Thanks for the follow up.I had corresponded with the office at the Lincoln Cemetery back in 1994 but was unable to obtain any further information other than a footstone with the initials "THJ" as I recall. They were interested in knowing if the 8 Jeter spaces block 30C of the Masonic section had in fact all been used for family burials.I did not know at the time and still don't know for sure.
It is almost certain that my great-great-uncle Thomas Horatio Jeter (1803->1880) (Thomas/William/John II/John I) rests there and perhaps his wife, Elizabeth Jane Harris. Thomas Horatio Jeter was a Mason and as far back as 1829 when he was a member of the Natchez, MS Jackson Lodge #2, and I have thought about contacting the Masonic Lodge in Lincoln to see if they have a record but never got around to it.It would be a great favor if you could follow up on that angle.
Of the children of Thomas Horatio and Elizabeth Jane Jeter:
1. Thomas H., Jr.(1853) married Mary Helen Hildreth, had a couple of girls --- Beth(1892) and Dorothy (1907) --- and were living in Oakland in 1900 and Los Angeles in 1920.
2. Frances Jeter(1855) married David? Howcroft, had three children --- Sarah(1873), Albert (1875) and E. George (1880).They were at the home of Frances' father in 1880. There was a David A. Howcroft who was born 1/30/1860 and died 1/24/1947 in Placer County, CA, and who was likely to have been Frances' husband. There was a George Edward Howcroft born 4/15/1921 and died in Placer County 3/17/1990 who was possibly the grandson of the E. George Howcroft noted above. Albert Leonard Howcroft, born 1/30/1877, died in Placer County on 2/17/1951 was likely the Albert noted above.Any one or all of the above may have been buried in the Lincoln Cemetery Jeter Plot.
3. Annie Jeter (ca 1861).Nothing more is known of her.
4. G. Gus Jeter (ca 1864).May have been the Gus Eaven Jeter on the 1890 voter list of Placer County.Nothing more is known.
5. William Emmett Jeter (June 1868) married Sarah R. Mann and had several children including Howard G. born 6/30/1896, died 9/11/1959, Sacramento, CA; Clara M. (1895); and possibly Woodward P. (1887)and William A. (?1891). This family was on the 1900 census of Mott Twp. in Siskiyou County, CA. William Emmett was a freight conductor.
Among others in my branch of the family in California at the time was Thomas Horatio Jeter's nephew, William T. Jeter of Santa Cruz, Lt. Governor of California in the 1890's.
