|Richard Mayo||RE: Okie-san|
no i do not but there is also a huge memorial for her in Japan
|Richard Mayo||Okei "Okei-san" Ito|
Why didnt you list this person was famous.Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony was a group of 22 samurai and their families led by Prussian John Henry Schnell during the Boshin Civil War (1868–69) in Japan preceding the Meiji Restoration. The group purchased land from Charles Graner family in the Gold Hill region after coming to San Francisco in 1869. Though the group was able to successfully show their produce during the 1869 California State Agricultural Fair in Sacramento and the 1870 Horticultural Fair in San Francisco, the farm as a Japanese colony only existed between 1869 and 1871.
Okei Ito, the first known Japanese woman to be buried on American soil, has her grave on the land. The Veerkamp family purchased the farm following the withdrawal of financial support from financier Matsudaira Katamori (1835–93).

You are very welcome. I did photograph the entire cemetery this time, so I think the remainder is unmarked. I posted a few in Oak Grove Cemetery also. You may be interested.

Hi, I always try to take my photos with pride. These are the worst I've ever posted. I was going to 4 cemeteries in the area, the closest being 55 miles from home. As soon as I got there, it started raining.
I didn't get them all, and I got a couple that do not have a memorial. I will get them posted and try to go back soon.
