We have compiled our own virtual cemetery. We tried to gather as many of the suffragists of early Long Beach in one spot. Some were buried in Long Beach, others in Los Angeles county and still others in other states.
It is difficult tracking burial sites for women who died before the 1970s because most newspaper accounts only include the name of the husband: i.e. Mrs. C.H. Spence. To find this suffragist, one must find the records of her husband and then trace where she was buried. Consequently, many suffragists were not found.
Take a moment and visit them and say "thank you." It is because of them and so many others that women won their right to vote!
