    Hello,

    I grew up in the Newport Hills area, and used to wander the hills around Lake Boren as a kid in the 1970’s and ’80’s.

    It seems that no Chinese grave markers have been found in the Newcastle Cemetery or in the Newcastle area.

    I find this baffling for the following reason: As a kid, I saw gravestones with Han characters carved on them in the woods near Lake Boren. They were green with moss. There were at least half a dozen of them, some fallen over. They left a deep impression on me.

    I would welcome any comment, explanation or questions.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Sincerely,

    Pamela Merrien
