RE: Hester
I know it was in the old section. I'm thinking more towards the road. I took that pic last fall on a trip there with my son who was wanting to leave the whole time. lol So I'm not 100% positive. I will discuss it with Penny when I see her tomorrow. ;)

RE: William R. Powell headstone
Did you click on the photo to read my text explaining the photo? Row 65 in section L2 (the entire row) is devoid of any markers, as shown in the photo and is reserved for indigents. If you go to (the Holy Cross data base) and enter L2 (section) and 65 (row), you'll get 6 pages of names that are buried in that indigent row. I put the flowers there because the marker in row 64 is grave 55, the same as William's. If you need help with, let me know .... be glad to help you!

RE: Arvilla Skivers marker
That's just a planter. I took that picture last fall. The sexton there told me that she was buried on that lot.

RE: Gordon children headstones
You are welcome - this cemetery appears to be maintained by the US Forestry Service so the headstones wont be buried anytime soon but will continue to erode since they have fallen and are now flat on the ground. If you click on the picture, I put the inscription in the caption for the one's you couldn't read. Hope this helps - Take Care, Jim

RE: Philip & Annie Mischkot headstone
Sharon, you are quite welcome. Best wishes as you continue your family research. As for picking dandelions, my grandmother and mom would go up into the mountains of NW Arkansas to pick wild greens with names like "mouse's ear" which I understand googling it is chickweed. Part of the family history!

What were her dates again?

RE: Mary (Connors) Sheehan
Colma is called the "city of the dead" because there are so many cemeteries. Perhaps she was buried in a another one? Maybe try Cypress Lawn? It is next door to Holy Cross.

RE: Strosnider & McDonald headstones
Yes, it is too bad that the cemeteries don't put those stones back up so they are not lost forever!

RE: Strosnider & McDonald headstones
You are very welcome! Yes, I think they are peonies, but they are kind of taking over the stone. A lot of the stones in that cemetery are totally covered by plants so that it is hard to read them. The other day when I was there I noticed they had started to clean them away from the stones. Glad they were taking the time to do that because those stones are old. Anyway, I could not find any of the Denny's you put in requests for. I found a few but not the ones you are looking for. Maybe there aren't any stones for them.

I need an answer by Friday morning, as I will be going out there Friday afternoon to get pix of the last 3. Otherwise, you will have to wait for a while till more requests for that cemetery to come in. It is a long way there and a dusty gravel road. Thanks, Jody

I went to St. John's cemetery today, but couldn't find Elizabeth. I know that she had a tombstone in 2000. Don't know if vandals got it or not yet. Sextant is also working on it. What we are wondering is if you know of other family members: I.E. her parents or others that she may be buried on their lot? I found all the rest except for this one.

RE: Ferguson correction
My pleasure Sharon,
Yes, Martha Jane (Price) Ferguson was Henrietta W. Ferguson's mother as well as Willis E. Ferguson. She was the wife of Wilbert A. Ferguson but I have been unable to find his grave.

RE: Patrick Rohan
I will see if I can find an obituary for you. I'm not sure if I can do it this week as we have company until Friday. I have several things I need to do at the Butte Archives so I will add this to the list. If I don't get it this week, I definitely need to go to the Archives next week.

About the way the cemetery is numbered. In about 1980-1982 the local organization of the DAR ladies (Daughters of the American Revolution) walked the cemeteries in Butte and transcribed the headstones that were there. For St. Pat's, they didn't have a map of the cemetery, so they sketched out their own map and lettered the blocks and numbered the rows. The cemetery did have a map and I'm not sure if they realized that or not when they created their own. The cemetery is broken down into numbered Blocks and lots within the blocks, and graves within the lots. I hope that makes sense. The DAR locations aren't wrong exactly, but they are very difficult to determine where the gravesites are within their lettered blocks. According to cemeteries records, they are not recognized by their system. I think the DAR sent the files to Rootsweb and that's how they got published. Not sure tho.

Because I volunteer for the Butte Archives, I was one of the volunteers who took it upon ourselves to "borrow" the cemetery records and scan them. I scanned have saved a copy for my own use for the purpose of findagrave and other research I do. I've learned pretty good how to find my way around the cemeteries and can usually find the gravesites if they are marked. If they aren't marked, of course, it is difficult to say exactly where a grave is located at time.

I hope this makes sense to you. If you have any questions, let me know. I will get back to you as soon as I can, and in the meantime, if you think of anything else you can email me.
