Pete Burke Story
I am researching this person for my web site. I originally thought he should be listed as a line of duty death for SD Sheriff, even thought he was a deputy Constable at the time... I also did not find him on the officer down memorial web site. After reading your story on him I am even more intrigued. I own sandiegobadge.com and was writing a another story which ended up in Imperial County when I found the LA Herold articles about Burke. Based on your characterization maybe I should leave well enough alone.... but now I am curious. Cam you direct me to your sources on his history?

Thanks.... Ken

Thank you for your correction on the year of birth.. I did see that when I originally looked him up but decided to go with what was on the stone. Now there are both dates. Family can decide.
I worked for years making out death certificates at the hospital and know that at that time families are under stress and makes lots of mistakes or don't even agree on the date. The information is given by one not the person who is in question and always has to be taken with a grain of salt. That is why death certificates or even birth are not a primary proof.

Refugio (Ruth) Alvarez
I posted a picture of a Refugio Alvarez wife of Juan C. Alvarez, whom I think is the person for whom you made this memorial # 132347340. The dates
are slightly different. I found Oct 26, 1989 and death Jan 1976.
If this is not the same person as the picture I posted let me know and I will remove the picture.
You might want to link her to Juan C. ALVAREZ # 15894814 if that is her husband.

I posted a picture of a Mercedes Valenzuela but the dates I found in the SS death index are slightly different from the ones you posted.
I got Sep 24, 1936 and Aug 1973.
If this is not the same Mercedes V. I will take the pictures off.
The grave was right next to a Henry V Valenzuela 1942-1984.

Gregorio Alfredo Saenz
He is my Uncle and my Grandmother's Sibling. I have his Death Certificate and he is the 5th child. For whatever reason, I do not see my Grandmother Mary Socorro Saenz 1910-2002. When I think that no one has entered them in Find A Grave, I come up that someone has done so. I cannot edit it because it shows you as the Generator. So if you would, please add my Grandmother which is the 3rd child of Celedonio Acedo Saenz & Tomasa Ida Lopez.

Weeden/Weedin Duplicates
Thank you so much for notifying me about the duplicates I made due to the name spelling variation. I sent edits for the original memorials to change the names. I also deleted my links and sent edits to link to the original entries. Also I will ask the person who added photos to my memorials to move them to the original, so I can just delete my entries.

I see you sent edits to link my entry for William Weeden to his parents. Could you please add those links to the original William Weedin entries instead? Thanks again and I apologize for all the hassle!

Thank you very much for contacting me with suggested edits. I have made the edits except for the link to "unknown burial" father, Troy Barnes, Sr. Once his grave is found, I will be happy to make that Find A Grave link.

In addition to linking to mother, I have added links to grandparents in the bio section.

Best wishes,

RE: Potholes Cemetery
Hello,

Thank you. I will delete the Chale entry. I suspected it was a duplicate when I realized the name on the cross was Chale but the "after reburial" list (as I call it. See explanation below) listed that plot for Charles. But I could not tell for sure if there was a fourth burial (for Chale) inside the fence. Think there are only three there, right? Charles/Chale, Rosita and a Soloman infant.

I hope to walk Potholes Cemetery after it gets a little cooler. Want to document the newer graves, fill the 3 Find A Grave photo requests and discover the owners of Unknown 02-04 tombstones. The heat (112 degrees) makes to too dangerous right now.

The documents that I am using in my research include the one you have (which contains a map of the Old cemetery site) plus a second one from the Genealogical Society of Yuma. This second, subsequent document, done by the Dept of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, illustrates the reburial locations in the current Potholes Cemetery. This subsequent document contains a map and a list as well. It is dated 5-9-36, which, of course, is after the relocation was completed. To refresh your memory, the relocation was done to avoid flooding by the Imperial Dam construction. The map of the current Potholes Cemetery location is divided into Blocks, Lots and Graves. Each Block is 20ft by 10ft and contains four graves. The document also contains a list which cross references the Old Site numbers (1-151,160-165, 170 and 171) to the current grave locations of the re-interred.

Thank you for telling me who takes care the Cemetery now. Hope that I can contact them at some point.

Regards,

Potholes Cemetery - Chale Saloman #106 - Reclamation List.
Hi rla,

Have been doing some research on Potholes Cemetery. My source is the 1936 Reclamation List.

Could #106 on the Reclamation List (Chale Saloman) possibly be the same person as Carlos Salomon? The dates seem to match. Also, he seems to have had several nicknames. I did enter "Chale" as a separate person but am now thinking the entry is a duplicate. Do you have info that might resolve this?

Thank you.

Regards,

Concerning Potholes Cemetery at Bard
Hi rlahistory,

My name is Sharon (Shairi) Kilpatrick - Find A Grave Member Sharon K. #47553707. Am researching Potholes Cemetery at Bard as a result of photo requests on Find A Grave.

It seems that you are related to some of the people buried there and could possibly help me solve the mystery of who is currently buried there and in which plot. Am hoping to find a current cemetery/grave map.

Here are the clues I have so far:

First, the only map in the Arizona Room at the Yuma Library is dated 1936 (I have a copy)and has 154 interments. It is the map of burial locations known as the "Old Mission Site Cemetery" which was there BEFORE the graves were moved due to the Imperial Dam construction. Although helpful, this map is not current enough.

Secondly, the Imperial Dam construction began in 1936 according to Wikipedia. The graves were moved to the current location "up the hill" as one interviewee stated on July 15, 2015. In the same interview, the man stated that some of his relatives have been buried at the Potholes Cemetery location SINCE the Old Mission graves were moved. So, we know that there are more there than the original 154.

Third, since this site is actually in California, there is nothing on Arizona Graves website. Imperial County is not covered on California Gravestones site.

Do you have an up-to-date map, a list of people buried there since the move or know of where I can do more research. Would love to speak to you personally. All clues are appreciated as I would love to fill the Potholes Cemetery photo requests on Find A Grave.

Best Regards,
Sharon K. Member #47553707

Thanks, I will add what I can from the death certificate, but I'm not good at Spanish last names and these are hard to read anyway. If you can translate for me, please do.
