Hi, edmusic...FindAGrave does not allow periods after initials anymore so I can't put "M." for this middle name.

RE: Rosenthal
So, edumusic, my only serious question about whether or not there were TWO Rosenthals who died in Tombstone in 1881 must be answered "NO," right...there was just the one...who has the "Rosenthal" marker in regular BootHill, but was recorded to be buried in the Jewish Cemetery there? That should really be straightened out at some time! I do believe the Jewish records did not list a first name for him; I had combed censuses to figure his name was "Frank," but how awesome what you found named him Joseph...just makes me SO happy to restore his identity to him...I'll have to see if anyone has listed him in ancestry.com...if he had family.

RE: MM Steinthal Memorial 59749077 Tombstone Hebrew Association
What a gift you've given me to be able to start off my morning thinking about the Tombstone Jewish Cemetery, ed. Thirty+ years ago, way before FindAGrave, there were only two cemeteries that tugged at me: Sleepy Hollow in Concord, Mass and this one.

When I literally stumbled into it in 1981, it was an overgrown mass of brambles. I wanted to immediately start cleaning it out, but was afraid of snakes...nearly cried to know who was buried there. My husband and I had met through politics so I thought that maybe Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater might know of some way to find these lost so I sent him a picture and expressed my consternation. He replied quite rapidly that he also found the condition of the Jewish BootHill upsetting.

Within a couple years, the Jewish Cemetery was declared historical and fixed up, but I still didn't know the ID of anyone buried there until more recently...during the 7 years my husband was gone off to war and else after 2003, and I started researching all kinds of people to keep my mind occupied.

This also reminds me that there is a puzzle about "Rosenthal" who has a marker out in "regular" BootHill; I don't think there was more than one...or was there...or is the marked grave really empty...or is someone else there? Records have Rosenthal as the only other person (I've been able to name so far) in the Jewish Cemetery.

I also researched Max Weiss buried by Wyatt & Josephine Earp and found that he seemed to be one of the film producer brothers and wondered if he had donated the plot.

Well, how ironic to be thinking about them all again this morning!

Dear Ed,
Thank you VERY much for Susan Darkus McCoy-Martin's death date and source. I've credited you on her memorial page. Is there a place online where I can view this source?

Kindest,

REUBEN MARTIN
Thank you for sponsoring Reuben's memorial page!
I have no relative connections so if you would like for me to transfer his memorial to you I would be more than happy to do so - just send an Edit suggestion to let me know. Thanks again!

Martin Family
I have linked the children with memorials to the parents. However, this is not the proper way to do it. Normally, what you will need to do is contact the person that added the memorial for the children, and then give them the parents names and memorial numbers. Usually they will be happy to do this for you.

If there is anything else that I can help with, please let me know.
