William Hilliard Page died 29 October 1905 at Lake Morena in southeastern San Diego County, California, near the community of Campo. His wife, Laura Ann Lovejoy Page died 4 days later at same place. They were Keepers of the Dam at Lake Morena. He has a death certificate with errors, (Laura shown as his mother) and she has no death certificate. They were apparently buried by the county in a small iron fence enclosed burial ground. Sometime prior to 1948, either the bodies were removed and buried elsewhere, or they were plowed under by a developer. No one in the family was notified. Their daughter, grand daughter and great granddaughter were all living in San Diego county at the time, but no one was notified about the disposition of the bodies. I am the great,great granddaughter seeking the past and present burial location, but county government will not answer my queries or cooperate in any way. They ignore my correspondence and phone calls. Does anyone have any additional information or suggestions.
