Cornells in Graceland Cemetery Chicago I contacted the cemetery in order to fulfill your photo request. Their answer was interesting. They said: "Annie Cornell, death May 24,1884 is buried in a single grave in Block Section 11 Grave #692. She was 48 years at death. Peter Cornell is also buried in Block 11 #1164. He was 50 years 6 months at death 1/04/1886. Notice he is listed under Peter not Christian in our records. It appears there are no headstones on either of the Cornell graves." Regards, Bob Lerch
Mount Olive Photo Request Hi. I will be going to Mount Olive cemetery over the next 3 or 4 weeks (weather permitting) to take photos of my relatives grave sites and I saw you had a request(s). If you would call the cemetery office (number on the front page of the cemetery page) and get the location of the burial, I will try to get the photo request for you while I am there. Just add it to your memorial in the plot section. They are very helpful at the office. Kathy
Michaels I found Dr. Peter Michaels, but could not find Frank. I took photos of Mary Fink (sister to Peter) 1875-1907---Bertha---1890-1964---Leo A.--1905--1940---Nellie J. --1908-1992----William K. (son of Leo)--1930-1936 and Pauline (his wife) 1871-1912. Will keep on my computer until I hear from you.
RE: help? Mt Olivet is a Catholic Cemetery located on the far Southside of Chicago.
Mt Olive is a non-religious cemetery located on the Northside of Chicago.
Many requests for photos go unanswered at Mt Olive due to each burial location has to be look up by hand by the staff and they aren't pleasant about it. The Catholic cemeteries in Chicago have computers in the office that anybody can use to find and map out burial locations and plots.
My suggestion is that you call Mt. Olive and request the burial location by SECTION/LOT/GRAVE NUMBER and put the burial location on the FIND A GRAVE memorial page. It may increase your odds of it being fulfilled.
