     He does not appear in Divide Cemetery records. A Mecartea family correspondant states in email to Karen Davis of GYGM in 2007 "Don't know when [Elias] died, but he shows up on the 1870 census, at least I think he does under the initials of EC. [Padden and Schlictmann] claim that 13 Mecartea kids lived in that house in BOF so you think he would be buried there. According to James Mecartea's records Elias was born 16 Aug 1856." James Mecartea of Tacoma, Washington added in April, 2007: " I have searched the cemetery at Chinese Camp several times. It lies across the road from the town. There is no headstone for Eliias MECARTEA . I believe he died in an Epidemic but I cannot prove it. His middle name is Washington. That also is the name of the main street in Chinese Camp. I have talked personally with a member of the Cemetery board. No plot plan exists he said. Fresh graves appeared from time to time in the cemetery. I asked him if it was possible persons were being buried on top of other graves. He said it is possible." Elias Washington Mecartea was born on 16 August 1856 at Chinese Camp, Tuolumne Co., California.1,2 He was the son of James Wyatt Mecartea and Elvira (Smith) Mecartea.1 No death record has been found for Elias.

    I'm looking for a connection to my GGGrand Father John Brickley who was married to Sarah McCormick.

    John Brickley fought in the Civil War (Union side) with the Illinois Cavalry, and then later came with wife Sarah to California.

    They had a daughter named Margaret Mae ("Maggie") Brickley. She married George MeCartea -- and we spelled it McCartea -- but it is McCarthy clan.

    Any assistance on the Irish side would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Bill J.

    Hello Kathleen,
    Here's a link to the Calvary Cemetery in Fresno, California, where our
    HURLEY family members are buried. It's a long list, so look under H--
    http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ca/fresno/cemeteries/…

    Timothy HURLEY (1866 - 4/21/1918) in the list was the second husband of
    my g-grandmother Margaret HURLEY also buried there (5/29/1866 -
    1/11/1950). Tim HURLEY was a blacksmith, and Margaret's first husband
    was blacksmith George MECARTEA, son of the James MECARTEA in my earlier
    post on Chinese Camp and Big Oak Flat, California. Margaret's maiden
    name was BRICKLEY, and her mother is buried there too, listed as Sarah
    M. BRICKLEY (no date of birth; date of death 10/11/1908) She was born in
    Ireland, and her maiden name was McCormick. Her husband, not buried
    there, was John BRICKLEY born in Cork, Ireland, who served in the Civil
    War on the Union side in Illinois, and then came out to California. If
    you find any connection, I would appreciate your letting me know.
    Best wishes,
    Judy
