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?

I think it's sad that often times a person's "final resting place" really isn't.

Sad indeed. Thanks for reading and commenting, Phinnius.

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

I neglected to mention the name of the article; You're Never Alone in Cheesman Park.If I recall, the author was Dennis O'Donnell Dunn. If you like, Contact me, tom.martin727@gmail.com

Thanks, Thomas! We'll have to check out that article. Do you happen to know when it was published in Empire?

I have beautiful pics we took on trip to ski in Aspen (from Calif) at the memorial pavillion ...Beautiful place and lots of interesting history. Thank You to Denver CO.and all involved to preserve a piece of distant family history..
