I live in Santa Cruz, CA with my husband of 46 years. I am working on trees for each of our families. I have appreciated the photos that have been shared with me and I am happy to do the same.|

No problem. It is always interesting to visit the small out of the way cemeteries.

Just wondering if you are related to Robert Spafford and if so, if you would have any idea where his mother Elizabeth Boice Spafford Nicholson is buried. Thanks!

Thank you so much! First thing on my list of things to do "WHEN" I hit the lotto is to repair all of the markers in OHCC!. Well a girl can dream, can't she?
No bother at all,I sent you a email.

Yes!!!! The stone was his! The little square of concrete had no visible markings until I poured water on it and like magic all the words showed up immediately!!!! I had brushed it off earlier this evening and found no markings at all and it wasn't exactly where the new cemetery worker said it should be. It is definitely raised!!!! Rests between LaCosta and Martin stones in Cooper Section, lot 31, grave 6.

BTW friend Sharon, I turned the list of searches at Ottawa over to Ethel King Cook, the Ottawa chief, today. She is going to get her hubby, Sammy, the cemetery caretaker, to look these up and I readded the Geboe's to that list. Will keep you posted.

Sharon, We went out today and spent a good deal of time searching for your stone. I would have told you we found nothing but looking closely at the picture you have posted, I am not so sure now. We are headed back out there to doublecheck a stone that looks just like this but no visible words...just looks like a square of rough concrete....if that is it, it is raised...if not, I'm afraid the stone might be gone altogether. We will be right back...like a dog on a bone, Sharon...a dog on a bone! LOL
I'm so happy to have helped you find her,growing up my Aunt's house faced this cemetery and it alway's bothered me how they removed the stones,People called it dead man's park but as a kid's I thought they were joking.so I am glad to be entering the names now,I hope it help's alot of people and I can transfer all of them to family.If you go on the Whittier public library site they have put old newspapers up you can enter the year they died and their name and maybe get an obituary I have done it for alot of the people buried here,sometimes there is nothing.I added a pic of her marker from the museum sorry about the fence but it was the only way to get it.
