|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
AKA Van Alstine Cemetery (by Charles Maguire)
To get to this cemetery, go north on Freeman Rd from Speedway. On your right, look for the gate next to the white fenced property. There is no parking and you must walk along the fence line about 1/4 of a mile to the east.
The cemetery is in excellent shape and is well cared for. (Some vandalism has occured in the past, but repair has been attempted.)
There are 52 unmarked grave mounds, 6 unmarked concrete topped graves, and 26 marked graves. Just outside the fence to the south is also one wooden cross under a tree, and further south there is a white fence around one grave situated next to two saguaros.
A death certificate that says the burial location is "Tanque Verde" may indicate burial here OR in Tanque Verde Ranch.
