RE: Rosa DeHay Williamson
Hi Arleen,

Last info I was given some time ago is my grandfather RB Williamson is buried at the family area at Laurel Land, but he has a unmarked gravesite. It is a long story and a bit of a mark against the families good name but he is still my Grandfather.

I have a family photo, which I will have to find of all the Williamsons and spouses and children taken in Tyler in the early 1900's. I will find it and then send you a copy.

Also one of Bill Williamson's market in El Paso, Texas. How well I remember visiting that as a youngster.

There was also another Williamson, Emma she married Frank Wiesenger *sic* who I would visit as a teen in Riverside California, she was a sibling to my Grandfather

I think email is best for now. OK?

Just email me and I will get you all the pictures and info I can. OK?

Rosa Dehay

I found your info on Find a Grave.

Rosa Dehay was my Great Grandmother, she had several more children than the ones you listed. My Grandfather was Rafe(Raif) B Williamson, he was married to my grandmother Georgia Lee Alston, and they both lived in Tyler, Texas. They did divorce and my Grandfather is also buried in Laurel Land Cemetery. Their only child was my Mother Norma Loraine Williamson, Hufford, Spear. She passed away March 26th 2005.

If you need more info, I can get you in touch with my cousin Bill Williamson.

Sending hugs,

Catherine (Cathy)

RE: Elizabeth Winkler Parker & Pleasant Parker
Just noticed your message. In the ensuing year, I've found that the Parkers' and Neidigks', after the union of Frederick Neidigk and Eugenia (Jennie) Pate Neidigk, the Parkers' and Neidigks' are double related. This was due to Jennie being the 1/2 sister of Mose Washington Oliver by their mother's first husband. Not sure as to how to work the links; just interested in gaining more knowledge from other co-interested sources.

RE: PFC John R Blackstock

That is his military rank, Private First Class. It does not affect the searches because it has an extra box all to it's own. When you add a memorial, there is a special box for military persons where you can select a rank. It is the same as adding Mr. or Jr. but it won't count it on the search engine. Since the family requested a military stone for him, and he is buried in the veterans area, I included his rank.

I should also mention that the area he is buried is in the old Potter's Field and mass burial from the Cholera outbreak. The cemetery has hills and the highest point in Sacramento is within it's property lines. When the Great flood happened the citizens actually lived at the cemetery, and hundreds of tents sprung up among the headstones. But that area of the cemetery was a natural low area. Back in 1850 and 1852 it was used for the Cholera victims. There was a bad outbreak that killed over 3,000 people within a month. Most of the population fled, and most were forced to leave their dying family to escape with what little of their family remained healthy. Several hundred victims were buried in this low area and dirt was brought in from the river.

Where the Sacramento and American Rivers converged there was a really band point that caused shipwrecks so they were widening the river there by removing soil. They used that soil to fill in this low area as they were burying the dead. We lost so many so fast that they were literally stacking them like cord-wood in a very elegant ballroom, with carpets and chandeliers. Later it didn't seem fitting to maintain a building that was such a place of heartbreak, so that elegant ballroom was torn down and it is still a bare spot in the city today. It is located in the historic Old Sacramento, which has many shops and museums.

The low area has no markers, and over time it sort of was forgotten about as the tragedy lost it's sting, so to speak. So more dirt was brought in to level it off and it was used for a Potter's field for awhile. But since they were basically unknown burials with no markers, more dirt was brought in and it was made into a veterans area. There were so, so many of our boys lost in the Great Wars, so they needed to find a large area rather quickly. There are even veterans buried in old roads and walkways that were converted over to burial plots.

John Blackstock is buried in the larger field once used for the Cholera victims. There is a monument stone located nearby.

If you copy the lat and lon that I am including below at very bottom, and paste it google maps while in the satellite view, it should bring you to about where his grave is located so you can see the area. The Cholera memorial is to the left and looks like a grey square stone sticking up. There are no veterans buried in a square 30 foot or so area around it so it's just bare grass. John's grave is about 19 spaces over from either direction, so about in the middle of row 3. And further on to the left you can see another grassy area - that is the American Legion lot. Just to the south of his grave you can see how the graves run in the other direction? That is a different cemetery. And if you pan over to Riverside Blvd area you can see how all the plots in the old cemetery are sectioned off into square family lots. They mostly all have low brick walls around them. However notice that there is short rows of marble stones about 6 to a row? That is another veterans area that they had to place in an old roadway. They is mostly from the Spanish American War which also claimed many of our young men. I hope this helps!

Have a great day,

RE: Kittie King
I generally take photos of any adjacent markers with names similar to my 'target' marker. Don't remember any in her case. What is her husband's name?

RE: John W Kimbrough
I don't know of any unmarked graves near Annie and John Kimbrough, but it is entirely possible. I discovered many graves there when I did a survey of the cemetery that the cemetery association didn't have record of.

If the parents were living there at the time, I would go ahead and put the child's grave there.
