Treasure Chest Thursday

Original receipt from Concordia Cemetery, Forest Park, Cook County, Illinois.  It is dated  2 Jun 1899 for purchase of plots in 1128, Section 9.  The receipt contains my Great Grandfather Theodor Miottel's signature and his brother Wilhelm Miottel.

Is is all written in German? I love anything that contains signatures. There is something very special about having that in your possession. Thanks for sharing!
