Karl Heinrich Stahlhut and his wife, Engel Maria Dierks Stahlhut are listed in the records of Immanual Lutheran Church, Palatine, Illinois as members.  The records also give the death and burial dates for both.  At this time, it is not known for sure where they were buried.  However, since Union Cemetery was the cemetery for Immanuel Lutheran, it is logical to assume that is their burial place.  Laverne, the church secretary, walked the cemetery on March 17, 2002 looking for gravestones.  She didn't find any, however there are some that are so worn that they are blank or illegible.
