Hey folks, USFS granted Mattie a head stone or memorial marker and have fixed up the Historic Pinal Cemetery really nice. They are trying to preserve the cemetery. Please tip your hats to USFS. You guys gotta see it!

The USFS have fixed up the Pinal County Cemetery real nice and Mattie has been granted a memorial headstone. The place is fixed up real nice. Should visit the yard again.

I was at the Pinal Historic Cemetery in May, 2013 and it is now surrounded by a fence. There is a small marker for Mattie when you walk in thru the opening, but I do not believe that this is where she really is. They put the marker under two good sized mesquite trees. You can see what they have done to this cemtery and Matties grave by going to my YOU TUBE channel... http://www.youtube.com/user/HondaGoldwingGL18... and go to the playlist titled Arizona, 2013. I did not see where anyone had disturbed a grave but I did move some rocks back that were out of place...most likely from animals because this cemetery is out in the boonies.

Something neds to be done soon before we actually loose the Location of the burial site ovr time...
More Govt regulations, and their swift responses hard at work. The NFS is a roadblock wherever we go.... Maybe local or interested citizens, people, should get involved. This is Amercan History we are loosing...

Was out at the Pinal Cemetery last week and discovered that someone had decided to mark the graves with a generous coating of light green latex house paint! Just brushed it directly on the rocks, along with a few crosses painted on individual rocks as well. There have been problems in the recent past with grave dousers at the cemetery who like to mark both real and imagined graves and this appears to be a new episode of that activity. Individual rocks are painted that mark no grave. The casual, respectful visitor wouldn't desecrate the cemetery while those with ulterior motives who feel that the graves should be marked in some manner would. It will take years for this paint to break down. Enjoy your new experience at the Pinal Cemetery!

We had gone out to see Mattie this past week....everything is gone...no trace of ANYTHING. We put a picture of her up years ago..racked the rocks, etc. Nothing..not a trace of anything now!!!! What happened????? We are sick about it.
That is awful that anyone would feel the right to destroy, remove, or omit anyone's gravesite, that is a sacred thing, and should be respected, I thank you for being a caring person enough to honor Mattie by restoring her memorial, I was there a few times, in 2015, and was able to find what appeared to be her gravesite, there was a jar there that had a picture in it, and some notes, and a grave marker, I am assuming that means, someone was able to locate the missing items, and put them where they belonged! Thank you again for being kind hearted enough to do this for her, I know she would appreciate it
