I worked on that cemetery years ago and heard a story about this person to be a vampire. Story says that half was burried in Ketchikan and half on another island.

Mrs. John Zitz Dies at 62
Mrs. John D. Zitz, 62, resident of Ketchikan since 1922, died in her apartment home on Front street last night from heart failure after a brief illness.
Mrs. Zitz came here from her homeland of Yugoslavia to join her husband, who now is employed at the Ketchikan Cold Storage dock. In addition to the widower three sons survive. They are Val, local buyer for Oxenberg Brothers fish company; John, also of Ketchikan, and Nicholas, who lives in Seattle.
