The Dorseys
Thanks, Kevin, for the reminder. The office staff told me that the markers were actually installed in 2015; I don't remember that it was that long ago but when I looked at the original photos, they were taken 7 years ago!

The location depicted in the 2010 photos was slightly off. Their markers are actually closer to that little tree visible on the right side. Remarkable changes to the area have taken place since then. All the trees along the center divider of Manchester Blvd. were cut down so that the Space Shuttle Endeavor could pass through on it's way to the L.A. Science Center. The trees that were replanted are already at least 10 feet tall. And the Forum was completely refurbished.

If you read the photo captions it will explain where their markers are in relation to each other. The surprise was finding Ella's mother buried with them. I created a memorial for her and transferred it to you.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

Best regards,

B.J.

You are most welcome. If you have ancestry then you can find her Kentucky death certificate there.

Samuel H. Welch
Hi Kevin,

I'm gathering material for a future book on the 33rd Indiana Infantry and saw the pictures you posted of Private Samuel Henry Welch, Co. K, 33rd Indiana Infantry. Would you be willing to try and scan and email me digital images of these photographs? I'd love to have any images or information you have on Private Welch. I'm also working on a website that I will release shortly on the regiment. There were nearly 2,000 soldiers who passed through the ranks of the 33rd between 1861 and 1865 and I have some information on most of them. I had two ancestors in the regiment as well - The Owens brothers, William H. and John Quincy Owens, both of Company I. They survived the war, but were seriously wounded in the Atlanta Campaign. I appreciate your help!

RE: Asking for help, again...
Hi Kevin. Good to 'hear' from you again. Well, first of all, Trona is over 100 miles from here, out in the desert of San Bernardino County. It is a small town, in fact it is unincorporated so I do not know if they have any government offices that you could contact. There is a Searles Valley Cemetery listed here on Find A Grave as being in Trona, however I don't see any contact information for it, which probably means it is so small, it doesn't have an office. The only really good suggestion I would give you, would be for you to order a copy of one of their death certificates. It would list the disposition of remains, which gives you the cemetery and/or mortuary name. You may be able to do it online. There is one good site (secure) and I've used it twice, it is called Vitalchek.com.

Have you tried doing an obituary search? More and more obits are appearing online. Some of those sites are not free, though, and might cost more than what you'd pay Vitalchek for the actual document. Obits don't always give the burial location, but it is worth a try.

Depending on where you live, you might try contact the closest LDS Church that has a Family History Library. The volunteers at those libraries specialize in helping people. It's also worth a short; give it a go and see what they can come up with!

Sorry, but these are the only things I can think of. Just because they lived in Trona, doesn't mean they are buried there. You could spend all day on the phone and internet trying to get the right cemetery and still not find them.

Good luck! I hope you find them.

Best regards,
B.J.

PS - Keep in touch and let me know what you find. I may think of other avenues at another time and if so, I'll get back to you.

Thank you for the photo of Gladys and Felton's Stone. I had not been able to add them to their Ancestry information.
