Long interested in cemeteries & ghost stories, this sight I really love! I love the fact that I can have "forever" obituaries for my loved ones and friends and that I can also assist those who are interested in tracing their family trees! I have a particular interest in Native American genealogy and cemeteries.|

IF YOUR EDIT INFORMATION DIFFERS FROM WHAT I HAVE ON RECORD OR THE HEADSTONE (I USE DEATH CERT RECORDS AS THE PRIORITY FOR DATES) PLEASE SEND ME PROOF OF THE SOURCE MATERIAL OR IT WILL NOT BE CHANGED.

|Melinda Cash||RE: Quincy|
Maybe down the road someday. Right now I still have tons of records to add and research. Not to mention the hundreds and hundreds of graves left to take and post the pictures of. I haven't reached the point yet where I feel comfortable that I have done everything I can do, as far as documenting goes. I'm just happy Quincy has something because thousands have nothing at all.
|Melinda Cash||RE: Quincy|
I'm not sure how to go about getting the military headstone. I can see the same records on Ancestry that you are. I'm really not sure to do at the moment. We had a devil of a time getting military stuff approved for my Father-in-law. I would hate to go through all that again.
|Melinda Cash||RE: Work on Lone Mountain|
I always wondered where the county cemetery was. I somewhat thought it was in the sandy area next to baby land, near the Chinese section. There used to be temp markers there at one time till someone decided to grade that area to get up the weeks and pulled out all the markers. I think some of the temp markets are still there, just buried and it's a matter of getting out there with a metal detector. Unless I know where someone is buried it's next to impossible for me to place a marker. By the way, everything I do is pretty much built on what people like you did before me. I still have hundreds of pictures to take, but it's been a long hot summer and I just can't get out there in the heat, but someday I will get it done. I'm working off the records of birth, deaths, and burials right now. I'm almost done with 1914, then I have 1913 and I'm not sure what I will find after that. But I have all 1914 though 1929 done. I will probably have to jump ahead to the 30's and beyond. I also have another researcher reading all of the Carson City Daily Appeal early additions and sending me the obits for everyone buried in Lone Mountain. As you know it's a group effort to get Lone Mountain completely done. And I'm constantly trying to correct all of Herbs entries. Pretty much all of them have errors and need correcting. And since I work of the county records, death certificates, and obits I know my work is as accurate as possible. Anyway, I always look forward to seeing what you contribute and I know you still continue to do so, and I appreciate all you do. Thanks
|Melinda Cash||Thomas Gordon|
I believe there are two Thomas Gordon's at Lone Mountain Cemetery. You have the death certificate attached to the younger Thomas Gordon, who I believe may have been the son. The death certificate should be attached to the Thomas Gordon who died in 1917. I just added the Thomas Gordon who died in 1917 from the death records. Thanks, Melinda
|Eleanor Morris||Henderson Memorial # 179578166|
This memorial mentions that she married James H. Henderson. I found his death certificate and it indicates that he was to be buried Mar 2, 1936 in Oak Springs Cemetery. Would she have been buried beside her husband seeing as he died first?
|Eleanor Morris||Mem # 114470456|
Did you know that there is another memorial for this individual. I think it was posted later by possibly his daughter, with more details. I also contacted the other contributor.
|Melinda Cash||Work on Lone Mountain|
Hi, I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done on Lone Mountain. I just recently finished adding all the cards the cemetery office had on file. Now I am going back and working off of the public health records as there are many deaths that they don't have cards for. I'm working in the 1920's right now. Also, through my fund raising I just placed an order for the first 16 headstones for people who have nothing. I always appreciate the hard work you have done as you came years a head of me. Take care, Melinda
|Diane Graham||John McMillan|
Do you have any information as to who John McMillan's parents were. I am working on Ancestry and have found a John McMillan and want to make sure he is the correct person. I certainly hope that he is. Thank you for any information you can give me.
|Patsy LaPointe||Holy Cross Episcopal Cemetery, Pine Ridge, SD|
Would you let me know where you got a listing of people buried at this cemetery. We have tried to get one from the Episcopal Church, but have been unsuccessful. Thank you for any information you can give me.
|Connell O'Donovan||Memorial #16154232|
I just posted the 1856 death record for Sarah Magers Bonar. She did indeed that year, not 1836, as you posit in your comments. Connell
