|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.

|Michael Sawyer||bert bertino info|
The only information on his bio I can take credit for is the fact that he worked for Luther Burbank. Please change the bio to reflect that. Thank you.

I know there is a patch on Jack London's ranch, and I know they were friends.

Just noticed your nice memorial for Bert Bertino, and your death year incorrectly states 1945. Just thought you'd want to know so you could correct that. Also, you might want to add in the bio that he worked as a gardener for Luther Burbank. You can check with Luther Burbank Home and Gardens to confirm this.

Thank you for the civil war information. We live in Santa Cruz. My husband's great grandmother Myrtle May Martz Thomas was also buried at Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery (46905912)in 1902. I believe she may be near Frank M Jackson. I have no connection to him other than that. I felt compelled to create a memorial for him because of his nearness to her. When we found where she was buried and made a call to confirm, we were told that she was on the list but had no marker. My husband built a cross and we attached an antique brass urn to it for flowers. When we took the cross to the cemetery, we found that there was in fact a large flat marker there for her. We added our cross. We have been back a few times and love the cemetery and Santa Rosa, as well.

|Mark Gove||RE: Albert B. Cummings|
It just occurrd to me by your last name Leete, that your husband might be a direct descendant of Pelatiah Leete, w/ the Cummings connection. If so, my site below has photos of Albert and his wife, his parents, her parents, news clippings, poetry written etc. Please let me know if this is a direct family connection.
