Elmira Cemetery


Elmira Cemetery in Vacaville is located just down the road from the Factory Outlets.  It is very easy to find.  If you're in the area, it's worth checking out.

If you walk the cemetery, do bring a big bottle of water.
I forgot just how hot it gets in Vacaville!

It is very neatly maintained and all of the stones are very easy to read. 


It is rather cramped though.
Mike and I were surprised to see graves right
along the roadside.

 It also turned out to be a good place
for viewing Jackrabbits.  
(Yes, they are real.)

This was the only cracked stone we saw.
It made me want to learn a little about Mr. Pasley...

Benjamin Franklin PASLEY was born 24 October 1890 in Pleasant Plains, Independence County, Arkansas.  The third son of Charles Lee Pasley and Mary Lou COZART, he was married to Mary Essie HAMMETT at the age of 22 years.  The couple had several children before moving to California.  Their descendants still live in the area.
