Lake Mound Cemetery
 
Jay Cunnington has sent in all of the following information about Lake Mound Cemetery. Many Thanks, Jay!
 
Per Ardsley Congdon of Congdon Funeral Home, the records for this cemetery were destroyed in 1933 by the caretaker. Jay knows of at least two unmarked graves containing his grandfather and uncle:
 
James Arthur Cunnington (grandma couldn't afford a stone) b. 3 April 1881 in Woodwalton or Yelling, Huntingdonshire, England, d. May 7, 1926 at Johns-Manville in Waukegan when he was electrocuted while working on a crane. Listed in the death cert. as James Arthur Cummington.
 
Van Buren Shumaker Jay walked the cemetery but didn't find a stone. Vern's sister Faith Grace has one (she's buried in the SE corner), so Jay assumes Vern may have had one at one time. He is listed in the death cert. as "Vern Buren" and he died June 14, 1906.
 
Note: A { denotes that those (several) names were found on one stone.
