Widow of Harry Startin

A Volunteer searched the Microfilm record & verified the Plot#...
Also left me the following Msg:
>>" I looked at a microfilm at the Family History Library that has information taken several years ago from the Mount Olivet cemetery.
-In one part, somebody copied down a cemetery record listing interments by year. Nevada Startin's name appears in the entries for 1932, and this record confirms that her burial plot was A_20#4.

In another part of the microfilmed document, somebody documented all of the headstones by section. (This occurred at some point after 1941 and before 1956.) I've used this resource to identify most of the now-illegible headstones in the A section of the cemetery. Nevada Startin's name doesn't appear anywhere in this list of inscriptions.

So, I think there may not have ever been a grave marker for her. The section of the cemetery where I believe plot A_20 is located doesn't seem to have any grave markers of any kind in it. It's just a large grassy area."

>> In addition, by further Research I also found:

Also her interment date was during the Great Depression time period.
Nevada's 2nd husband, Harry, had died in Provo in 1928 & their son, Kenneth, was only 22.
On their 1909 Marriage record she is listed as Mrs. C. Lightfoot...
but no Maiden name is listed...
Also on the 1900 Fed Census in Ogden, as the spouse of Charles Lightfoot b-1851 of England, she is listed as Irena N. Lightfoot...

But I have been unable to locate a Gravesite for him or any other records other than the 1900 Census record...
Perhaps there is a Utah Death Certificate that lists her Parents or her Maiden name...
