The first Joseph in particular is a good bet.

On that question of the cemetery where Mary E. Rogers was interred, that notice does indeed say Mountain View, but the Funeral Notice from the paper of a couple of days later  - which mentions the Funeral Director and appears on the day of the Funeral  - say Evergreen Cemetery.  So I am leaning towards it being Evergreen, but Mountain View is still definitely a possibility.  I'll see what the Evergreen Cemetery authorities come back to me with.  There is no Find a Grave listing for her at either, but I am confident she will have been interred in one or the other.
