Why aas Anne not buried with Charles? Is it because the family knew about his relationship with other women and possible children? Did Charles tell his family about his German children before he died? Any ideas?

The Palapala Ho'omau Church is located 8 miles south of Hana on the ocean side of the highway. A small road just past Mile Marker #41 leads to the church.

Anne was not buried with Charles because she chossed not to. I believe the family scattered her ashes in many places that were dear to her. Speaking of the grave in Maui anyone visiting it should be aware that it is not easy to locate and that it takes quite a long drive to reach the intersection leading to the church. My suggestion while trying to visit the grave is to allow yourself a lot of time to reach it. I can tell you by personal experience as flash flooding once prevented me to reach it. By the way the graveyard is not a public place and access is rather restricted.

A friend just visited the gravesite in Maui. I am trying to track down more information--but it was told to my friend that Lindbergh was buried with his couch (or sitting on his couch). Have you ever heard of this? I am trying to find out more.

Hello Sherry,

I had only heard about blankets being used for CAL's final burial. Have you checked Berg's biography of Lindbergh (widely available)?

Anne herself was cremated as stated above.

I just went to Maui in November and took the road to Hana. I had no problems finding CAL's gravesite, but I did watch the road markers carefully after the 7 sacred pools (about 10-15 minutes before the turnoff for CAL's grave site). It was a rather obsure site, but peaceful with a great view. You can see the big island's mountain from the edge of the churchyard.

Our family just returned from Maui, and visited the grave site. The church is in excellent repair, looks as if it has recently been painted. The marble slab is freshly polished, and looks in excellent condition. On the slab was a small model of the NYP plane, and a fresh lei. Grass in the graveyard is nicely mowed.
In contrast the Pryor graves are all very badly weather worn. The inscriptions will soon be hard to read.
The site is beautiful. My wife and I were struck by the emotions the site raised. How beautiful and serene, yet how lonely.

Per Charles Lindbergh’s instructions, he was buried inside a heavy Eucalyptus coffin wearing a pair of old Gray cotton pants and khaki shirt. He was wrapped in a Hudson Bay blanket with the pillow he sat on during his Transatlantic Flight tucked under his head according to Jean O. Saunders, Lindbergh’s secretary.

I had heard that Anne was cremated and her ashes were scattered but do not know where. It would be my guess that some made it to Hawaii to be with Charles.

There is no indication that any of Anne's ashes were ever transferred to Hawaii and there appears to have been no such instruction by her. We can only guess as to her motivation in this most personal of decisions.
