Was looking for site map for Graceland and found it on your site. Thanks. Since I was out there I photographed your father's site. It aligns with your google map and shows up as pale blur in left side of box.
You can see photos on findagrave.com.
I was able to pinpoint update my Google™ Earth KML map of my father's resting place in Graceland Cemetery, Chicago, IL, USA. (Un-check (or in Google Earth, fade) the overlay.)
I had made the map based on the following:

Dear Mr. Jacobson:
I am happy to fulfill some of your request. I can verify your father's cremation and burial here at Graceland; I can also provide maps to locate his grave. The maps are attached. I trust you to find the coordinates, so that you may mark your Google page.

Attached please find the following maps:
- Map of Graceland Cemetery
- Map of section B
These two maps should help you track the coordinates of your father's grave. I am unsure if Google maps will allows enough detail, so that your father's headstone is legible. However, the maps should provide a fairly accurate reference.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance:

Thank you for informing us that our researcher did not provide you with the correct information.
Our records have the correct information that Benjamin H. Jacobson died on 9/25/1990 and was cremated the next day, 09/26/90. For whatever reason, our researcher did not send you the correct dates. We apologize for the error.

Subject: exact coordinates of resting place Dear Graceland Cemetery, My father, Benjamin H. Jacobson, who died around 1990, I believe is buried at your cemetery. What I want to do is make a Google Maps link, for example [...] to the exact spot, to save in posterity on my website, as it seems unlikely I will visit it in person. Can you help me make such a link? I see there is much discussion: http://www.google.com/search?q=google+maps+cemetery+mapping. Thanks. --Dan Jacobson.
