Do you have an ancestor who died and was buried at Stateville Prison near Joliet? If so I may be able to share a little information. Give name, and death year if known.

Since this is an old message, I am hoping you will still get it. This is a long shot, I know, as there supposedly were only 437 inmates interred here. Anyhow, could you please let me know if you have anything for Kenneth Franklin Miles, born 1926. Date of death unknown.

Thanks a bunch!

I do have the complete listing of all burials at both cemeteries located at Stateville. No one by the last name of Miles is buried there. Could he have possibly been there under an alias?

It's not likely, but thanks so much for the quick response! Do you know anything about finding old prison records (Joliet - 1960s) by any chance? I have left messages with the records office in Springfield and am awaiting a return call but am not terribly hopeful.

Just call 2 or 3 times a week, leave messages for return calls, and cross your fingers. Sooner or later someone will return a call, but any records will still be hard to get.

I'm looking for Carl(o) DeSalvo. I know he was at Stateville in 1940 and died in 1944.

There were 9 burials that year. There is no Carl(o) DeSalvo, or no DeSalvo, or any Carl in either the new or old cemetery. A Carlo (first name) was buried in 1966 in the new cemetery. This means that someone claimed the body.
