Allen Anderson Sunnylane
Hi there. Well I'm out here walking Sect. 2
Row BB & I can't find him. I've found marker 40 but there's a big empty space before the stones start again. Now I'm not saying he's not here. Reason being I have had to dig up plenty of stones out here. So if there's a way you could
Call and maybe get a few names he should be next to that
would help so much. I live in mwc but I work bout 25 min frm here so they r gone by the time I get here. Well let
Me know.

Allen Anderson. Sunnylane Cemetery
I've been looking for him for you. I noticed you put space 48 Row BB. You wouldn't by chance have a section number for him? Sunnylane for example
Sect. Block. Row Pos.
6 1 3 28

is the way you can find them the easiest. Ive never seen a row bb before. If you have a section number that would make it easier and faster for me to help you if not I just keep looking for you.

Dr Wright post script
I found a list on line of the names of the people buried in the "San Luis Rey Pioneer Cemetery". that is the one for non-catholics across the street from the old Mission. Dr. Wright is not listed.

Dr. Samuel Wright
I received your "findagrave" request to find a grave for Dr. Samuel Esby Wright. I became intrigued trying to figure out where the cemetery might be where Dr. Wright is buried. There is no Monserate California, nor is there a cemetery named that as far as I have found. There also is no San Luis Rey, California. Dr. Wright died in 1885 so that eliminated all cemeteries that haven't been around that long. What I have found is this:
The city of Oceanside, CA where I live is called "San Luis Rey" in several places. Those include the branch Post Office near our home where we happen to have a PO Box. Our address is in Oceanside but our PO Box address is "San Luis Rey"! the only actual San Luis Rey that I can find on a map is the San Luis Rey river that flows (actually it only has water in the rainiest part of the year due to the many dams on it) or rather the river bed cuts through the center of town from East to West. The river bed is also followed by State Highway 76 that goes form Interstate 5 to Interstate 15.
I found a description of "Rancho Monserate" on Wikipedia. The Rancho of that name was a land grant to the Alvarado Family that took up the area of land from the town of Fallbrook, south, to where Hwy 76 is now following the river bed. Wikipedia also says there is a "San Luis Rey, CA" that is an unincorporated town in the same area. We are not talking about a huge area. It's only about 15 miles between Fallbrook and the current town of Bonsall on Hwy 76. I cannot find any map that lists "San Luis Rey" as a town.
To the West the Rancho Monserate did not go clear to the ocean (about 30 miles) because there was another land grant on the coast. And currently a large chunk of the land between Fallbrook and the Pacific Ocean is the Marine Base, Camp Pendelton!
So I am limited mostly by time but also by the number of cemeteries I can find that may have been described as Monserate or San Luis Rey. There are three cemeteries in Fallbrook. I do not know how old they are. Here in Oceanside there are five cemeteries; two of them are not old enough.
I went to the old Spanish Mission "Mission San Luis Rey de Francia" where they have an old and active cemetery. Dr. Wright was not on their list.
Across the street from the mission is an old, mostly abandoned cemetery that was for "non-Catholic's" who died at the mission but not being Catholic were not allowed to be buried there. I do not know who to contact to find out who is buried there.
Also there is a cemetery close to the coast called "Pioneer Cemetery", again I do not know who to contact there. If I get the time I may try walking about in those cemeteries. They are small and there is no building associated with them. I assume they belong to the city.
I did go to a cemetery called "All Saints" that is right behind the old San Luis Rey Mission but the caretaker there looked up the info for me and said that no one was buried there before 1893.
I'm sorry I have not found your ancestor. It was intriguing finding out what things are and have been called in our area. Try typing "Bonsall, CA" into Google maps to see the area where the Dr's grave may be. You will notice how much of it is "Camp Pendleton". I have no idea if there are old cemeteries on The Base. Oceanside is just south of the Base.
Happy hunting. Sharon Reeves
