RESTHAVEN CEMETERY

 

RESTHAVEN CEMETERY AND MEMORIAL PARK, INC., Parcel #21-10-27-0000-0250-0000, is located at the corner of Old San Mateo Road and Live Oak Street in San Mateo and lies diagonally across the road from the entrance to the Browning-Pearce Elementary School.   It is a reasonably well maintained Black Cemetery deeded from Browning Lumber Company to the Resthaven Cemetery and Memorial Park, Inc., February 11, 1959 by OR 29 P 71.   SATSUMA QUAD.   N 29o 36.650 W 81o 34.851.   (Maintained).

 

NOTE:  This cemetery had never been surveyed.  It comprises about five acres and is divided into two parts with a road running north-south down the center.  I surveyed the eastern portion on June 16, 2003, before the heat did me in.  I went back on Saturday September 27 and October 18, 2003 and completed the western half by photographing it with a digital camera.  I will return another day and photograph the eastern half.

 

I noted that the vast majority of interments are vaults with plastic temporary funeral home markers on them.  Many of these are in the process of breaking up and going away.  Several vaults are unmarked now due to this.  PLEASE mark the grave of your loved one with a permanent marker.  I can tell that you know who your folks are by all the flowers on the unmarked vaults.  However, no one else knows who they are, and eventually you will enter the Sunset of your life without anyone ever being marked.  Thank you, Mary E. Murphy, Putnam County Archivist (Ret.).
