An extensive amount of research has gone into locating information on those interred in the mausoleum. Obituaries, death notices, wedding announcements, births and christenings, anniversaries, parties and many other articles have been collected on the individuals interred in the mausoleum and their relatives.  Additional articles of other local Beecher residents who may or may not be related were also compiled.

We currently have over 12,000 people in the Beecher Mausoleum Family Tree on which includes many of the people who founded the Village of Beecher and Washington Township. We may have information on your ancestors, too.

If you are researching your family’s genealogy, we would be happy to check our files and see if we have anything you’re looking for.  Just send Sandra an E-mail.

Here’s a cute story written by Dahlia Wyllarde which I found at Petunia Press.

  1. what can you tell me about Sophia Jaeger (Russo) do you have a picture.
    related to the family of Henry Hinze of Beecher …..

    All I have on Sophia Jaeger, is Born 11-28-1884 Illinois, Baptism 1-4-1885 sterling, Il
    1900 Census, Servant for the August Gerstenkom Family Crete, IL age 15. I don’t even show her marriage to a Russo. Can you share more information?

      August Gerstenkorn was my husband’s great-grandfather. I have pictures of the family at their house. There are people in the pictures that we have not been able to name. Any ideas on how to contact Dorothea Hinze – I was unable to “log in” to respond to the email.

      Thank you very much
      Paula Scheiwe

      my husband is Charles Scheiwe – a direct descendant of the Eagle Lake, Beecher, Crete Scheiwe’s and Gerstenkorn’s
