Edith Wynne Matthison (1875-1955), Anglo-American stage actress who also appeared in two silent films, is buried at Inglewood Park Cemetery (720 E Florence Ave, Inglewood, CA 90302). Rumored to have had a relationship with Edna St Vincent Millay (1892-1950). Oher notable queer burials at Inglewood Park Cemetery: Sylvester James, Jr. (1947-1988), who used the stage name of Sylvester, American singer-songwriter; Gypsy Rose Lee (1911–1970), actress and burlesque dancer; Cesar Romero (1907-1994), American actor, singer, dancer, voice artist, and comedian who was active in film, radio, and television for almost 60 years (Romero never married and had no children, but made frequent appearances at Hollywood events escorting actresses, such as Joan Crawford, Linda Darnell, Barbara Stanwyck, Lucille Ball, Ann Sheridan, Jane Wyman, and Ginger Rogers; he was almost always described in interviews and articles as a "confirmed bachelor". Many Hollywood historians have speculated that Romero was a closeted gay man); Lawrence W. Tonner (1861-1947), Jesse Shepard's devoted secretary and companion for over forty years.
