Maybe if you contact the cemetery office, you could find out who else might be buried there and who the deed-holder is. You could then see if any of the names match up with any of your relatives.
Just a thought.....

Subject: [LAORLEAN] Info on burials in National Cemeteries
Today, on a total fluke, I was looking for informtion on my great uncle's burial in San Antonio. I found him in Fort Sam Houston Cemetery.
So I looked for his wife there too. Then I decided to look at other cemeteries there and, while I didn't find her, I did find my Great grandfather (a Louisiana native and resident for most of his life). I was shocked to just come upon him like that--but then that is genie.
My question is how and where to seek more information to be certain that the Frank P. Wharton in the cemetery is my great grand. I suspect it is as he was called Colonel by everyone who knew him. And used that title at the beginning of his given name as if Colonel were his first name. My grandmother, his dil, always called him Colonel Wharton when she spoke of him.
