|gibcott||Coming to California|
I'm planning a trip to California and will be in Middletown May 12 and May 13. ( I'm driving my mom home with me.) Since the libraries in the area are closed on Mondays, are there any historical archives somewhere that I could see on Monday? I can go to the library on Tuesday morning. I'd love to get together while I am there. Which newspapers do you suggest I look through for an obit for my GGranddad? And which library would be likely to have them? He died Jan 18, 1898 at the hospital in Ukiah (Talmadge). I also want to drop off some copies of documents re: his service in the Union army during the Civil War.
Thanks so much.
Beverly (aka gibcott)

You are wonderful!!!
Thanks so much for taking this on for me. I heard so much about my Great Grandfather when I was growing up. It's so great to find out his final resting place.
I will try to put a folder together on him that I can send to you to put in the files that are being created.
My Great Grandmother died in 1910. She was living in Upper Lake and her obit appeared in the Clear Lake Press. She was Mrs. George W. Bradford by then (nee Sarah Emily "Emma" Rantz). I think they married in 1903. I wonder where she is buried, too. I haven't even begun to follow that trail. Her father and his family lived in the area, too. Her brother was W.Daniel. Rantz; their dad was Daniel Rantz, too. I'll list the other Adams men, just in case you find other Adamses in the Middletown Cemetery. There were some girls who didn't live long (Lily died at birth 27 DEC 1872; Etta died at 3 yrs 24 DEC 1873; Nellie at 3 days 26 MAR 1893)
The men: Daniel Franklin, Charles E (both buried elsewhere) possibilities for Middletown: Mordecai Elmer d: 10 JAN 1947; Walter Emmett d: 10 MAR 1941; Lorenzo Theodore, Jr. d:25 FEB 1918.
My granddad, William Emery (Emmett's twin) is buried in Fresno.
I hope your time off is for vacation!
Be well and be safe.

|gibcott||RE: Adams Grave at Middletown|
Thanks so much for helping me with this. Yes, I have definite proof that Lorenzo Theodore Adams was a Civil War veteran. He was with the 37th regiment of the Wisconsin Volunteers. I have lots of records on this part of his life. I found a piece of information that says that Mauldin's history of Lake county contains a list of veterans who are buried in the Middletown Cemetery and he was one of them (she typed it as L.J. Adams - don't know whose error had those initials). That same info listed L.T.'s daughter Mrs. Rose Francis as being in the same area, lot 147.
One of my questions is how a person finds out the plot and area; like what you have posted in the memorial. Plot 3 section 147 - I'm so curious about this. Is there still an Eversole Mortuary in the area? This was mentioned as a possible source of info on L.T.'s burial.
What ever information you can find, I will be so grateful.
Thank you again. We'll get back into communication when you return.

|gibcott||Adams Grave at Middletown|
I just noticed that you changed G.T. Adams to L.T. Adams. I was just beginning to write to you earlier this evening (I didn't think I had finished.) I have been searching for the grave of my Great Grandfather Lorenzo Theodore Adams for several years. When I looked up all the Adams family buried in the Middletown Cemetery and say G. T. Adams, Military Veteran, who died in 1898, I thought it might be him. I am really hoping that is so. I put in a request for a photo and a nice lady named Sara took the photo you see of the Evergreen section. Now, my question is, do you know for sure it's L.T. Adams? He died Jan 18, 1898 in the Mendocino State Hospital, where he had been for less than a month. His family lived in Middletown. There may be other Adams family buried there, as well. His daughter Drucilla Rosamond "Rose" Adams Francis, I believe is also buried there. She died in 97 or 98. (don't have the info at hand at the moment.)
What can you tell me about the documents where you got the original info on what plot L.T. is in? Cemetery? Mortuary? records? I will be ever so grateful if I can finally know his burial place and will "pay it forward," too.

|Deborah Vetrone||Photo request|
I claimed your photo request and then found this on the memorial - "Willaim and Gertrude Newman do not have a headstone. The plots are located at I-49-5 and 6 respectivley. This was confirmed by Resthaven."
What would you like a picture of?
