Cheesman Park's Past a Cemetery



who were the folks buried here are there a list of names of these folks?
were all of them removed from this site before it became a park?

Many places in Europe have rented burial spots and if rent is not paid then you lose the spot. Interesting cultural differences surrounding death and the handling of the deceased.


Thank you for the wonderful article.FYI, Empire Magazine had an outstanding article on Cheesman, Mt. Prospect, and its nickname Jack O'Neills Ranch. The site of the current Congress Park was the Jewish cemetery
