What was done with the bodies of the Chinese who died?

From: "Chen-Johnson, Mary" mchenjohnson@tacomacc.edu

... Do you have any information about what was done with the bodies of the Chinese who died during the building of the Transcontinental Railroad? Were they buried where they died or were the corpses sent back to China? Any help would be appreciated.
