Hi! This is an amazing site, and much respect for the amount of time that you must have spent to create and build it! Thank you!


Per your site, there are many unidentified stones, and additional graves beyond the fence. One of which is Frederick Nielsen, according to The Tinley Park Times, “Fred Nielsen, 91 Tinley Park’s Oldest Resident Dies” 

Tinley Park, Cook County, Illinois, Friday, March 1, 1935. The oldest resident, at the time, was 91. (His father had died at 104!)


It’s likely that his wife of fifty years, Mrs. Gertrude Grosskurthnee Young, d.1915, is also interned there.


Hoping that you can add the information, even if you cannot locate the grave. Among his descendants, was John C. Nielsen, born in Tinley, and a Mayor of Mokena.
