My great grandmother and her newly born son were buried on the grounds of the Bolivar Lighthouse not far from the main house.
I would like to find out if there is a record somewhere of her death and burial. I do not know if there is a headstone there any more or any sign of a grave.
Her name was:
Nora Ellen Ellis Gardner
born 7 Jan 1886 died 5 Dec 1918 (flu epidemic)
Baby Boy Gardner
born 5 Dec 1918 died 5 Dec 1918
Both are buried together on the grounds of the Bolivar Lighthouse. My family has always called the cemetery there Gardner or Bolivar Lighthouse cemetery.
My grandfather was 6 years old and remembered every detail of that day. He and his 3 year old sister were sent on the train that day to live with his Ellis grandparents until his father remarried over a year later and came for them.
If anyone can help me find any information about this grave, I would really appreciate it. I would like to be able to contact the private owners of the lighthouse and ask if they have any knowledge of this grave.
