|Joseph Mora Plot|
I knew from newspaper and death records they were both buried at Palma Sola but there was no marker that could be found for them when a census of the older graves was done.
I obtained an old map of the cemetery from the Manatee Historical Library showing the original owners of the plots from around 1920.
The map showed Joseph Mora owned a plot next to my great uncle Nathan Fulford. The older plots have room for 8 graves.
|Marker for Minnie and Ernest|
It was next to a round concrete grave cover that had the initials "MM" cut into the base.
Next to this was a small marker with just the initials "EM." Joseph and Minnie had a son named Ernest who died in 1916 so this must be his grave.
The one next to him with the MM initials must be Minnie's. The marker has the wrong year of death for both of them but it was probably put there years later.
