VOLUNTEER DOLORES GARCIA REPORTED: IF HE WAS IN THE CHINESE CEMETERY, AND WAS BORN IN CHINA, THERE IS A VERY GOOD POSSIBILITY THE REMAINS ARE NO LONGER THERE. FROM WHAT I'VE FOUND OUT RECENTLY, AT THAT TIME, THOSE WHO WERE BORN IN CHINA HAD TO BE RETURNED TO CHINA WITHIN 100 YEARS OF DEATH. THEY WERE CONSIDERED THE "EMPORER'S PROPERTY". I HAVE BEEN TOLD, TOO, THAT THE BURIALS IN THE CHINESE PART WERE QUITE SHALLOW -- I SUPPOSE TO MAKE EXHUMATION EASIER WHEN THE TIME CAME. IN THE WHOLE OF THE CHINESE PLOT THERE ARE ONLY A COUPLE OF STONE MARKERS. THERE IS SOME SORT OF DEPRESSION OVER EACH GRAVE WITH SOME KIND OF "UNMARKED" MARKER IN THE DEPRESSION. AND I WAS TOLD YESTERDAY THAT ONE OF OUR VOLUNTEERS HAS UNCOVERED SOME VERY INTERESTING THINGS OUT THERE WITH HIS WEEDEATER. I AM GOING TO TRY TO GET OUT THERE AGAIN NEXT WEEK. HAVE BEEN TOO OUT OF IT TO WALK THAT FAR THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS. AND I MIGHT YET FIND THE GRAVE OUTSIDE THE CHINESE PLOT. I HAVE SEEN SOME CHINESE SCATTERED HERE AND THERE, BUT I KIND OF FEEL THAT THEY WERE LATER BURIALS. THERE WAS, OF COURSE, A LOT OF PREJUDICE AGAINST THE CHINESE HERE WHICH DIDN'T END UNTIL SOMETIME INTO THE 1900s. I MIGHT JUST RUN PAST THE CHINESE CHURCH -- AND ANCIENT ONE -- AND SEE IF THEY CAN BE OF ANY HELP.

FAG Volunteer - I HAVE CONFIRMED THRU COUNTY RECORDS THAT SOON AAK WAS BURIED IN MARYSVILLE CEMETERY ON 8-23-1880, BUT I HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED EVERYTHING THERE WITHOUT FINDING ANY MARKER FOR HIM.
