Thanks much for this correction, I have you also sent Info for Lelia that appears to be married to her son, Warner?
I linked Jeremiah to his mother. Tks for the information. Geo
I am sorry I do not have the records for 100 Mile House cemetery, I simply took some photos when I was on Holiday.

|Chad Eugene Schneider||Sarah & John|
I take it from your last name that you might be related to Sarah and Garret? I am not related but love helping out when I can.
John P. Boyer
b. Canada abt 1862
d. Tacoma 18 Mar 1932
He was a carpenter and a house painter
His parents were Solomon Boyer and Jane Burke and they were both born in Canada.
The 1930 census was taken in April and Sarah died in March so John is listed as widowed. I don't know if they were married all the way up until she died, but the last city directory entry they show up in, together, is 1924 at 7041 S. Alder (and I believe that's where John was living when he died.)
I hope that helped a little.
|A. H.||Garret Gibson|
I transferred Garret to you. Just curious if your great aunt was his 1st wife Sarah or his 2nd wife Sarah? I see a Sarah Gibson in Sheridan, WY is listed as the widow of Garret J. in 1907, when this Garret is not, in fact, dead. His 2nd wife died in Park County in 13 June 1939, but I haven't verifed that she's buried in the Cooke City Cemetery. I'm a summer resident of Cooke City, trying to get the burials in Cooke City listed and interested in the history of the prospectors.

You are welcome. The pleasure is mine.
|Kim S.||RE: Higgins photos|
I'm not sure if you knew that the Winters Cemetery office had a huge fire years ago and all the records burned. There was a huge effort made to recreate them using public records and county/city historical data. The graves that were unmarked were not able to be accurately id'd.

|Kim S.||RE: Higgins photos|
Thanks for the kind words. Coming up on the 3rd anniversary of losing him, which is shocking to me. Feels like one year maybe.
I'm glad you're ok with the photos of the blank stone. I, too, would rather have a photo of grass WHERE THEY ARE than just a message saying "Unmarked grave". So pictures of plain stones are one step above that, though so much less than I'm sure you hoped for. :/
I have several family members whose graves are unmarked - in Texas and Minnesota. I really want to create a fund for all the cousins to donate what the can/want to and get a stone made for each of them, but especially for our great grandparents who came as old people from Sweden, and whose graves are unmarked. That's just sad and wrong. I need to move that up on my bucket list!

I'm sure you are disappointed that the markers aren't beautiful and full of wonderful information and eloquent inscriptions, but the family never put up any markers. The cemetery put blanks there as place holders, but that is all there is unless you and/or other family choose to have markers made and installed. I've taken and posted a photo of the family plot and of the unmarked slabs denoting the presence of a burial. I also included a close-up photo of the slab, but it is there as an example of the five. It is not known which of the five belongs to John or Christina. I'm sorry that's the best that can be done. :/
