RE: Burke Hickey
Quite welcome. I discovered that the local LDS family history center has a fair number of microfilms that have death certificates recorded on them. I was specifically looking for Calvary ones as there had been a fire there around 1933 that took out paper records on site. I may have to see if there are more years at the downtown Tacoma library for the years the LDS didn't have one of these days.

RE: Hickey Family
As to your question regarding Catholic cemeteries in pre-1900 Tacoma, before Calvary was started up in 1905 there was a smaller cemetery owned by the Rigney family. Hence it was originally called Rigney Cemetery as well as Rigney Catholic Cemetery and Pioneer Catholic Cemetery. It's currently known as Old Pioneer Cemetery and is within the borders of Calvary.

From what I was told when I documented both cemeteries with another local graver there had been a fire that had taken out the records up to that year, which I think was 1933 if my memory serves. The only other pre-1900 cemeteries that I'm aware of off the top of my head would be Old Tacoma and Oakwood Hill. Pauper (aka County) Cemetery may have been pre-1900s too, but not sure on this.

I could check for her name on the Old Tacoma side of things as I found a microfilm of the for its internment records that includes 1895. Otherwise you may have to call Old Tacoma to see if she's there. Oakwood is smaller and from what I was told all the visible markers were photographed and therefore memorialized on Find A Grave. I'm no relation to the Hickey's so if I have any memorials of relations please let me know, I'd be happy to given them to you!

RE: Charles A Caggiano headstone Rosedale Cemetermy
I noted on his record that the stone at Rosedale is a memorial, and that actual interment was at Mountaing View Memorial Park in Lakewood WA. I also added his obituary.

You might want to create a Find A Grave memorial for him at Mountain View Memorial Park. I see there is no record on the webstie for him there.

RE: Charles A Caggiano headstone Rosedale Cemetermy
That's an interesting question. I photographed and transcribed the monument along with many others at Rosedale, but I did not check against cemetery records. The monument was next to that of Margaret Caggiano. Based on the dates, I assume her to be his wife. I suppose it's possible that he could have been moved when she died.
