|Bio and Links|
I am a native Californian. I went to school in Santa Rosa and married Vern Leete also from Santa Rosa. After being away for quite some time we returned to California and found the Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery in a mess. The weeds were thigh high because it had been abandoned. A group of teens from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints began rescuing the cemetery. Later that year the city included it in the "Hands Across the County" program. It took less then a year to give the cemetery the sense of dignity it deserved. Now it has natural beauty with its huge oaks and Vinca. Garbage was hauled away and gravel put on some of the graves. Walkways were cleared. Headstones were straightened and bleached. The pioneers of Santa Rosa are buried here and these young men and women understood the importance of honoring those that had established their fine city. |
In 1986 a young man named Adrian Seeser chose to list all the names in this cemetery for his Eagle Scout award. With his permission those names have now been added to this site in hopes it will help anybody that has family or friends they could not locate before.
It has been an honor to be a part of the reconciliation of this graveyard. It gives me confidence in the youth of our town. My hope is that you as a searcher will find comfort in what you find.

Hello sorry about the duplication I thought I checked before adding but all is done. Thanks for your info
|Sheila||RE: edit tab|
You're welcome. I posted results of it on my page. Hope your week is going well. I've been meaning to ask, do you know if the surveying at Santa Rosa Rural is finished? I'll need to update plot locations for several relatives there.

You are right, just Davidson County. If there ever was a town it was likely absorbed by Nashville many years ago. I think that whole county is part of the City of Nashville now.

Thanks for taking care of this cemetery and documenting the grave of one of my distant cousins.
I appreciate your efforts!

HI - I'm doing a quick survey of about 400 people on my friends list just to see how many are aware of the new "Edits" tab on their home page. If you could just shoot me back a brief response, either way that would be great. Thanks.

Jeanie: It is not all my work - there are numerous other Litz descendents that have helped and supplied information - I try my best to gather and verify all infomation - on average each person represents 1-3 hours of research. If You are a direct descendent, I would be willing to transfer to You - BTW if there are missing people that You can link into this growing tree of people - Please do and advise me.
Warm Regards - Tom Schoening (the scribe)
|Pamela Fowler Sweeney||RE: 29134898 Poulin Family|
The cemetery book specifies Cecile as being in the north half because the plot measures 20ft by 20ft and the monument in the middle divides it in half. The Poulin family is resting in the plot with George and Fannie Hillier. Cecile Poulin is next to George and Fannie in the back and the rest of the Poulins are in the front.
I don't think they are far apart enough to need that specification and I would probably leave it out.
Thank you for all your hard work Jeanie.

Certainly, I have transferred John's memorial to you. I'm actually not relative of his, I came across him while photographing the markers of Civil War vets buried in the GAR section at Mountain View Cemetery.

|Leslie Sexton||Tryphena Davis Case|
Tryphena was my great grandmother. Her mother (Charlotte Yancey Davis)and father (Lemuel Atherton Davis) and her husband (William E Case) are buried here. I cannot find her grave. She died in 1900, before any of the three aforementioned. I have hit a brick wall and don't know where to look now. Any suggestions?
