Sara Palacios Casanova & Luis Casanova
Kristy,
I am not sure where they are buried. On my map for the Casanova section of the cemetery I have 8 unmarked graves. There is only one location next to the 'Gazebo' where there are two unmarked graves side by side. However I have no additional information on who may be buried there. Luis Casanova was born 18 Jun 1897 and died about 1927 in San Antonio. If I come across additional Information I will let you know.
Birth per Catholic Archives of San Antonio, Baptismals of Graytown 1854-1923 (Microfilm Roll VS-166), p.290 and death per Bexar County Records.

RE: Thank You (Casanova Cemetery)
Kristy,
Yes, the cemeteries are related to each other. The Casanova and the rest of the group of cemeteries are on part of the original 160 acres of land that belonged to Miguel Arciniega Jr. (my GG Granduncle). In 1857, Shortly after the land was purchased, Miguel died. His wife Ursula Gortari de Arciniega sold 5-35 acres strips of land starting in the 1870's. The Casanova cemetery and those directly south of it are on the portion of a land strip purchased by eight individuals with family ties to the Arciniegas and are also related to me.

PS
If you like any additional information just leave me a message.
