Tombstone Tuesday – Surrounding Jonas Graves

The cylinder stones belong to a family with the Jonas surname. At this point, I have not confirmed they are related. Though, I highly suspect that they are. This single stone is about a foot away from William and Marie Jonas, which was last Tombstone Tuesday’s post. With them being buried so close together, it would just make sense.


John Jonas 1849-1927


Hanan Jonas (I believe it should be Hannah)


Willie Jonas

Born 28 April 1893

Died 23 Feb. 1916

*I actually thought Willie was my great-great uncle until I compared his month of death with my William. But I will blog about that another day.


Ida 1886 – 1960

John 1888 – 1949

All of these gravesites are at St Mathews Lutheran Cemetery in Niles, Cook, Illinois.
