Gravestone Inscription: Clara I. wife of J. Mulock Jan. 27, 1834 – Jan. 18, 1899
Note: The Alma cemetery and Buckskin cemetery are one in the same. The cemetery was originally called the Buckskin cemetery because it was next to the original town of Buckskin Joe, now a ghost town. President Theodore Roosevelt approved the land grant for the cemetery to be used by Alma residents on 3/21/1902, Patent No. 1638.
Clara (Halstead) Mulock was the first wife of Joshua Mulock, marrying in 1871 according to Mr. Mulock’s obit (available in the Fairplay Flume, February 11, 1916 p.1). After Clara died, he remarried two years later on August 26, 1901 to widow Anna Carmichael (first wife of Samuel Carmichael). Anna died in 1909 (her obit is available in the Fairplay Flume January 29, 1909 p.1). Joshua Mulock, Anna Mulock and Sam Carmichael are also buried in the Alma/Buckskin cemetery, but photos are not available as of this writing.
Source: the following was taken from the Fairplay Flume Newspaper (Fairplay, Park County) dated January 20, 1899 page 2.
As we go to press the sad intelligence reaches us that Mrs. Joshua Mulock died Wednesday morning, having been very ill for some weeks past. Mr. and Mrs. Mulock came to Park County in ’72 and have resided in Alma almost continuously since that time, being among her most highly respected citizens. The bereaved husband has the deep sympathy of the entire community.
The funeral, which was one of the largest ever witnessed in Alma, took place this afternoon, the remains being interred in the town cemetery.
