Burial places for Cleve and Anita RAYMOND Progenitors

All of Cleve and Anita RAYMOND's progenitors for three generations and many from the next generation are interred in three cemeteries in Utah: Richmond, Lewiston, and Smithfield. For each of these cemeteries, progenitors are listed alphabetically by last name. Each list has the ancestor's ahnentafel number and location code for the adjacent map. Burial places are given for progenitors up through CARP generation six (Cleve and Anita's gg-grandparents)

Ahnentafel numbers are given, relative to Cleve and Anita RAYMOND's children. Thus, Cleve RAYMOND is number 2 and Anita WISER RAYMOND is number 3. Ahnentafel numbers are the numbers on a large pedigree chart. Each individual's father has an ahnentafel number twice the individual's number. Each individual's mother has an ahnentafel number one greater than the father's number.

Cleve and Anita RAYMOND did the original research work and drew the original maps used in this article.

* Austin HAMMER is memorialized at this spot, but was one of those hurriedly buried in a well near Haun's Mill, Missouri after being killed by a mob.

According to Elizabeth WOOL's history, she was buried in her son's lot in the Smithfield cemetery. However, Smithfield City has no record of Elizabeth WOOL HILLYARD MEEKS' burial and there is no tombstone. Perhaps she is buried near Elizabeth HILLYARD(17) at 5D in Thomas HILLYARD, Jr.'s lot.

Salt Lake City Cemetery map

Rebecca PEARCE RAYMOND CHASE WILLIAMS was one of the earliest pioneers buried in the cemetery. She is listed as number 132 in the Salt Lake City cemetery Book of the Dead (FHL film 215578 p. 5.). Cemetery records indicate she was interred in plat C, block 5, lot 4, but don't indicate which plot. (There are two rows of five plots in each lot.) According to Mike Ellerbeck, if Rebecca were the first person buried in the lot, she would probably be buried in the southwest corner of the plot. Mike has worked in the cemetery for many years, now operating the adjacent monument business. Mike says her 1851 burial was probably marked with a wooden marker.

Half a century went by and the plots in lot C-5-4 were reused. According to Mike, after just 20 years, nothing would have been left. The wooden marker would have completely decomposed. A coffin would have utterly disappeared, although it is unlikely she was buried in one. Even Rebecca's bones would have returned to the earth. For the better part of 150 years no monument recognized Rebecca's sojourn on this earth. In 2002, Cleve Raymond rediscovered her forgotten burial plot and organized an effort to place a marker there. Now, a monument stands again honoring our Great Grandmother Rebecca RAYMOND.

* Pearis RAYMOND is also memorialized at this spot, since he is almost certainly buried in an unmarked grave. Family records indicate he was buried at "Mesquite River near Omaha, Nebraska." Modern readers should not assume this refers to the "mesquite" tree of the American southwest. Throughout the 19th century, those who could write generally spelled phonetically. "Mesquite" may have meant "ma-squita." Pearis' family is known to have resided in the Springville Branch, along the Mosquito and Little Mosquito creeks south of Kanesville. Immediately opposite Omaha across the Missouri River, Mosquito Creek emerges from the Iowa bluffs. It is here that the Mormon Battalion was mustered. It is here that Pearis is known to have collected Alonzo's first Mormon Battalion pay. It is here he was likely buried. For more information, see " Council Bluffs, 1846."
