I am slowly adding to this site photos of grave markers at San Carlos Cemetery, the City of Monterey Cemetery and El Carmelo in Pacific grove. Please note that many grave markers (especially in El Carmelo in Pacific Grove) are worn, covered in moss/lichen, broken and/or overgrown with grass and weeds. I have not been able to clean these markers due to time constraints. If a photo of a marker is not readable...please request another and I or another Find A Graver will clean if possible.
Feel free to copy photos for your own private use....but do not add to other websites, online family trees or other public sites without first requesting permission. If I have posted a photograph that you would like to replace.... please post your photo and then let me know and I'll delete mine. I have added many portraits taken off of markers, some of which are "not the greatest"....but better than none.
If you are a family member of any that I've created, please let me know and I can transfer them to your care (as long as they are not in my family) I am not a grave "collector" and am happy to transfer to family. But, I'm not a mind reader...you have to request a transfer. Go to edit...and write a note under 'other' edits.
I only make these memorials as a service to the genealogical community.
RE: Alexander Eagleson Wilcox Here is how I have his ancestry: John b. unknown date in England; John II, b. abt. 1625 in England; Ephraim, 1672; John, 1712; Joseph, 1746; Joseph, 1791; Charles Cornelius, 1835; and Alexander, 1873. I am descended from John 1712's brother Janna Wilcox b, 1701. John I was one of the original proprietors of Hartford, Connecticut.
RE: Wilcox I think you must be referring to Alexander Eagleson Wilcox and Alice Bell Van Wart. It looks like you have already edited their memorials. Thank you. I am a very distant cousin of Alexander.
RE: Wilcox Can you tell me which Wilcoxes you are referring to? I have sent in quite a few edits. Yes, I am a member of the Wilcox family and I do extensive research on the descendants of John Wilcox, one of the founders of Hartford, Ct.
I think you may be right about Deborah that she is Mary's sister, and that the "Mrs" has been added for some reason.
And I also had a member of my ancestors waiting until their only daughter was 7 years old before getting married. This may have been because they had to wait until one of their parents passed on. That's what I have been told.
Can I ask how come there are 2 headstones for the same people?
RE: William Douglas McDonald Thanks for your efforts. This is the friend from the 101st Airborne in Vietnam. His family (American) was held by the Japanese in the Philipines during WWII for a while. My husband is saddened by Doug's passing but is relieved to have final determination. Thanks again.
