Biography

Glenview Cemetery is located just north of the town of Clements in northeastern San Joaquin County. The land for the cemetery was donated by Thomas Clements, founder of the town which bears his name (1890). Some graves predating the founding of the cemetery were moved from the older Macville Cemetery across the Mokelumne River from Clements. Buried in Glenview are Thomas Clements and members of his family, as well as members of other pioneer farming families, including the Athearns and the Wardrobes.

Scope and Content

The Glenview Cemetery Records list each person buried there, together with the date of their burial, their place of origin, their age at death and the cause of their death. The information is recorded in ink on several hundred 3 x 5 cards. The Glenview Cemetery Scrapbook contains color photographs taken by Christine Edwards Howard (1988-1989) depicting: different views of the cemetery and its surroundings; participants in a spring clean-up (May 1989); grave markers of war veterans buried in the cemetery; images of vandalized graves; and, views of a Memorial Day service held at Glenview (1991).
