Robert Dallis Mayo death date
While I know that our cousin, the late Toy Anderson Mayo, put a new grave marker on Robert Dallis Mayo's grave with the year of death as 1927, I always thought the year of 1927 was a "guesstimate."

I turned up evidence tonight that shows Robert Dallis Mayo died May 9, 1931. This information is from the application for a headstone that W. P. Shackelford completed for the War Department to get a headstone for a military veteran; a copy of the original application appeared tonight on Robert Dallis Mayo's page on my family tree on

I also found Robert Dallis Mayo on the 1930 US federal census. He was 85 years old, living in the household of W. P. Shakelford & wife Nancy A. Mayo Shackelford in Tishomingo Co, Mississippi.

Nancy Ann Mayo Shackelford was the niece of Robert Dallis Mayo. Toy Mayo wrote in his book on page 205, "Nancy Ann Mayo Shackelford (daughter of William James David Mayo) called and asked what Dallis was doing. She said she would like him to come stay with her . . . Robert Dallis went and stayed with the Shackelfords until he died."

I went to the cemetery yesterday in attempt to fulfill your request however, the office was extremely busy and I was unable to get in. If you call them and get the exact grave/plot number and location I will be able to easily fulfill your request. Please add the info. to the memorial, along with any other individuals within the same cemetery you'd like pics of and I'd be happy to go back. :)

RE: Starnes
The Odd Fellow Cemetery was the original cemetery in Paso Robles. In the late 1800's or early 1900's the Paso Robles Cemetery district was formed and a larger cemetery was established immediately next to the IOOF cemetery. A few years later, teh IOOF cemetery was incorporated into the Paso Robles District Cemetery. So today they are the same cemetery. I am not sure why they are listed seperately. I am attempting to locate the 5 or 6 graves without photos listed in the IOOF cemetery. There are just 2 graves listed in both cemeterys, Lucy is one of those.

Camilla Jane Mayo
Geri, FYI Your memorial for Camilla is in the wrong cemetery. You should delete this one and place her in Corona Sunnyslope Cemetery. your cemetery only has 5 memorials where Corona's has thousands. CRob

No harm done. I thought you had taken the photos, but you were the one who had requested them, right? I think Gail is new at this and didn't realize that you would be posting the photos she took. Take your pick of the photos.

Please don't post photos that others have claimed. It makes for double work.

RE: Elvira Vuughan

I transcribed her stone's inscription into a caption that will come up when you click on the picture. You already had most of it except that her husband was killed in the war (probably buried on a battlefield somewhere which is why she is buried with her father).

Sorry, I did not transcribe his stone.

Wynonah Lacy Zimmermann
The cemetery has no record of a headstone for Wynonah. She is buried in plot 5-15-121; and I believe that is the same plot as her husband who has a military stone. We walked to the gravesite and photographed her husbands stone. Sincerely, Janie.

RE: Also confused

Please let Maryca post the pictures. I have not taken pictures. Please , no apologies necessary. I was just confused about what was happening. Thank you for the reply and for the offer. Maryca deserves to post and take credit for finding these people for you.

Wishing you a prosperous New Year,

Also confused
Hi Geri, sorry for the confusion.

Maybe I'm not understanding how this all works just yet.

I got an e-mail message saying that a request for a photograph had been requested. Before I go out to a cemetery I try to make sure the person has not been claimed or that a photo does not already exist somewhere.

I could't find Raymond or Pearl listed for the Willamette Memorial Park. I thought that was curious, so I looked for a memorial for either of them, focusing on the cemetery. I found nothing listed that way; even more curious. I then tried to find memorials under their names. I found nothing for Raymond but did manage to bring up one for Pearl. That is when I saw the pictures of the grave stones.

Am I not understanding how this works? Please clue me in.

Raymond F. Ortiz and Pearl Haynie Ortiz
Hello again,

I just went to Pearl's memorial site. It has a picture of both stones plus an extra of Pearl's side already posted there. Can the photo of both stones be added or linked to Raymond's site?

I'm pretty new at this so I don't yet know how it all works. It doesn't make sense to take another picture when one is already posted.

Have a Great New Year!

RE: Jane Cotton

I don't live in Missouri and so I don't know whether there is a headstone or not. I added this cemetery from the reading that was posted on the Miller county Missouri genweb page.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

RE: Josie - -
Nope - happily Josie is just on the edge of the swamp, although Virginia's side of the stone was muddy. A Christmas tree is set up to the right of the marker - which fell over and scattered some of the decorations over it. On a bright summer day the area will be nice and dry and beautiful. It really is hard to find, though. They mix tiers and rows and lots and plots in section "E". The boundries are not fixed either. Good luck if you go there.

Josie - -
You must work at the cemetery to find her. 3rd time going there is a charm, but a lady from the office had to hold my hand. Rain yesterday sort of flooded the area - it is hidden anyway; the markers are very confusing. Very nice workers there, quite helpful all.

Ortiz surname
I went to the Miller Cemetery in Millersburg, Linn County, Oregon. I walked the entire cemetery twice (it is a very small cemetery). There are a few "newer" graves, the newest being 2003. I did not, however locate any grave site with the Ortiz surname.

I tried to post "a problem" at find-a-grave but cannot locate a memorial site for your submitted names.

I will do a little more local research to see if I can find any other burial information.

Best of luck in your search,
Doris Bartish
