Bensenville Cemeteries

"These inscriptions taken from four cemeteries at Bensenville, Ill., are recorded as a hint(?) that they may be, or some in fact are, related to folks here or around here. At least for reference later." A "small E.U.B. Cemetery on abandoned road northeast of town in the west area of O'Hare Field, Chi." and "the larger E&R Evang. St. Johannes Kireke Cemetery on the same road near the garbage dump west of O'Hare Field." (Arnett C. Lines)
