John Hart
Hello, I would believe this to be John Ernest Hart. He is buried in the same plot as Anna. I will try to locate more information to prove this information.

I hope we didn't photograph the same section of the cemetery.
I was posting pictures I took on Tuesday and noticed you just posted this one.
If you are working on photographing the cemetery...we maybe should work together so we are photographing in different sections and not duplicating ourselves.
Let me know...I am or was working in section A. I have done B. But not the mausoleum.

I saw the cemetery photo you posted for the Rusk Cemetery in Brown County, are you of any relation to this family? If so, we are cousins.

RE: Lawrence Casselman
Jeannie, I'll get back to you on this later. I'm sure you have correct info and my guesses were just that! I did get some info from the Calif Death index. I'm having a real busy day! We'll 'talk' later, okay?

Lawrence Casselman
Hi Jeannie. According to the cemetery records, Lawrence is buried next to his first wife, Cora (I have linked them) and next to his second wife, Lucile. I created a memorial for her and linked them, too. However, it seems as though her name was not added to the headstone. I will go out today and take another look, and a photo. Bayview Steve photographed the Casselmans in this lot, however he obviously did not know that Lucile was with Lawrence. I would ask him to copy his photo and place it on Lucile's memorial, but I have tried to contact him before on another matter and he never answered. I'm going to be there today anyway, so it is no problem for me to do this.

Best regards,

PS - Thank you for your kind words. This whole Find A Grave project is a labor of love.
