The upper stone in the bottom picture has the gravestone inscription for Celestino and the lower stone has the inscription for Pauline. The vault is along the fence on the north side of the cemetery on Alcaniz St., south of the entry gate. The cemetery records transcription done by Lola Lee Daniell Bruington, indicates that Charles B. Gonzalez is buried in the vault also, although the inscriptions on the front of the vault do not show that.
