In the office of Trinity Lutheran church, 100th pi and Beverly ave, is a 30-pound stone, about a foot square and three inches thick with a well-defined cross on it, apparently a grave marker. The possible link between the two reveals an interesting story. In October, 1973, the stone was found buried near the church by the Rev. Delmar Gusdal's son, Nolan, and his neighbhor, Raymond Nesbitt, in the Gusdal's back yard along 100th pi. between Winston and Beverly aves., where the boys, having dug up an old pickle fork, were searching for further treazure. The lower corner had been broken off, but it was discovered later. Speculation about this relic of the past led Ridge Historical society's Robert White, first president and now historian for the organization, to survey the available information in an ef- fort to unravel the mystery of the cross of stone. From the Andreas history of Cook county, 1884, and an unpublished paper "Two - Daughters of Soldiers of the American Revolution," written by Alice Howe in 1955, White was able to piece together the Wilcox story. Orginally the land purchased by William Wilcox when he came from New York state belonged to Jefferson Gardner and extended from 95th to 107th sts. between Prospect and Racine aves. get-away ' t soft-sided luggage Itdl-Wl -(·«««.
