I wanted to share another view of the San Lorenzo Pioneer Cemetery. This view shares a bit of the destruction that happened here in the past, along with some mature trees. You see a bit of this behind the headstone that is front and center. This is a view down one side of the cemetery, where you can see there was a black cyclone fence installed to help protect these monuments. This photo was taken quite a while ago so I am looking forward to heading there again one day soon to see how the refurbishing project is coming along that the Hayward Area Historical Society has been working on.
The headstone front and center is the resting place of:
MRS. MARY BUCHANNAN
JAN. 22, 1888.
