At the suggestion of my cousin, Terrie Henderson, I decided to check out some cemeteries in Catron County, New Mexico. Several of the sites I perused had extensive details of both the lives and deaths on the individual Find-A-Grave web page. For instance, the Boot Hill Cemetery has but 8 interments. Initially I thought this might be a good one to research but since a lot of information has already been documented, I wanted to find something more challenging.
I continued looking through the Catron County cemeteries and came upon the Glenwood Cemetery. I saw a picture of a sign with the name of the cemetery:
The name of the founder, A.E. Sipe, caught my eye and the fact that the precise founding date was noted. Would I find A.E. Sipe himself buried in this cemetery?
This article has been “snipped”. The article was updated, with new research and sources, for the September-October 2020 issue of Digging History Magazine. It is included in the article entitled “The Dash: A.E. Sipe (1855-1909)” with much more research about Adolphus Elijah Sipe and his family, plus what really happened to him. How and where did he die? This issue is Part II of a short series of articles dedicated to New Mexico history and how to find the best genealogical records.
