The Path to Bachelors Grove

Alvin Rick was killed in a car accident at age 30. His grandfather was Benjamin Rick ,  who is listed as owner of lot #35  on a hand drawn plot map of Bachelors Grove Cemetery, the only piece of "official" burial documentation that exists. Benjamin and his wife Alvina  are buried in Lyons, Il, just a few miles from Bachelors Grove.
