St Ann's newspaper clipping from the Chicago Heights (Illinois) Star: St. Ann, located West of Rich Township High on Sauk Trail in Park Forest on the site of the St Annes cemetery. The cemetery was the burial site for early pioneers before it was consecrated by a Catholic bishop in 1852, and was an indian burial grounds before that. The migratory Sauk indians had an encampment south of Sauk trail, and many arrowheads were found by the Weishaars during the spring plowing. Homeowners in this area should be on the lookout; they still occasionally turn up.
