I wanted to let you know that the photo that you attached for Eli VanGuilder's headstone, is actually Achsa VanGuilder. She does have a memorial, though. Her number is, 113020339 Thanks so much!

It's even worse. With one particular gravesite (William Williams) I asked for, they actually looked in an old book, then told me there were too many people named Williams, and they could not get a reference to go to a different book where the gravesite and plot numbers are recorded. I asked them to look closer, but there were so many Williams surnames and I think they didn't understand how American names work and they refused to research more. I don't think they understand common American Surnames. The woman who refused to help spoke poor English and actually had difficulty distinguishing between common American surnames and common first names. She was very nasty about all this. I have been dealing with Mtn. View for many many years, have an old family plot (1900) and bought a new plot about 5 years ago. It wasn't like this before. I suppose that the cemetery has changed because they recently opened a new Eternity Garden where they are selling multi-million dollar huge family sites. They are re-culturating the cemetery and have no interest in anyone who was buried there before the new rich family sites were developed. I've seen this situation before: old neighborhoods of Frank Lloyd homes in Vancouver neighborhoods sold for high prices, torn down and new 6 bedroom, 4 bath houses built in their place (1980's). I guess Mtn. View cemetery will go the same way. I suspect that they would like the non-endowed areas to just go away, so that they can develop more costly multi-million dollar family sites. I would not even be surprised if some day there is an accidental fire that destroys the old records and books. The have no interest in looking in the books, doing any research, or transfering the historical records of the cemetery to electronic files. Profit oriented only. No historical interest in what went before in this cemetery.
