Missing my son, Mark Allen Israels. II.
November 20, 1988
July 6, 2012
Losing a child is the most horrific pain one will ever feel.

The "Hillside Cemetery" in Reno was my motivation for Find A Grave. I had been a resident of Reno for 20 years before I knew of its existence. I finally found where the Hillside Cemetery was located and when I went there I was so appalled, outraged and shocked at the condition of the final resting place for many of Washoe County's finest citizens.

I started researching the cemetery online and found a survey prepared by Dolores Samuels Young and Mildred Chandler Pressell, back in 1955. Thank God, these ladies took the time to record all of the headstones that were legible at that time. Without their survey who knows how many people would have been forgotten.

I try everyday to find some little piece of information for the people buried in the Hillside Cemetery.

May God bless you and keep you safe in his loving arms.

Thanks so much for the transfer. The McQuitty family who had so much Civil War history and were elbow to elbow with the Boone family they married into, give us a deeper, interesting look at how life was for them back then.

Love those Zinkers
Enjoyed your virtual cemetery of zinc monuments. I thought I was the only one with a virtual cemetery to those interesting monuments. We call them "white bronze."

You have captured some unique ones.

Best regards!

Would appreciate the transfer of this memorial as well. Do you know why Frederick Lincoln Gould and Allen Dolby Gould are designated as half-siblings? Any sources? A close Gould cousin gave me some of the history and it did not appear in her information. Thanks Donna
