This study briefly reports on the search for one burial, and the excavation and removal of one additional burial from St. Johannes Cemetery in Bensenville, Illinois. This represents a second phase of activity at this cemetery by Chicora Foundation. The cemetery began in the first half of the nineteenth century and continues in use today. It was historically associated with the German-American community of small farmers that settled in the area and at least into the 1930s was still called the Evangelical St. Johannes Kirche and Cemetery. Today the cemetery includes about 1,400 burials on the roughly 2.5 acre cemetery and church lot.
