Ernest George Klefbohm and his brother, Gunnar E. Klefbohm, were on board the Eastland when it capsized. Ernest perished while Gunnar survived.
Ernest had been married on January 1, 1915. He and his wife Marie were expecting a child: his son, Ernest, Jr., was born soon after the tragedy claimed his father.
Ernest, Sr. was disinterred from Rosehill in November of 1936 and reinterred at Ridgewood Memorial Park in Des Plaines, Illinois on November 21, 1936. His brother, Gunnar E. Klefbohm, was the person responsible for the move.
