Forest Park, Illinois

What's Missing?  What's important gets recorded. In graveyards, at a minimum, that usually means the name along with year of birth and year of death. Here, the salient fact seems to have been where he died: "in hospital." He was with the circus. We know that because he is buried in a section of the cemetery called Showman's Rest. Worked for the circus/died in the hospital: Are the two related? Woodlawn Cemetery. [1987]
