For the known information about Mr. Carlisle, sometimes misspelled as "Carlyle", refer to the article at http://www.scgsgenealogy.com/LACC-History.htm, where he is referred to as "the diamond-toothed gunshot victim". He was the (or "a") founder of the L.A. City Cemetery, aka, "Protestant Cemetery", "Fort Moore Hill Cemetery", "Fort Hill Cemetery" and "The Cemetery on the Hill", from which he and his grandson, still-born William J. Brodrick, Jr. were the final dis-interments. Little Mr. Brodrick shares this crypt with his grandfather.
Mr. Carlisle was killed in "The Los Angeles OK Corral" gunfight at the Bella Union Hotel on July 6, 1865. As he was dying, he killed Frank King.
His diamond teeth were well-known and, in 1907, then-Mayor Arthur C. Harper, at the request of the cemetery watchman, discovered that Mr. Carlisle's face (including his teeth) had been removed by grave robbers.
In 1947, he (and his grandson) were moved to this location at Rose Hills.
He was never buried in San Bernardino.
