Graves in Laredo, Tx

Cuesta tombstone in Laredo, Tx
Block 60; Graves 43 and 44 facing Meadows St. in the Catholic Cemetery:


Six burial spots numbered from left to right.

 

Grave 43:
Spot #1: Vacant
Spot #2: Vacant
Spot #3: Lorenzo Cuesta Ortiz (ashes)

 

Center area between Grave 43 and Grave 44:
   Juan F. Cuesta;
   Isabel Ortiz de Cuesta;
   Concepcion Cuesta Cantu (infant);
   and maybe Olivia Cuesta Ortiz (teen).

 

Grave 44:
Spot #1: Vacant
Spot #2: Vacant
Spot #3: Vacant

If 5 spots are vacant, why would anyone squeeze 4 bodies (2 adults, 1 teen, 1 infant) between 2 graves?

 

Date of death (burial):
1. Concepcion Cuesta Cantu – November 21, 1919 (11/22/1919)
2. Juan F. Cuesta – April 9, 1923 (4/10/1923)
3. Olivia Cuesta Ortiz – April 28, 1924 (4/29/1924)
4. Isabel Ortiz de Cuesta – October 7, 1947 (10/8/1947)
5. Lorenzo Cuesta Ortiz – November 25, 1995 (1995)

 

Olivia Cuesta Ortiz was always at 60-43/44. Originally, Juan F. Cuesta was located at 29-11-19, and Concepcion Cuesta Cantu was at 20-13-19.

 

Apparently both Juan and Concepcion were moved to 60-43/44, perhaps when a larger plot was purchased to bury Olivia Cuesta Ortiz, plus both Juan and Concepcion. A tomstone was added and it lists Juan and Isabel, only. On November 1995 the ashes of Lorenzo Cuesta Ortiz were added to the gravesite.

 

(Juan Cuesta Soto is still buried at Block 62. He died and was buried on July 20, 1947. He was the son of Jesus Cuesta Ortiz and Consuelo Soto; married to Alicia Guevara de Ortiz.)
