RE: Rust Records
No, I'm not related. I do research for the memorials in our local cemetery to find family links especially for the Military graves.

Thank you very much for making the changes and links. FYI: 1900 census gives month of birth for Lucinda and John William & Arizona death record gives different day for death of the latter:
In the 1900 census, Maude Cate was living at 123 Marchant St., Vacaville in Solano County. She was born Jan 1862 in Calif., of a father born in Alabama and a mother born in Kentucky. She was wd., mother of 3, two living children. She was canvasser. With her are John, Son, b. Oct 1879 in Calif., of a father born in Arkansas and a mother born in Calif., [?]house man, and Richard, Son, born Sept 1884, same births as John, a student. Also in the household is Martha Miller, niece.

In 1910 Maud Cate is by herself at 617 Fourteenth St., Oakland Ward 4. She is 47 divorced mother of 3, two living, born California, father Alabama, mother Kentucky. She is the keeper of a lodging house.

John William Cate died in Phoenix, Maricopa, Arizona on 12 Mar 1915 aged 35, father's name John M.

Thank you so much for the photos of their headstones. I really appreciate it.

Your most welcome Kurt. Yes, it was a lovely day there today and it's a good time of year to get the nice green color in the photograph. I expected to stay 5 minutes and ended up talking to people there and stayed 90 minutes.

FYI, I also talked to the cemetery supervisor about the location, and verified no marker thru the Mendocino County historical society - triple-checked.

Thank you so much Kurt for your quick response in linking Mary to her parents.
Very much appreciated. I have been trying to track this entire Troutman line for a while now.

Clack burials, Oak Mound Cem
I was able to get a location for the 2 CLACK burials from the cemetery office. They are buried in Oakmound #139. This part of the cemetery is not endowed, so it can be quite overgrown and covered with leaves. I tried to locate these 2 headstones on 11/10/14 with no luck. I will try again, next time I am at the cemetery. It is really a lovely, old, hilly cemetery---fun to walk, see the old memorials, and read the stones.

Hi Kurt,

I see you have been very busy with documenting the graves in the Vacaville-Elmira Cemetery.

My family records show that my 2nd g-grandmother, Hattie Jo CUNNINGHAM Winton is buried in Vacaville, CA and I believe that Grave Memorial# 136145751 Hattie J Winton that you posted is her. The name and death date is consistent. Do you recall if there was a headstone or marker for her, and did you by chance take a photo of it?

RE: Burns
I talked to Diane and she had a binder comparing records with a physical survey of the cemetery that shows she is there but it's unknown where.

So at least there's an answer for her gr-gr-grandson; just no headstone to photograph.

Thanks again for your help.
