Sylvania Cemetery Photographs

Sylvania Cemetery Photographs

On May 4th, 2001, a semitrailer truck plowed through the gates of Sylvania Cemetery.
The Chicago driver was taking a load of mail on the southbound I-94 when he lost control of the truck.
The truck slid down an embankment, crossed W. Frontage Road and came to rest inside the Cemetery.
Ann Pape took photographs of the Sylvania Cemetery stones before the truck incident.

Ann states:
The truck accident broke the Toase stone up and have noticed that it is being put together like a puzzle.
Some of the smaller stones like the Anna Buckley Fink stone was dragged out of its place but is still in one
piece. Heidersdorf stones were moved and damaged -- the markers were arranged in a square. I do not know about
all markers which were damaged.
Thank you, Ann, for sharing these photos with us.
