Lone Pine Pioneer Cemetery
Hi Charlene,

To directly answer your question, no I have no documents for the Lone Pine Cemetery. What graves I have posted were of my kin, and I had to literally pull weeds and move tumbleweed to search for them. I don't live in the area so I cannot help you with the names of any local researchers.

There are several other cemeteries in the Lone Pine area: Pioneer, Old Lone Pine Cemetery, Mt Whitney, Depot Cemetery, Earthquake Burial site, etc. I know there are at least two more. None are really documented. The 76% rating you see on Findagrave is misleading. It only means that of the burials that are listed by Findagrave members, 76% are photographed. There could be many more burials not listed.

Two things to mention. Several of my kin from that era lived in Lone Pine but were buried in Bishop (Inyo County) at the East Line Cemetery. Also some others were moved to the Los Angeles area after their death. I have no explanation for it, because none were wealthy, and in the early 1900s this must have been a real task.

The Lone Pine library was a good resource, and this is what I have for their contact:
P.O. Box 745
Lone Pine, California 93545
(760) 876-5031

They might be able to offer some suggestions where you can find some records. Also the museum in Bishop has the historical society, and they are very friendly:
Bishop Museum & Historical Society,
P.O. Box 363
Bishop, CA 93514
(760) 873-5950

I have no web address for them.

The only other possible contact I have for you is
for the Mt Whitney Cemetery district, and again this may be an out of date contact:

Linda Haun
Mt. Whitney Cemetery District
Box 1202
120 S. Main St. #2,
Lone Pine, CA 93545

Beyond that all I can wish you is "good luck." I've put Adeline's name on my "to do" list for my next trip to Inyo county, and I will keep a look out for her in print or in the cemetery.

Take Care,

Hi I am having a problem.

Christoph Heinrich Overbeck or Christopher Henry Overbeck (Americanized)and spouse Caroline Catherine Bierbaum are both buried in two places.

You have them in Saint John Lutherian, and "Preserving the Past" has them in Luana Cemetery memorial #80397806, who is right?

I live up in Terrace, British Columbia, Canada, so access to Iowa to check tomestones just isn't practical at the moment.

Now do not get me wrong I REALLY do appreciate everything everyone does on Find a grave, research has been fabulous due to the work everyone has done here, just would like clarification on this one.

Thanks Doug.
