Just trying to track down my roots and help others on my journey. |
I am a volunteer at the Historic Sacramento City Cemetery, and spend most of my time photographing it and the Masonic Lawn and Odd Fellows Lawn Cemeteries which are next door. The volunteers at the City Cemetery are in the process of entering all the cemetery records from various books into one searchable database. They are just starting out with the lot deeds and sales, and will move on to the burial locations as well as histories and photographs of the more notable residents. There were over 30,000 burials at the cemetery. The Cemetery used to have 50 acres, including the property where the Masonic Lawn and Odd Fellows Lawn now sits. So many of the burials were originally part of the City Cemetery are now apart of the other two. Also to add to the confusion, there are a few smaller cemeteries that reside within the City Cemetery. One of them being the Firemen's lot, which the Fire Dept. still maintains. Also during the great floods, the New Helvetia Cemetery was damaged from flood waters and many coffins floated up and away. The entire cemetery was relocated within the City Cemetery and some of the relocated people could not be identified. There were also mass burials from the Cholera epidemic. The project underway is a tremendous effort to organize the piles of old records and deeds. Please be patient if the volunteers can't give you much information on a person right away. It is not a simple thing to just pick up a book and find the name, there are many, many volumes of books spanning back over a century. And some are not in order by name.

She would be my husbands 6th great grandmother. the following is a list of what i have for children.

|SRGF||RE: Permilia Drake|
You are very welcome. I think it says Dau. of O. & L. A. Drake just like Charles's marker. I don't live in Nebraska City or I would go back and take another look at her marker.

|A.C. Rogers||Agnes Ballinger|
According to our records, the tombstone for Agnes Ballinger should be in the vicinity of William Roten Ballinger's stone. I could not find her stone when I searched on Sept 11, 2014. So the picture I uploaded in for the area where she was buried.

Just found your transfer request for George and Della -- sorry it took so long to get you those transfers! I linked George and Della and added photos. About a year ago, I went and indexed every single niche in Cypress View's north building, so I'm glad that relatives are not only finding them, but requesting management -- thank you!!
If you come across any additional family members that I manage, don't hesitate to ask for them -- I'm happy to hand them over, and I likely already have photos, too.
