I am in the process of doing a cemetery book about all the cemeteries of Northern Catron County. I am doing a short obit about each one buried in these cemeteries. IF you have an ancestor or family member buried in any of these cemeteries, I would be interested in talking with you, IF I have not already contacted you. Cemeteries: Pie Town, Quemado, Datil, Greer, Adams Diggins, Tres Lagunas, Divide, Greensgap, Horse Springs, Mangus. Thank You, KathyR.

I don't have any obituaries to offer, but I am wondering if you come accross an obituary with the name Edward H. Clark or Shird D. Rader I would appreciate any info you might have. Both of them are my Great-Grandfather's and they lived in the area's you mentioned but I cannot find anything on them.

Thank You
Jackie

Kathy---Have you completed the Pie Town Cemetery? My husband has family there. They are the Steele family (Horatio Thomas Steele aka H. T. aka Tom; his wife, Myrtle Irene Schlotterbeck Steele; at least one of their children: Robert Cowee Steele and maybe Rex Steele. There is also at least one Weathers (Tom); perhaps his daughter, Fern. Have you spoken to Billie Weathers (Tom's wife?) about those buried there? She lives in Pie Town. I have a limited amount of info on the Steeles if you need some dates and names. If you have completed this cemetery, I'd like the birth and death dates given for those above. If there are any Steeles or buried there of which I am not aware, I'd like that info also. I think it is a generous thing you are doing. I know it is hard enough to get through all those cemeteries you are doing without adding a small obit for each. What a nice gesture. Please reply to my message when you can. I am doing family research and it will help add to my compiling. Again, if I can, I will help you with the above people. Thanks Sue

Shirley--sorry I can't help you. They are not buried in the Reserve community cemetery. I don't know if there is a catholic cemetery or not--I have not found it. Perhaps at the Catholic Church there are records if they were Catholic.
I'm still working on some other cemeteries, haven't gotten to the Reserve cemeteries yet. IF you find them, maybe you can help me with the obits. Kathy

The book “From the Top of the Mountain: Pie Town, New Mexico and Neighbors!” by Kathryn McKee Roberts, 1990, has a list of the cemeteries, occupants and dates on headstones. I believe this book is available from the Daily Pie in Pie Town, www.dailypie.com.

Lorie, Thanks for your message. I have been in contact with Kathryn and have not only purchased her book, but also she has sent me information on those that are buried in the cemetery. It seems that some of her family, I believe, had lived in my area of New Mexico at one time also.

I know she was trying to compile information to put on line, but I guess she hasn't finished it yet.

I don't guess you would know anything about Magdalena, NM cemetery in Lincoln Co, would you? I haven't yet seen anything posted online on the cemetery there. I have a grandmother and two uncles buried there, all of whom died at an early time in their lives in 1918.

Thanks again for replying to my message. Sue

Kathryn is a good-hearted person, isn't she? Yes, her farmily wsa one of the homesteaders there.

I'm sorry, your message is a little confusing. Magdalena Cemetery in Lincoln County? Or Magdalena Cementery in Soccoro County? My mother-in-law lives south of Datil, south of Greens Gap Road (if you know the area). We visit her several times each year and I go wandering around the area while we're there. Magdalena is on the way (the one in Socorro County) and I can look something up for you there.

I haven't been to Lincoln County for about 10 years and would need further information as to where Magdalena is in that county. But, I'm always up for exploring, so if you let me know, maybe I'll be able to get out that way when it is warmer weather.

Lorie, I'm sorry I confused you. Yes, I meant in Soccoro Co. I don't know why I put Lincoln. Too late at night (or too early morning!) posting.

I just have not noticed any on-line (as US GenWeb) for the cemetery at Magdalena. I was wondering if there was someone or some service that keeps records on the cemetery.

As I stated my grandmother and two uncles died there in 1918 at early ages from the epidemic at that time. My dad, about 60 or 70 years later put up stones there for them. He took pictures of the stones, so I have some pictures of them. I don't think he and someone he visited with there knew just exactly which grave was which although it was knowledgeable that those were the correct graves.

I had planned on teaching at Datal in 1990, but things didn't work out since my home was so far away and I would have to drive several hundred miles to get home (I live up near Clayton, NM in Union Co). My husband also has family living in and around Pie Town as well as a number of relatives buried there (Weathers and Steele families). I was planning on going there this year for their Pie Town festival, but the date had passed before I thought about it.

My father's mother was Eliza (Leavitt) Thomas. The two young men were Earl and Perry Thomas. Eliza was married to Fred Perry Thomas. My dad, the youngest of 6 children was F. (only) P. (only) Thomas aka "Buster". He was 3 years old when they died.

If you happen to know if there are any records available there, it would be nice to have copies of them. If you are that way sometime and would like to check that would be great. I would be very glad to have a copy of anything there might be available (who knows if there was much back then). I would be happy to pay you for any expenses.

When I said Kathryn had (I think) family that lived around here, I meant in my hometown area. And yes, she is very nice. I'm so glad I met here when she went on line searching for information about the people buried at the cemetery at Pie Town.

Thanks, Sue Ricketson
