Caleta Furrer... oops
Okay, spoke to soon. She is buried with FIVE other people - Annie, Casper, and Louis Furrer, plus Mary Kislingbury and Peter Szukalski. I put info in the caption for you.

Caleta Furrer photo request, Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma, CA
Hi Annie, long time no talk!

I grabbed a photo of the plot for Caleta Furrer, which I will upload momentarily. She is buried with Louis and Casper, but Casper is the only one with an inscription on a HUGE stone. I saw that you wrote Hans Caster Furrer on your "note", so I took a quick look, and only see him listed in various places as Casper. I see they had four kids as of 1880 (Bella, Josephine, Mary, and Louis) and that Casper was a dairy man. I can't find anything under Hans Furrer or variants.

Section G2 is one of the easy areas to locate graves.

RE: The Curtaz family plot
Hi again!

Did a little digging for you. I actually made a memorial in the Holy Cross Colma cemetery for Otto, if you want to go look there and do a photo request.

I see now that Agatha was born in 1855 in Switzerland and immigrated to the US in either 1876 or 1880. Right before she died, she was living with Louisa (and her husband and kids in Hillsborough), who's married name in Ruegg. She is also probably buried at Holy Cross, but there are two Louisa's list and I am not sure which one is which, plus her middle initial in a few places is listed as J. Louisa's husband was Joseph B Ruegg and was 2 years younger (probably) than Louisa. Joseph B Ruegg is also probably at Holy Cross since the one listed there died in 1969.

I think Louisa was born after 1880 since she is not listed on the 1880 census, though Eliza was listed as a newborn in that same 1880 census. I can't seem to find much else on Eliza, though. I will take a look again later. Hope this helps so far, anyhow!

RE: William J. Karp
California Death Index 1940-1997 lists a William Maximilianjo Karp born 20 Jul 1908 and died 2 May 1979 in Sanoma, CA. There aren't a ton of cemeteries in Sonoma county so you might check there.

Furrer family
Albert and his wife Anita and many Furrer relatives are laid to rest at Santa Cruz Memorial Park in the old Mausoleum, rather than the IOOF cemetery in Boulder Creek, CA. I contacted the memorial's manager. Glad to help!

Agatha Curtaz, Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma

I saw your note on the photo request you did for Agatha. I sent an edit request to the owner of the memorial to add the plot info.

HOWEVER, I found out a lot of information for you. Yes, she should be the wife, because several Curtaz are buried in the exact same plot -including Benjamin, who's information (and a couple other Curtaz) I just entered into the database here!

A few of them were originally buried at Calvary Cemetery in San Francisco and then reinterred in Holy Cross later.

Contact me if you need more, but I added bios, removal cards, etc. to several of the memorials and if the memorials are owned by the other person, the info should be added soon. Some info is on mine as well, so you may want to click through the different Curtaz listed at the cemetery.

Joseph Christen
I uploaded the photo of the headstone that Joseph & Casimir share. If you double-click on it, you'll see that Joseph's name and date he died (1909) are inscribed near the top of the stone.

Christen family

There was a Clara F Christen (1885-1969), Jeanne H Christen (1915-1988), John E, Christen (1911-2003) and a William F Christen 1915-1967) in the same area of your William Christen 1888-1968. I don't know if they are any relations. I did take pictures if you would like, let me know. Eventually I will put them on Find a grave.
