Hi
I wonder if anyone in the area of Vanderwagon can help me? I hope so as I live in England and research at that distance is difficult!

I am trying to trace my grandfather who, according to records I have, is buried at Pine Tree Mission Cemetery, Vanderwagon. Can anyone out there tell me whether this cemetery still exists?

If so, can you tell me anything more about the mission and/or the cemetery?

My grandfather was, I believe, a missionary in New Mexico and was well known and respected. This is reflected by the fact that it appears he was buried at the mission despite dying in Colorado.

If anyone is near enough to the mission to confirm that his grave is still marked that would be great as I would like to arrange a visit if it is. Also, any information there may still be about my grandfather would obviously be greatly appreciated.

His name was Rev. Leslie Ingram, and his wife was Jane or 'Jennie' (she is also, I believe, buried at the mission). He died in 1960, and my grandmother in 1979. They had, I believe six sons.

Here's hoping someone can help me!
