Gila County: Bacon Family Cemetery
Hi George,

I hope this email finds you well and still enjoying digging up Arizona history.

Today I was adding information for a family member recently interred at the Bacon Family Cemetery and realized we would like to document history of the Cemetery. the Cemetery is on forest service land and is documented with them, however, the ownership of the ranch is a history I would like to document.

With your knowledge of the county and county history, hopefully there's a chance you might remember/know who the current owners of the Tin and now(???) ranch, might be? If not, I am hoping you might have a little time and could direct me on where to look and maybe who to talk too to find the ranch history and possibly any documentation.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Lillian (Stone) Salstrom
Granddaughter of John "Hoolie" Bacon

Carrie Martin # 18911176
Hello, Carrie Martin Find A Grave # 18911176 was my Aunt. She married my Uncle Lum Martin, her last husband. I have her information and the Lum Martin Find A Grave Memorial. My Grandfather was George Martin who with his father traveled from Missouri and claimed the Bar X ranch in Tonto basin for their own. Lum was Georges brother. My Mother Ruby Martin was born on the Bar X. I see someone asked you about the Tonto Basin Cemetery? Years ago the area Post Office was named Cline AZ not Pumkin Center. So the Cemetery which was on the Bar X was named the Cline AZ Cemetery by my Grandfather George Martin. It is still on private ground and owned my the Dale Cline family members. My Great Grandfather Martin was the first to be buried there. I think there is a Tonto basin Cemetery also? I am doing all of the family Genealogy and would love to place Carrie with her other family members, if you would consider a transfer? Thank You, Find A Grave Contributor # 48130138 Jerri Sellers Paynter

George, can you look at Google Maps and give us a GPS location for this grave? Gila Co. has fewer than 40% of the cemeteries located in the system and I have been working it this weekend to better those numbers. Thank you! -Rebecca

Hi George,

Would you happen to have an exact location for the Tonto Basin Cemetery?

If so please give me a GPS of it.

Correction to the obituary I sent yesterday. The copy was so bad, I've asked Linda Haught Ortega to look over what I thought it said. The correction is the daughter's name is "Hannah". So instead of Mrs. Harold Lee Howe, it should be Mrs. Hannah Lee Howe.

Hello and good day. I was wondering if you could transfer Lucille Smyers (19013086) to me. She is my Aunt and I would like to post pictures and pen a bio about her. She was a wonderful person, thank you! :-)
