RE: Narcissa Arnett gravesite
That's sad, but what else can you do? My great and great great grandfathers are buried in an Inman "family cemetery" in the middle of Missouri on private property that they used to own. It's in a shambles. The cattle have knocked over what headstones remained and the chain link fence is laying on the ground. I have searched for help in trying to renovate it, but I don't have the money to do what really needs to be done. All I can do is visit there every so often and look for my ancestors' grave sites/headstones. Thanks for all your help and information.

Memorial Transfer

Would you mind transferring the memorial of Narcissa Arnett (#46493313) to me. She is an Inman relative of mine.

Thank you.

Sallie Teeter
Ah, I could not leave this alone! I found her family on the 1880 census in Murray, Alameda, Calif. I didn't know where it was,& I grew-up in Livermore. So...I had to keep looking. Hey, that's what we do, right?

I found that all eastern Alameda county was called Murray, Calif in 1880.
Read this-
And the 1870 census-
I hope this helps someone.

Sallie's (memorial# 46497788)headstone is in the Livermore Historical Society (the old library). Someone found it in their backyard & not knowing what to do with it, donated it!

The Oak Knoll cemetery is also known as Boot Hill. It's next to Granada high school on Wall Street. Winter in my freshman year, 1968, it rained so much that graves washed up. They would not let us go up there to site see! The boys were quite chivalrous & made sure we girls didn't see the gross stuff!

GRaves/ Hawley
I don't think the graves were ever moved..maybe some were but as far as I know they were not. Just the tomb stones were removed and put at the maintenance yard in Livermore and families of relatives who are/were buried there could come get their grave stone if they so wanted it it

RE: Oak Knoll Cem Livermore
Yes I live in the area but am unfamiliar with the old pioneer cemetery location. I just 'discovered' a first cousin 3 times removed was buried there! Who knew? Quite exciting really. He built the old fir house across from the Cinema West theater and it was first built as the FH Hawley Building, housing the Bank of lIvermore! Quite exciting to find this when I was in Trader Joe's the other day and used the restroom there right outside of the restroom door are some old pictures of some buildings around town and voila..there was the Hawley building as it was first made(red brick) and then when Fordyce (Hawley's first name) died in 1890 irt was a boarding house for a few years and then the City made it their Town Hall building and after that it was made into a fire house! It is Fordyce who is buried in the old Pioneer cemetery. His family came from back east money but I do not know if his grave was ever moved to another burial place.

Oak Knoll Cem Livermore
Do you know where the old cemetery stones are? If they are still available to relatives>
I saw this

Corner of East Stanley Blvd and Wall St
Alameda County
California USA
Postal Code: 94550

Cemetery notes and/or description:
"Around the turn of the century, the Catholic, Masonic and IOOF cemeteries came into existence, so burials at Oak Knoll became less common. It is not known when the last burial took place there. Oak Knoll was formally abandoned as a public cemetery in April 1963, to be dedicated as a public park. The existing gravestones were removed, and advertised as available to any descendent who wanted them. Today, Oak Knoll still holds that unique attraction for us that probably attracted the early settlers of the Valley to it."
thought I'd ask if you knew anything about it?
Is this around where the daffodills grow on the hillside in the spring? Looks like it

George Harlan
Hi Brandi,

My g grandmother married one of George's sons, John Daniel Harlan in 1896. Her name was Emma Adelaid Smith. He was her second husband and lived and died in Alameda County on the 19th of August 1941. He was born on 16Jun1866 most likely in Alameda County. I have pictures of John. He was a wonderful man. I googled Goerge, and found that he was part of the Donner Party of immigrants who died near Truckee on the east side of Donner Pass in California. Fortunately George and some others split up in Nevada and headed towards Oregon. Goodle it. It is a fascinating story.

Minnie Fleming 1881-1971
Hello: We drove over to IOOF Cemetery in Lakeview, Oregon. Minnie is listed in Block 70. Just of East of 70 is Block 69 where John Anderson is buried. Standing there I took the photograph of Block 70 (West of Block 70). There is no grave marker for Minnie Fleming in Block 69. If this is acceptable or not please let me know. Please contact me at angranch at

Bernice Boucher
I noted your request for a photo. I looked at the cemetery's burial book and it shows the grave is unmarked but I will go look as I have found a number that are marked even though the book notes otherwise. Also, there are three other Boucher graves in Walnut Hill so I added memorials for them. The three are together but apart from Bernice. The book shows only Hiram has a marked grave but I will look if you are interested in them.

Recently, I noticed on a message on another page that your were looking for Robnett. I found Neil A Robnett and was able to link him with his parents. Just in case you were interested.

RE: Thanks
Did you notice the two William Andersons buried beside Bernice? I didn't know if you were interested in them but figured they are related.

Kevin A. Maus
Clyde Barren Mulkey

Thank you for the information on the middle name correction for Byron Mulkey. I got his middle name from a book written in 1982 titled "The Mulkeys of America" authored by Philip Mulkey Hunt in collaboration with my father Richard L. Maus who is a descendant of the Mulkey Family line. I know that sometimes the information published is not always correct and I think the WWI Draft information may be more correct. The name on the draft registration for nearest living relative is Nannie which is what I have as another name for Byron's mother Nancy. So with that information I think that this is more than likely the same Byron Mulkey as his birth date matches too. I have made the correction to Byron's memorial based on the draft registration. None of the census records that I have indicate a middle name one way or the other.

Thanks again for your helpful tip.
