Please visit Tinker's Hill Cemetery in Gardiner MT, Park Co!! I went this summer to see two of my anscestors grave sites. I was directed to this info by Jon Swenumson, Livingston (Park Co.) Librarian in MT. He found one of the graves listed in the book 'Death in Yellowstone' by Lee H. Whittlesey. The cemetery is actually located inside Yellowstone Nat'l Park, about a mile north of Gardiner, in Montana's Paradise Valley.
My 4x Great Grandfather is buried there. His tombstone reads: "Alexander Deckard 1836-1895". The other is for my 3x Great Uncle, Alexander's son, Frank Deckard. His stone reads: "Frank Deckard 6 Dec 1874--Oct 1930".
Whittlesey's book is great! He has quite a few references to different people buried in Tinker's Hill. Mr. Whittlesey says that there is a sales list for Tinker's Hill that he used to get the information, but it is not included in the book. Mammoth Civilian Cemetery in Yellowstone Park, and Fort Yellowstone Army Cemetery are covered in even greater detail. Some of these Cemeteries have maps and lists of graves. I just wanted to get this out so anyone else searching for any Deckard's would have another clue. And anyone who has had family in the greater Yellowstone Park area from 1850 to 1950, this is a terrific resource!
