Re: Karen Kay
I just found the mortuary that took care of Karen's disposition -- Autumn Funeral and Cremation. They cannot access the records for her disposition so don't know where or if they were placed in the Dayton Cemetery. Am now going to try and track down Lyon County records....

Re: Zwirtz
I will do some sleuthing for Herman E. Ella and Karen's burial/inurement places. Will look specifically for them when I do my newspaper research burial place. Karen, as you know, should be in the Dayton Cemetery unless, as the last surviving Zwirt member, she was cremated and placed, or not, where?

Re: Zwirtz
You are more than welcomed. Would you like me to call Mountain View cemetery to see if she is, or her ashes are, interred in that cemetery? Not exactly sure who to contact in Lyon County for the Dayton Cemetery -- something I must find out.

Re: Herman Zwirtz
Imogean --

Interesting that you contacted me, since I just finished walking and documenting the gravestones in the Dayton Cemetery (I live a hop, skip and a jump away from it). No, I am not related to Herman and Maxine, just a Find A Graver with a special love for our community cemetery.

As I was looking up info on Ancestry's Nevada Death Index so that I could accurately add place of birth and death for Herman, a memorial appeared that had already been done for Herman. It has Herman dying in Reno and buried in the Mountain View Cemetery. Since I had just seen his gravestone in Dayton's Cemetery, I called Mountain View Cemetery to see if they had a record of burial for him -- no, they did not. So Herman is, indeed, buried in the Dayton Cemetery. And, he died in Lyon County, not Washoe. There is no gravestone for Maxine close to Herman, and, I believe, not one in the cemetery since I spent 4 days walking all the rows except the historical part (which I am going to do next week if the weather remains beautiful).

I contacted the gal who did the entry with a request to change the cemetery and place of death yesterday so, will just have to wait and see when/if she changes it.

Hope this helps you in your quest.

RE: Ira Vulgamore
Glad to hear form you. We would be related to each other! Hope to share more info. on the Vulgamores. I made a memorial for Ira but I am not sure what cemetery he is buried in so I am hoping someone will be able to tell us exactly where he is buried. We probably should combine our memorials. I have info. in my bio. area that you can add to your memorial & you can make the links to his parents. Let me know when you are finished and I will delete my memorial for him. Keep in touch and I will try to help any way I can. More later, Marla. P.S. Feel free to e-mail me at my e-mail address if you like.
