A kind volunteer from wwww.FindAGrave.com researched the Moravietz grave for me. She reports the office for San Fernando cemeteries is at SF#2. The staff there suggested San Jose Burial as some of the downtown graves were moved there but that conflicts with other info. See below for addresses, & FindAGrave.com for maps and name searches, etc.

A previous post stated: "...Catholic portion of the Campo Santo was actually the part of the cemetery north of today's Houston Street. It was located under the most southern part of the present day Santa Rosa Hospital. The portion of the Campo Santo located south of Houston St. is the old Protestant Cemetery...as the Santa Rosa Hospital was being built (as improvements were being added...the excavated bodies would be moved to San Fernando Cemetery #1. But that most recently, any excavated bodies are now being re-interred at San Fernando Cemetery #2."

The Cathedral of San Fernando is located on Main and Dolorosa, some distance west of the Alamo and west of the SA River. One/two blocks further west is Santa Rosa Medical, north side of Houston St., and Milam Park on the south side of Houston, just inside HY 35/10.

This is the site of the old old Campo Santo de San Fernando, predecessor of San Feranando #1 at 1100 South Colorado, based on: "The City Cemetery and Catholic Cemetery were located at today’s Milam Park and Santa Rosa Hospital, respectively. In the 1850s, City Council announced that all bodies would be removed and moved to a new cemetery."
