Tombstone Tuesday Sad Cemetery

I am working on adding this and other tombstones to Find A Grave.
I was appalled at the condition of St Mary's Cemetery in San Antonio.  We will be looking at the Texas Historical Commission's Recovering a Forgotten Cemetery, to get organized for helping this little cemetery in the middle of San Antonio. TX.
This Person is not in any family trees I have found so far. I had to clear in front of this, and still missed the 1934 death date for Michael J Coyne.


  1. That is very sad, so much history.

    We were at a very old cemetery on the weekend. In the oldest section were three gravestones, no dates, no names, just Mother, Father, Baby.

    It really makes me wonder what happened.


  2. I have Coynes in my family, but no known connection to Michael or any others in Texas (anything's possible, though).

    Kudos to you for taking this poor cemetery to the Historical Commission.
