Ralph J. Gillespie
Is one of the few people buried in Gold Hill who had a wooden head stone that was still standing in 1998. That was until this year 2001 when some stinking Dastard stole it. I hope is ghost haunts the dastard who took it!!
I took a photo of it in 1998 but it didn't turn out so I was hoping to get one this year but I guess the ghoul was quicker. Any way getting back to Ralph All I could find out was He worked on The Virginia & Truckee Rail way until his death at age 51 of Pneumonia & Kidney failure on Nov. 12 1928.
***News Update*** The Wooden grave marker has been found and returned to Ralph's grave as of Sept 2002.
Many thanks to the person who returned it.
The two attached photos show you what the Gold Hill NV City Cemetery looks like today.
