Surveyed ByJudy Shaw and Sue Shaw
CommentsClose proximity to creek so best to visit in winter due to poison oak and snakes. City conducts clean-up only if there is a visit scheduled. Several toppled headstones and deep grave sinks. Over 15 grave-sized iron fences and/or remnants of fences with no headstones visible. Request made to city staff to remove tree that is growing directly in front of Isaac Davila’s headstone. There were 24 headstones (in a earlier survey there were 43). Random check of death certificates for those missing markers show they were interred at Waters.
