Tombstone Amnesty, a standing committee of the Sonoma County Historical Society, is pleased to offer its support in the return of the top half of Petra Johnston's tombstone from Sonoma County to the Pilarcitos Cemetery. Because of the size and weight of the tombstone I will probably require assistance to unload the truck. No date has been set for the move; this can be worked out to be convenient for all.

Would love to speak to you about this mystery of how her top piece of the headstone was found 100 miles away from the cemetery she was buried in. Please contact me via my profile or my website which is linked on my profile. I want to write a blog about this.- Thank you

All the best.

re: Petra Maria De Jara Johnston at Pilarcitos in Half Moon Bay
Hello --

Today, my wife and I were visiting Green Valley Cemetery, just west of the town of Graton, in Sonoma County. In the middle of a large cleared area, away from all of the other interments, we saw a lovely old headstone that had been curiously propped-up, and seemed to be missing its lower half. The text engraved on the upper portion was stuck in my mind: "Sacred to the memory of Petra". Also visible was "wife" and "James". I've added a photo to the memorial.

When we got home, I looked up Green Valley Cemetery on Find-a-Grave, but there was no one listed there named "Petra". On a whim, I put "Sacred to the memory of Petra" into Google and was astonished to see the listing for the headstone of Petra Maria De Jara Johnston in the Pilarcitos Cemetery in Half Moon Bay! The text matches the description as do the carved cherub and woman. Surely this is the missing upper half of that headstone! How or why it ended up 100 miles to the north is a mystery, but I think it would be great if the two halves could be reunited.

Thank you for the burial location for John, or Johann Foahim Heinrich Bartels! He was my grandfather's grandfather. I suppose his wife is also there. Much appreciated!

Barb Thompson
Louis Sigal (died 9/1951)
I was an infant when my father drowned off Montauk Point (the Pelican disaster). I was told his body was recovered and he was buried, although I never visited his grave. I saw where "Maude" indicated his body was "lost at sea" and, I could not find a gravesite for his body so, it may well be, that is the case and this as the story my mother (now, long since deceased) shared to give us closure. Please help. My children are now grown and I'd like to provide an honest accounting of what happened to the man I never really knew.. my father.

Frank Terry, Jr.

I was at the cemetery in Half Moon Bay searching for James O'Cain and came across the gravestone for the Terry family. I noticed that there is an inscription for Frank Terry, Jr. on the side of the stone, so I photographed and posted it under Frank Terry, Jr. Now he will have a photograph of his own.

Hi Maude!

I noticed you posted a stone that I believe to be my great grandmother's. The stone says "Mary C. Bettencourt", but I noticed the transcribed record on the site says "Mary Bettencourt Cardoza" (with Cardoza italicized). Cardoza was her maiden name. But if it's not written on the stone, where did this information come from?

Thanks for your help!

RE: Rabbi Solomon Sprince
After some research and discussions, I think that the room was meant for books or mementos or religious icons, and that the deceased was probably buried in the ground beneath. My father's older brother told him long ago that there were supposed to be books in there. Another clue is the flimsy door. If a casket was kept in the crypt a much heavier and secure door would have been used to keep out the elements as well as vandals.

Thanks for your reply and interest.

Rabbi Solomon Sprince
In 2005, you reported the rabbi's body was missing from his mausoleum. Is there any way of finding out what happened to it?

RE: Bayside Cemetery
Hi Maude,

I don't know if I responded to you before. Thank you so much for replying. Death certificates saying Bayside is where the person is buried can be wrong. Mokom Sholom's death certificates all say Bayside up until the 1950's and part of Acacia also has Bayside on the death certificate.
