Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have any burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the Mountain View Memorial Gardens. For information of that nature, we suggest that the Find-A-Grave website is a good place to start your search: The Mountain View Memorial Gardens (FAG ID #2130381)

We have organized this page based upon a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site.

This page contains six sections:

Footnotes ...

<1>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been unable to verify its accuracy, but are confident that we have placed the marker within a few hundred feet of the actual location. Typical reasons for being unable to verify a location is that it might be either overgrown or on private property. A physical visit will probably be needed to verify the location.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance from . A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point at the Mountain View Memorial Gardens. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.0409, Longitude: -113.8922     [Map].
