The Attached Photo is Courtesy of the Wild West Museum on C Street Virginia City NV. I thank them for letting me copy it for find a grave, The Photo has no Photographer on the back but it does have a 3 Cent Tax stamp which would date it from 1863-65, There is a Inked ID on the back that Reads
" To my loving Klara In memory of my Younger days Love J.A. Cooper" I do not know who Klara was but he is buried alone in the grave. The Photos of his grave and the cemetery were taken in Sept. 2001.
