Frances,

Attached are three photos of the grave of Maurice D. Wright. The first two are close-ups from different angles. The third shows the grave in the left foreground. Aragon Road is beyond the fence on the left. The older part of the cemetery is in the upper portion of the photo.

The text on the tombstone reads:
Maurice D Wright
New Mexico
CPL US Marine Corps
World War II Korea
Dec 2 1927 Feb 1 1973

The grave is in the southwestern part of the newer part of the cemetery.
The office has a file of all burials in the newer part of the cemetery, which opened in 1967. No index for the older part. The contact info for the cemetery is:
Terrance Grove Cemetery & Crematory
1200 Aragon Road
P.O. Box 761
Belen, NM 87002
505-864-0823; 505-450-8331; 505-450-8332
The cemetery is run by Dennis & Connie Strain. Mr. Strain was very helpful. You can always call them for other burials (indexed from 1967 forward).

I also took photos of two other Wright's in the older section:
Elmer C. Wright
1899 - 1973
and
Golden Wright
1908 - 1959

Let me know if you want me to send you photos of those graves.

Jim
