In 1920 and 1930 Census Canelo was listed as Canille
In 1880 and 1900 it is listed under Elgin District.

It is said that we each have 3 deaths
The First when we die
The Second when we are laid to rest
And the Third when our name is never spoken again.

This is a partial listing of the headstones & burials
of people that lived or had lived in Canelo,
and surrounding areas including, Elgin & Sonoita
Many of these people I knew or my parents knew.
For some of the following people I have added the name
of the spouse and parents, also the place of birth
or death. I have found much of this information
on the Internet under Arizona Birth & Death records,
Social Security Death Index, World War I draft registration, and
United States Census.

If you have information (or know someone who does)
about anyone buried in this cemetery. Please contact me!
My e-mail address is below

I am in the process of adding photos of people and their headstones.
