Descendants are fighting Chicago's Removal of their Cemetery

In the May 5, 2010, Chicago Tribune there is an article, Cemetery fight goes beyond graves. The story is about plans for Chicago's O'Hare Airport expanding runway to cover a 161 year old, still in use, cemetery.

The article includes some of the remembrances the descendants have of their families that are associated with the cemetery.

The descendants and the Church plan to fight city hall.

The cemetery, St. Johannes Cemetery, is in find-a-grave, with pictures.

I thought that since the last newsletter featured the remembrances at the Townsend House Cemetery, a thanksgiving for secure cemeteries should be in our hearts.
