Red, Blue and Jacob Heintz: Sacramento, CA



Friend of the blog FARFLUNG writes:

"Hello again Eviliz,

Before Squeaky threatened President Ford with a gun and Sandra threatened some corporate presidents with a pen, they had managed to get in a couple news articles while in Sacramento.

I can’t find the original source of the photo with Red and Blue, where Squeaky is pointing towards a headstone like an elfin ‘Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come’. But I did find the exact location it was taken.

You can see behind Squeaky is the headstone of Jacob Marley, just kidding it’s really Jacob Heintz. Thanks to a Find-a-Grave search one can see the headstone is located in the Sacramento City Cemetery, Section 83, Lot 276. This particular cemetery is also a California Registered Historical Landmark, Number 566.

The Section 83 of the cemetery is closest to the intersection of Broadway and 9th St which is near the nuns' 17th and P St apartment. This cemetery is very much open to the public and actually contains some very historic and attractive gardens. Be sure to add this to your list of photo ops where you can strike a witchy pose in a blue or red robe; it could be habit forming (boom tish)."

Nice one, Farf. Very punny.

Patty did a little more reserch on Jacob Heintz. He was born in New York and somehow ended up as a soldier in the Civil War. He must have decided the soldier's life was not for him, so he paid an unfortunate soul the amount of $44 to take his place, and high tailed it out west. In Sacramento, he started a barber shop, served as License Collector under two sheriffs and ran for sheriff himself on the Populist ticket. Julie Keiffer of New York who is interred with her husband became his wife in 1867. Before his death he retired to farm 200 acres of the San Juan Land Grant, which today lies in the Citrus Heights suburb at Dewey and Winding Way.

"Holy Shit," said Mr. Patty. "Right there?" Yes, it is a small world and this is all very interesting trivia. However. What Patty wants to know is: exactly whose graves are Red and Blue directing their attention to? And might she presume to ask, why?

Patty,
I read somewhere that sleeping in a cemetary or some such, had to do with the Order of the Rainbow. I thought it was in this blog so maybe someone will fill in all I've forgotten.

Panamint Patty said...

Yes according to the Bravin Book, nuns in The Order of the rainbow should be able to perform feats like sleeping in an open casket, which shows that one has mentally conquered old Christian fears.

Patty thinks the point they were trying to make with their fingers pointed skyward is that we are all one, we all come from and go to mother earth.

So perhaps in the photo they are pointing to some random dead pioneer's grave. But, Patty needs to be certain, you see.

"Cemetry Gates"


A dreaded sunny day
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side

A dreaded sunny day
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
While Wilde is on mine

So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
All those people all those lives
Where are they now?
With the loves and hates
And passions just like mine
They were born
And then they lived and then they died
Seems so unfair
And I want to cry

You say: "ere thrice the sun done salutation to the dawn"
And you claim these words as your own
But I've read well, and I've heard them said
A hundred times, maybe less, maybe more

If you must write prose and poems
The words you use should be your own
Don't plagiarise or take "on loans"
There's always someone, somewhere
With a big nose, who knows
And who trips you up and laughs
When you fall
Who'll trip you up and laugh
When you fall

You say: "ere long done do does did"
Words which could only be your own
And then you then produce the text
From whence was ripped some dizzy whore, 1804

A dreaded sunny day
So let's go where we're happy
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
Oh Keats and Yeats are on your side

A dreaded sunny day
So let's go where we're wanted
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
But you lose because Wilde is on mine

Wasnt that a Smiths song lyric ?? The guy uses prashes, Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare and stuff, the Wilde on his side must be metafor for Oscar Wilde.
To come back at that foto of Red&Blue at the Cemetry, I always thought that is a very PowerFull photo, got some Vibes for sure. And something Completely Diff. now ,I do miss the contribution of Ken916 on such serious subjects like those the last week on the Blogg....Is Ken gone.. ??
And @Patty ....is there any evidence that Sandy&Lynette were Nuns, in a kinda ,grade, in the Order of the Rainbow Did they acomplish something like that..?? I mean how serious were they realy about that all. Did they spend years in 'celibacy' or is that not realy a codition/rule as a Nun in The Order of the Rainbow....???

Panamint Patty said...

Bellz, if you can get your hands on a copy of the Jess Bravin book Squeaky: The Life and Times of Lynette Alice Fromme, it would be well worth your time. All kinds of good info in there.

And as for Ken, Patty misses him too.

To Answer Eviliz' question:

NOT ME! LOL!
My brothers and friends and I once ate Chinese take-out in a lovely English graveyard in Surrey, one warm summer evening (MANY moons ago). We took photos. Our pix are easily as spooky as Red and Blue's Sacramento graveyard photoshoot. It was dark, and that added to the creepy factor.

I've taken an occasional nap in a cemetery but, there was never anyone around to sleep with.

EWWWW Cant really see the draw to it? Cant be a voyeur thing since there are no seeing eyes in a cemetery.
