RE: Claudia Walne
I just heard back from Sunset View and they tell me that Claudia McCann is buried in an unmarked grave next to her husband, in Palm 3 Section, Row 33, Grave 3. Rev. E N Walne is in Grave 4. Thank You for calling this to my attention. Bill

Claudia Walne
How extraordinary. I've met some of her descendants and sent them links to the site, and they didn't say it was in error, and perhaps they didn't know. I will hold off making changes until I can get better information. Please keep me apprised if you learn anything more, and I will do the same. I had thought to contact a California veteran's group or women's veteran group, hoping to inspire them to do something special with the daughter's unmarked grave, but I haven't done anything so far. The daughter's cremated remains are in her father's grave. It may be that Claudia's remains were likewise cremated and interred the same way. Thanks for letting me know.

Haha! You sure can find 'em, eh? I've added the bio info. Thanks. I'm never too busy for you, Bernard. I welcome all of the information and stories you have told regarding funeral directors.

Take care,

RE: Union Cemetery

The names on the vaults are (left) Arthur Karpe and (right) Adelaide Karpe. Although in the picture on the website the sarcophagi appear to be sitting in front of The Last Supper, in actuality, they ARE its base. If you go to each of their memorial pages now, you will find pictures. The ones with the flowers in the urns are the ones I uploaded today. Hope this helps.

I'll be Stockton this afternoon, tell me which you are looking for and I'll give it a shot. Remember, they may not be the best quality, as I'll be taking them through glass doors.

RE: Sinnott-Weber
It's been a while since I visited the Weber Crypt, but I believe that there are possibly six to eight inside. 3 to 4 on both the north & south sides of the crypt, with glass entrance doors on the east & west sides. As far as, the pictures go, I either forgot to attach them to some of their memorial pages or I didn't take them, since it's difficult to get clear shots on the inside of the crypt itself. The outside, I do have many pictures of.

I searched for your LaChapelles and couldn't find them. So I checked the cemetery list for gravesites around where they are. Philomine is in Block 8 Lot 1, and Dr. Pierre LaChapelle is in Block 174 Lot 3. They are not buried in the same block, however, there is a roadway between the two blocks at the cemetery. I went back today after rechecking the lists and map, and found where Dr. LaChapelle is buried. I have posted the picture of the stone on his gravesite. I could not find a headstone or maker for Philomine. There are very few headstones or markers in Block 8. Unfortunately, St. Pat's is a very old cemetery and not very well taken care of. There are a lot of broken and unreadable stones in that area. So sorry I couldn't find a marker for her. If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know.
