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.

Hi Jeannie,

I went to Union Cemetery today to take a photo of the Bruner plot for you. I took pictures of all the stones in the Bruner family plot and have uploaded them all on Find a Grave. I think that there has been a mistake in listing Peter as Marie's husband on Find a Grave as Marie and Preston share a stone. However you probably know more than I do. I've left the memorial numbers and names for everyone below for you to review.

Dr Peter Charles Bruner # 123138924
Preston Lorraine Bruner # 125182532
Marie Louise Bonham Bruner # 123138923
Agnes Evelyn Bruner # 143771630
Angela Bruner # 133757703
