|Bio and Links|
I am a native Californian. I went to school in Santa Rosa and married Vern Leete also from Santa Rosa. After being away for quite some time we returned to California and found the Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery in a mess. The weeds were thigh high because it had been abandoned. A group of teens from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints began rescuing the cemetery. Later that year the city included it in the "Hands Across the County" program. It took less then a year to give the cemetery the sense of dignity it deserved. Now it has natural beauty with its huge oaks and Vinca. Garbage was hauled away and gravel put on some of the graves. Walkways were cleared. Headstones were straightened and bleached. The pioneers of Santa Rosa are buried here and these young men and women understood the importance of honoring those that had established their fine city. |
In 1986 a young man named Adrian Seeser chose to list all the names in this cemetery for his Eagle Scout award. With his permission those names have now been added to this site in hopes it will help anybody that has family or friends they could not locate before.
It has been an honor to be a part of the reconciliation of this graveyard. It gives me confidence in the youth of our town. My hope is that you as a searcher will find comfort in what you find.

|Pamela Fowler Sweeney||RE: 29134898 Poulin Family|
The cemetery book specifies Cecile as being in the north half because the plot measures 20ft by 20ft and the monument in the middle divides it in half. The Poulin family is resting in the plot with George and Fannie Hillier. Cecile Poulin is next to George and Fannie in the back and the rest of the Poulins are in the front.
I don't think they are far apart enough to need that specification and I would probably leave it out.
Thank you for all your hard work Jeanie.

Certainly, I have transferred John's memorial to you. I'm actually not relative of his, I came across him while photographing the markers of Civil War vets buried in the GAR section at Mountain View Cemetery.

Jeanie: Thank you very much for transferring Mahala Elvira (GILMORE) GILLIAM at Santa Rosa Rural Cem, Santa Rosa, Sonoma Co, California to me.
|Leslie Sexton||Tryphena Davis Case|
Tryphena was my great grandmother. Her mother (Charlotte Yancey Davis)and father (Lemuel Atherton Davis) and her husband (William E Case) are buried here. I cannot find her grave. She died in 1900, before any of the three aforementioned. I have hit a brick wall and don't know where to look now. Any suggestions?
|Kathie L. Webb Blair||RE: 54280151|
I would be happy to accept any Davidsons you would be willing to transfer to me. I'm afraid I haven't done them justice and would appreciate being able to care for any you would be willing to trn to me. My 2grt. grandmother was Melissa (Davidson) Burkhart. Thank you so very much, I appreciate it so very much. With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, OR

I agree! It is a wonderful site! I have used it for years as part of Ancestry.com and just realized that I should be a contributor. I very much appreciate you having my family as someone that you have taken care of.... your choice on if you would like to keep Aunt Rickie. I appreciate you!
I live in Spokane, WA, but my parents live in Santa Rosa, so when I visit them I always go take a few more pictures.

I noticed you sent her several messages regarding making corrections, etc. Did she ever at any time respond to you? I have also sent a SAC to her regarding Franklin Adams.

Thank you so much for allowing me to manage these two memorials. I've already added his parents (who are managed by another relative) and his picture and am working on his bio now.
I'm so glad there are people like you who put non-relatives on Find-A-Grave so we can locate our lost relatives.
I really appreciate your transferring Frances Elam's memorial to me. It's great to have grandmother and great grandmother! Thank you so much for your hard work in establishing these fabulous memorials!!!
