These photos are of two Whalen graves at Calvary Cemetery, Evanston, Cook County, Illinois. The graves are located in Lot 35, Block 23, Section U. I don’t know yet if these Whalens are related to my Whelans, also buried at Calvary Cemetery, but I hope to find out one day. Here are close-up photos and transcriptions of the headstones:
Michael Whalen Husband of Mary E. Whalen Born Aug. 15, 1847 Died March 8, 1925 Rest in Peace
Mary E. Wife of Michael Whalen Born in Chicago May 25 1847 Died Jan. 13 1889 Rest in Peace
I am a genealogist with over 30 years experience. I have been researching my own family history since 1974, and I did client research for several years. I hope to have more time for research and blogging in 2014 than I have had in the last few years.
