Burial Information

On November 20, 2002, Alex sent me this information:

I have spoken to Brian Kennell at Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg, PA and obtained the following information on burials there. This would be of particular interest to all those related to August Hugo Bach (later August Hugo Bach-Gaston) and his son Theodore "Paul Robert" Bach-Gaston (Paul Gaston).

    (1) Anna Gaston - buried 1952 - Lot 120, Area V, Plot 1 (your father's mother)
    (2) John Gaston - buried 1953 - Lot 120, Area V, Plot 2 (your father's brother)

    For more information go to:  Evergreen Cemetery, Gettysburg, PA online.

My grandmother, Anna Maria (ne Hermann) de Gaston died October 12, 1951 in Los Angeles, and her oldest son, John Raoul Gaston (John dropped the "de") are buried beneath this gravestone.  John's wife was named Catherine.  My grandfather is August Hugo Bach, and he died January 13, 1921 in Philadeplphia, Pennsylvania. The location of his grave is unknown to my branch of the family.
