Notes

General Note:
The broken grave marker of Thomas, John, Nora, and Mona Buckley leans against some stone in a storage area of the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1005 York Street, in the Cheesman Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. The gardens were constructed in 1951 at the former site of the Mount Calvary Cemetery (1858-1950), the Roman Catholic portion of the former City Cemetery (Denver). The marker was found in 1977 during an expansion project. Inscribed on the column: "Thomas G., Died Nov. 7 1889, Aged 3YS. 10MS. 22 DS." and "John M., Died Nov. 28 1889, Aged 5YS. 3 MS. 9DS."
