    1. Re: [TX-BEXAR-CEM] Millicent Clare BARTLETT.
    2. Glynis & Scott Wheeler
    3. Hi Sandra, Thank you for getting back to me so quick. I would love a photo of the grave and a copy of the death cert for Minor. Until Christmas Eve we did not know what had happened to Millicent after 1944. She had been a teacher at an expensive girls school in Sydney, NSW, Aust and then we could not find any trace of her. We knew she had married Minor BARTLETT but could not find any marriage certifiacte for them. A kind soul forwarded to me a list of passengers from Manila to the USA. This ship has War Brides on it, thus we followed the line of thought that she may have been a War Bride. It there a web site over there that we can look up for Minor's war service records? Once again, thank you so much for your help.

We are meeting at 9 am, bring your own clippers and bug spray. A couple of them require saws but not big chainsaws just saw saws. We can put the cuttings in the alley area behind the cemetery for pick-up. Father Gordon is looking forward to our assistance on Saturday. He has only been here a few months, and is working diligently to correct some of the neglect of past years. We decided to postpone the grass seed until he can check on the current water pipes that have been turned off. Clifton Meier (Meier Bros. Monuments - third generation) was reviewing the cemetery this morning, and will give St Marys an estimate of what can be done about the existing monuments that are leaning or on the ground. He really was interesting to talk to, and gave me a lot of insgiht into what can and can't be done, and the importance of foundations for the markers. I'm going to talk to him some more, and take notes, so I can relay that a little more intelligently to you. The cemetery is on South Palmetto, on the south side of Commerce Street. If you are coming from the north on IH 35, take the Commerce Street exit and just head east on Commerce. If you are coming from the south on IH35 take the exit for the Alamo. If you have never been to the Eastside Complex, you are in for a big surprise, it is an outdoor museum of the history of San Antonio.

Sarah From: [email protected] To: [email protected] Sent: Sunday, November 08, 2009 10:06 AM Subject: Re: St. Mary's Cemetery Hi Sarah and Lance, It was a bit surprising. The grass had just been cut but there were several graves that are sinking, larges bushes overtaking headstones and then just the neglect of the headstones their selves. I did locate a few of them. One of them is Beatrice O'Toole. She came from a very distinguished founding family in San Antonio. Her father was one of the founders of the current day San Antonio Fire Department. Her mother was a member of the first group in Castro Colony. On the way to Castroville, they stopped in San Antonio. Her mother fell in love so she married and stayed in San Antonio as her family continued on to Castroville. Most of her brothers were very active in the community and held various position from law enforcement to city/county positions. Her parents and most of her other siblings are buried in City Cemetery #1. I am a huge history and genealogy buff so please let me know if there is anything I can help with. Or if it ever gets to the point we need to do a little labor, we can definitely help there as well. My daughter and I noticed years ago while doing our family research that some headstones were in need of some good cleaning and/or minor repairs. So each year, we will have a "cleaning" day and just pick one of the cemeteries that our family is buried and do a little cleaning of some of the headstones. Over time, they have adopted a few long past children and will place flowers when we go out there. Thank you to each of you for bring this issue to light and the work you done. Again, please let me know if I can help. Lynette

    2. Sarah Reveley
    3. Today I spoke to Lance Spengler, the gentleman who first made us aware of the cemetery. He has already done an extensive amount of research on the residents. I'm going to help him with the Texas Historic Cemetery application. You can contact him at [email protected] . We are meeting at the cemetery at 10 am tomorrow, anybody who wants to take a look is welcome to join us. I'm going to take the required photos for the THC application so we can get rolling. He isn't getting anywhere with the priest so I called the archdiocese and it turns out that St Mary's Church is not under their umbrella. It is a part of the Oblate of Mary Immaculate in Washington DC so I found them at http://www.omiusa.org/MAMI_link.htm . I sent them a letter and copied everybody involved: ----- Original Message ----- From: Sarah Reveley To: [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected] Cc: Gerron Hite THC ; Lance Spengler ; Virginia Nicholas Bexar Co THC ; [email protected] ; [email protected] Sent: Thursday, May 21, 2009 7:49 PM Subject: Neglected St. Mary's Cemetery in San Antonio Texas Hello, you must be unaware of the condition of the St. Mary's Cemetery in San Antonio Texas, so I wanted to tell you about it. The Archdiocese in San Antonio advised me that unfortunately they cannot assist since it is in your organization. Pastor Levy is un-cooperative, and has said it is up to the families, but these graves date back to the Republic of Texas and many families are unknown. I am asking y'all to get involved. The City of San Antonio maintains many of the cemeteries in the district already, for other non-city organizations. They do a wonderful job. Recently two San Antonio television stations publicized the sad neglected condition of the cemetery: http://www.kens5.com/video/news-index.html?nvid=363268&shu=1 http://www.ksat.com/news/19506292/detail.html I have added the cemetery to my own website http://www.picturetrail.com/texas_cemeteries This cemetery is in the Eastside Cemetery Complex which is a part of the National Register, and we are going to get it declared a Texas Historical Cemetery as well, to guarantee future protection within the Texas Historical Commission. I would appreciate it if you could advise me of the position of the Oblate of Mary Immaculate regarding the cemetery as quickly as possible, so I can update my website with some positive news. Sincerely, Sarah Reveley San Antonio

    1. [TX-BEXAR-CEM] St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery Has Toppled Headstones, Damaged Mausoleum
    2. Sarah Reveley
    3. This is a part of the eastside cemetery complex in downtown San Antonio. I saw this on the news tonite, it's pathetic. the church is avoiding the issue. The City of San Antonio has taken over maintenance of most of those cemeteries in the complex, and use jail inmates and people who owe community hours. http://www.ksat.com/news/19506292/detail.html POSTED: Tuesday, May 19, 2009 SAN ANTONIO -- After viewing multiple toppled headstones and a damaged mausoleum, one local man said he's trying to get help for a ravaged cemetery on the city's east side. St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, located along Wyoming Street and South Palmetto Avenue, shows signs of vandalism and damage that resident Lance Spengler said he finds unacceptable. "If somebody doesn't do nothing about it, then this historical area is going to go somewhere down the line where our family, and other people's families, are not going to be able to see it," he said. Spengler said several of his family members are buried at the cemetery owned by St. Mary's Catholic Church. Spengler said the church's pastor, who did not wish to comment to KSAT 12 News, told him the church only had enough funds to keep the grass trimmed. "I've been told it's the family's responsibility to take care of their own plots," said Spengler. "Well, some of these families don't exist no more." Spengler said he's been researching state funding programs and has offered to clean the cemetery himself, but the church pastor has not responded to his offer.

    1. [TX-BEXAR-CEM] Dogs in SA Eastside cemetery complex
    2. Sarah Reveley
    3. Yesterday I went by City Cemetery #3 in the SA Eastside complex, got halfway thru and saw two very large dogs, resting on graves! They just looked at me, so I made my way back towards my car. Then the neighborhood dogs behind fences started barking at me, and one of the big dogs started toward me, but I made it back to my car. This is the second time I have come across dogs in the complex, the first time was in the overgrown Confederate Cemetery, and I figured they were there because of the tall grass, but City Cemetery #3 was cut and very open. There are residential neighborhoods on two sides of the complex, and both times the dogs were in cemeteries across the street from houses, so I don't know if they were strays or not. I would encourage anyone going there to drive around first, look for any dogs, before you get out.
