Hi, Elizabeth -

First, thank you for all the work you are doing to document the records for the Fortuna cemeteries.

I would like to take over the management of my father's record (75713683), if possible. I'm rather new to so if there's any other information you need, please let me know.

Baxter's in Humboldt County
Hello Elizabeth,

I am interested in knowing what cemeteries my Baxter's are buried in, starting with James and Hannah Baxter. I visited it years ago, but I went to three different cemeteries that day and I am not from the area. I have pictures of the crypts and the family plots. James died 22 Mar 1881 in Willow Creek and Hannah after 1870, date unknown, but I do have a picture of her grave. Can you tell me what cemetery they are buried in, then I will be able to know where the others are at. Names I am also looking for are: Jerome d. 1888 and Sarah Baxter d. 1885

Thank you
Thanking you just does not seem to be enough.

You have been a great help in finding my family. The Betts and Baxter's. I was there several years back, but have a few of the cemeteries mixed up on who is where. I think you are gonna be my next best friend :)
