Birth: Apr. 6, 1851
Death: Aug. 13, 1909

Located next to the Lemon Grove Historical Society Museum.

The plaque by the grave reads:

Anton Sonka was the patriarch of the Sonka family that led the growth of Lemon Grove between 1908 and the 1950s. His headstone, along with many others, was removed from the Calvary Cemetary in 1970 by the City of San Diego and dumped at Mt. Hope Cemetary for mass burial. In 1985 Lemon Grove Historical Society members rescued and stored the headstone. It was brought to The Parsonage Museum in 2000 and unveiled on this permanent site in 2004. 
Native of Austria
