Lionel Barrymore - Actor, brother to John and Ethel Barrymore. Part of the famous Barrymore acting family, he is probably best known as Dr. Gillespie in the "Dr. Killdare" movies. He and his brother, John, did "Grand Hotel" and "Dinner at Eight" together (though they had no scenes together) and all three siblings (Lionel, John and Ethel) appeared together in "Rasputin and the Empress".

John Barrymore - (Original interment site) - Actor known as "The Great Profile", grandfather to Drew Barrymore and part of the famous Barrymore acting family (with his brother Lionel and sister Ethel). John was a great stage and screen actor, appearing in roles such as "Hamlet" and "Richard III" on Broadway and was a matinee idol during the silent era. He survived the change to talkies with ease, having a great voice honed by the theatre. His roles in movies like "Dinner at Eight" and "Twentieth Century" are classics. Sadly, alcohol became all consuming to him (as it is the family curse) and eventually became a sad parody of his former self. He descended into B-movies, eventually dying a hopeless alcoholic.
