    Photograph of crosses marking graves within a plot bordered by a white picket fence, ca.1898. There are seven wooden crosses, and an eighth one painted white. On the mounded graves in front of them are clear bottles and other glass containers, broken plates (white) and pieces of white pottery. One of the crosses has an alarm clock (3:20) at its base. The cross in the foreground has an alarm cross (6:58) hanging from it. The ends of this cross, both horizontal and vertical, are forked, creating a ribbon-like effect on the horizontal arm. The horizontal arm of the cross behind it is cut to produce a three-pointed edge on each end. Legible writing includes: "Juana de Paliwhuash, morio el dia 19 de Julio, 1899, a la una de tarde", "Constancia Ybarra, na[...], dia 13 de Mar. del ano 1859, morio el 18 de Mar. del ano 1877[?], edad 18 anos 4 dias".; Luiseno (Cupeno?) was moved here in 1903 (Bull 30, p.192). less
