RE: George Baker tombstone
I suspect that George purchased the tombstone in 1917 when Sarah passed away and had both their names and dates of birth inscribed at that time. The responsibility for having the headstone updated when he passed would have fallen to whomever took care of the funeral arrangements. Most monument companies won't accommodate a "prepay", so George's heir likely opted not to incur the cost of having the stone etched with his date of death.

RE: Levin Steen grave
Thanks Larry. The memorial for Eliza A Steen, who appears to be Levin's first wife, is on Findagrave now (#11868981) but Levin's tombstone (if any) has no photo. Levin's second wife Sarah Eugenia (Hitchens) Steen is also interred here (#11868990). Both of Levin's wives died before he did. I appreciate your help! Steve Keefe

RE: Cora Belle Bright Uplinger Brekken
Well at least we do know she is in Elko and the Cemetery. More than what we had.

Glad I could help.

RE: Cora Belle Brekken
Evening.


I just heard from Jan in Elko. She doesn't have a plot number for Cora Belle, but she has: Born Jun 23, 1895 in Woodruff, KS. Died Oct 10. 1981 in Elko. Was shipped to Reno Mountain View Cemetery for cremation, and was shipped back to Elko and buried in the Elko City Cemetery.

She (Jan Peterson phone 775 778-5478) was part of the government shutdown today, and has no other information at this time. She might have more come spring. She received all the information for the City Cemetery on paper and is trying to get it into the computer.

Hope this helps. Sorry it took so long.

RE: Cora Belle Brekken
Just talked to the lady who knows about Elko. She will see what she can find and let me know. As soon as I hear from her, I will send you a note. Hopefully won't be too long. She is in Reno today......

RE: John I. Brekken
have done some more digging. Cora was cremated here in Reno, by the Mountain View mortuary, and then sent back to the Burns Funeral Home in Elko. I have a call in now to a lady that keeps the records for the burials in elko. Should know something this afternoon.
