Looking for Burial record info headstone etc for St Clara, California
« on: Monday 08 January 18 00:36 GMT (UK) »
Late last year after a 20 year search i found a death record of my 2 x Great grand mother

Martha Maria Ward died 16 Aug 1874 at  Almaden, Santa Clara, Santa Clara, California
source gleamed from Ancestry.com

it looks as though her daughter of the same name died as well at the same time.

I would like to find out what cemetery she is buried at, if there is a headstone etc or perhaps a death notice. Her husband is James Ward, apparently he left soon after with his daughter Beatrice and son William and left for New Zealand. James was a Miner
Thank you
Murray
