|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Single grave 75 feet north of Hwy 95 and 11.2 miles east of Hwy 359 in Hawthorne. It is 13.0 miles west of Hwy 361 in Luning. Unless you are very careful you will likely miss seeing this grave. It is not easy to spot even though it is right alongside the highway.
Note: 0.2 Miles west of this site is another grave with a cross but no marker.
Likely this man was a railroad worker who was buried where he died alongside the railroad line.
Original marker is in the Mineral County Museum to protect it from further deterioration. A replica is at the gravesite.
