'm glad I could be of help to you.
If you determine that they truly are the sisters you've been searching for, I would appreciate knowing that and I will correct the cemetery records to reflect more accurate information (I am on the board of the Blackstone Cemetery).
Please let me know if there's anything else I can do to help you.

No, I'm not related to the Gregars, so I'm happy to transfer management to you. I found a transcription of Blackstone Cemetery dated Aug 26, 1981 and, assuming that headstones were less eroded then, I updated the memorials with information found in it.

It was my pleasure. while looking for your request I took 75 more photos of memorials without monument photos ...I enjoy helping people .....have a great day
|Julie Doty||RE: Ida Achuff|
Hello, Yes, I believe they are. Stanley is still living in Streator and his sister Debbie I believe is living in the Chicago Suburbs. If need be, I can try to get ahold of one of them for you. Sincerely, Julie
