Jacobson grave

My father got Alzheimer's disease at age 55 and died at 60 in 1990. In 2013/7 based on

Was looking for site map for Graceland and found it on your site. Thanks. Since I was out there I photographed your father's site. It aligns with your google map and shows up as pale blur in left side of box.

You can see photos on findagrave.com.

I was able to pinpoint update my Google™ Earth KML map of my father's resting place in Graceland Cemetery, Chicago, IL, USA. (Un-check (or in Google Earth, fade) the overlay.)

I had made the map based on the following:

Dear Mr. Jacobson:

I am happy to fulfill some of your request. I can verify your father's cremation and burial here at Graceland; I can also provide maps to locate his grave. The maps are attached. I trust you to find the coordinates, so that you may mark your Google page.

Benjamin H. Jacobson
Died March September 25, 1990
Age at death 61
Cremated March September 26, 1990
Inurned March September 26, 1990
Section B
Lot 41, 42
Grave 5 with headstone

Attached please find the following maps:

  1. Map of Graceland Cemetery

  2. Map of section B

These two maps should help you track the coordinates of your father's grave. I am unsure if Google maps will allows enough detail, so that your father's headstone is legible. However, the maps should provide a fairly accurate reference.

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance:

Thank you for informing us that our researcher did not provide you with the correct information.

Our records have the correct information that Benjamin H. Jacobson died on 9/25/1990 and was cremated the next day, 09/26/90. For whatever reason, our researcher did not send you the correct dates. We apologize for the error.

Thanks again,

Dear Graceland Cemetery,

My father, Benjamin H. Jacobson, who died around 1990, I believe is buried at your cemetery. What I want to do is make a Google Maps link, for example [...] to the exact spot, to save in posterity on my website, as it seems unlikely I will visit it in person. Can you help me make such a link? I see there is much discussion: http://www.google.com/search?q=google+maps+cemetery+mapping. Thanks. --Dan Jacobson.
