I have posted a picture for the lot, unfortunately she is one of the unmarked in the lot.

Please see the caption for a list of those buried in the lot.

RE: Millar corrections.
I found John R Millar's obit in the Chicago Star Publications October 18, 1927. He was married to Mary Ann White until she died in 1919. He then married Eliza Millar. It said she was a foster child of his mother. He died in the Old Soldiers Home in Leavenworth Kansas in October 1927.

addition to previous comment
John Millar born in 1824 remarried after Eliza died to a woman named Ella. I have that she was born in Maryland in 1851. I have a post card picture that she sent to John's son Andrew that sounded as if she was returning to Maryland after John died.

correction and clarification
John R Millar, married to Eliza F LNU, was born about 1940 to David Millar and Esther Wagstaff. John Millar, married to Eliza W McEldowney, was born May 6, 1824 to William Millar and Isabella Morton.

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,

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.

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.
