Burr Oak Cemetery, post 2

As the investigation furthers into the Burr Oak Cemetery the police have stated that many people gave the local authorities (Alsip Police) tips on the problems at the cemetery in 2005. Electricians and others reported seeing bones, coffins and broken stones in piles. Why is it that the local authorities did not look into this.



It seems not only do we need to investigate the goings on at the cemetery, but we also need to be looking into the local authorities as well. This is… Continue

Cemetery Workers dig up graves...

NBC News reported this afternoon that employees at Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, IL have been digging up graves and reselling the plots. They stated that there was an area blocked off that they believe have the remains from the graves, plus the tombstones, all piled up. According to the NBS reporters, the owners of the cemetery tipped the police off to what was going on.



When will our loved ones be safe. Cemeteries are moved, family is not notified. Now the employees seem to think it… Continue

Thank you for your reply dear Terri O'Connell. Mr. Porai-Koshets from Kiev gave me link www.genealogywise.com/group/russiaancestry/forum/topics/poray-koshetz with your anouncement of your grandfather research. He claims he has information on Anatoly Petrovich Porai Koshets. If you'll write me in private, I can give you his email for direct contact. I insist on private for antispam reasons.
As for me, yes I am Ukrainian geologist and researchin mainly family of Counts of Holy Rome Empire Morkov (AKA Morcow, Morkoff) and related to them families. Thank you.

Hi Terri,

My Richmondl ine is actually two - I have the John Richmond (1594-1664) who died in Taunton MA, and his son Edward (1632-1696) who married Abigail Davis. This line is all through SE MA, RI and then eastern CT.

My otherl ine is in Wiltshire in England, and was Richman until James Richman (1821-1912) brought his family to New England in 1856 and settled in Putnam CT.
