RE: looking for Lost Relative Buried here
You're welcome.

At Woodlawn Memorial Park, the term Potter's Field/Northside was only used until 1936.

Prior to 1936, it appears the cemetery simply did not track the specific physical burial locations in that general area, using only the notations of "P.F." and "Northside" on index cards. After 1936, there are sectional maps and relatively good documentation.

We've worked with all available records, and neither we, nor cemetery staff, have found evidence of any additional records or possible ledgers that document this area in any detail, prior to 1936. In fact, the earliest published transcription, made in 1951 from the "Sexton's Records 1871-1951" simply says "P.F."

Sorry there isn't anything more helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email us at the address on our profile page.

His page was posted by someone other than us, and is here:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=9571319

If you're asking about a specific plot location, the area currently known as Northside was previously considered the "Potter's Field," and covers the area of today's Sections 1-1, 2-1, and 3-2.

No additional information is known about Northside burials, other than they are somewhere in these Sections. As we photograph the entire cemetery, we occasionally run across markers in this area and then document the exact location as best as we can. Unfortunately, there is no indication in the records that a marker was placed for him.

Sorry we can't be more help.....

Hello,
I went to the cemetery last weekend in attempt to fulfill your requests however, the office was extremely busy and I was unable to get in. If you call them and get the exact grave/plot number and location I will be able to easily fulfill your request. Please add the info. to the memorials, along with any other individuals within the same cemetery you'd like pics of and I'd be happy to go back. :)

I wanted to let you know I went through the rest of the lower Jerome cemetery a couple of days ago & even walked through the portion I've been through before. If Celia had a headstone, it's either not there now or is unreadable. There are so many graves who are only marked with stones piled on them. Many headstones are broken. I did find several small graves, but none that were marked. I'm so sorry, I really was hoping I'd find something for you to indicate where she is there. I'm going to assume that she must be in one of the small graves that are only marked with stones. I will be posting all my photos at a later date after I get home.

I think a lot of those houses up there didn't have numbers on them. Have you ever been to Jerome? The roads are so narrow & winding,on a mountain.Roads branch off the main one that I'd almost be afraid to drive a car on, for fear of falling off the mountain or not being able to turn around! Where they lived is a nice little area at the base of the town,with lots of trees, sort of secluded, with tiny little houses.Celia was jsut 2 months older than my grandmother, who grew up in Jeorme-I've looked at the town before & wondered that it was a miracle that any child grew to adulthood there! As for the cemetery, it's a sad thing.I think it was forgotten for many,many years & fell to pieces.My mother & I found it by accident over 10 years ago & you could barely tell it was a cemetery,with all the weeds & mesqite trees covering nearly everything. A couple of groups have tried to work on it since then & put it in order. But many of the headstones are broken, or the words eroded away. It's a failrly large area & some of the graves are under bushes, so it's almost a hide-n-seek game. There are graves covered in concrete slabs that have sunk into the ground. Many markers are home-made, either out of cement with hand drawn letters, iron pipes, wood crosses, natural sandstone,etc. Some are all in spanish, which I don't read, so I've been working with google & my less than basic knowledge to translate. some. So even if Celia had a headstone, chances are that it's not readable now. When I go back, I will be sure to go through the remaining part I didn't get to. I'll also walk back through & take new pictures of the smaller ones that may be children, I notice on the pictures I took, that you can't tell the size of the graves. I'll be sure to let you know if I find anything or not.

I photographed at least 90% of the cemetery this last summer & did not see Celia's marker. I don't live near there, but I'm going back out in a couple of weeks to visit & will finish at the cemetery,Hopefully I'll find Celia's. Unfortunately, there's a good chance It can't be found. The majority of the grave markers are unreadable or not there at all, I have 75-100 photos I took that I'm getting ready to load into Find A Grave that will be listed as 'unknown'. I don't see a residence address on her death cert.,or I'd offer to take a photo of their home at that time.I'm sorry, I wish I could do better. Celia was such a beautiful little girl, who died in a very tragic way.

No problem. It was very easy to find her once I had her correct last name. You are very welcome.
