The county has just announced that it is going to put the extra land at Oak Forest hospital up for sale. About 150 acres. The problem is that they don't know where the bodies are buried. Some of the remains might not have even been put into coffins. Many bodies could have been placed in the ground outside of the cemetary boundaries. Looks like they don't have much in the way of records. Bill King
