Thank you so much for adding the picture of the grave of Mariann "Mary" Bettencourt Silva Memorial# 138692636. Do you mind if I put the picture on my family tree?

RE: Benage Wheelock's burial site
Thank you so much. I will contact her. Benajah is certainly a mystery. I appreciate all the support and time

RE: The Street Family
Hi Denine, Thank you so much for my family plot information. I live in Colorado but I will be visiting Sonora in May and I will call you. I have copied the plot information that you provided and I will bring it with me to the cemetery. I am excited to visit my great grandparents' plot, thank you so very much for finding it for me!
Always, Catherine

RE: The Street Family
Hi Denine, Thank you so much for the Street Family plot information, it sounds like you did indeed find my great grandparent's plot.
I live in Colorado but I plan to visit Tuolumne this Spring. I am hoping that you can tell me the directions to the Street Family plot at the Sonora IOOF Cemetery, I understand the cemetery can be confusing. I will try to locate the plot on my visit.
Thank you again for your time & effort. You are an angel!
Thank you, Catherine

RE: Sonora City Cemetery
Here is what someone sent me for his obituary which you might find some clues.
At Pooley's Ranch, Dec. 14, 1891, Benajah D. Wheeloch, a native of New York, aged 60 years.
--The Union Democrat, Sonora, Tuolumne County, California, 19 Dec 1891, pg. 2, col. 5

Last Tuesday word was brought to town that B. D. Wheelock was found lying dead in the road which runs through the Pooley ranch and connects with the main county road at Blanket Creek. The Coroner and Sheriff went to the place and, after an examination of the deceased, concluded death resulted from natural causes and no inquest was held. On last Monday afternoon, at 3 o'clock p.m., Mr. Pooley's wife observed deceased passing her residence, leading three horses up the road. About fifteen minutes later she noticed the horses returning without Mr. Wheelock. On Tuesday morning Frank Connelly was coming down the road and discovered the deceased lying flat on his back in the middle of the road. It is mere conjecture as to what caused his death, but as is usually the case in sudden death heart disease is attributed as the cause, and that is supposed to have caused Mr. Wheelock's death. Deceased was in Soulsbyville on Monday, and received small change for a twenty dollar gold piece from W. H. Barron, who reports Mr. Wheelock to have been in an unusually cheerful mood. The change was found on the deceased. His remains were brought to Sonora Wednesday and interred in the City Cemetery.

Sonora City Cemetery
I noticed in a post from about a year ago that you were going to seek out a cemetery map for the Sonora City Cemetery. I was wondering if you had at luck with that and or if you happened to see the name Benage Wheelock at all.
