RE: Patrick O'Hea
Here is what I know which may be helpful. The mortuary records are online at There is also a site at It has some records for the period 1850-1905. You can get death records for period 1904 to present on ancestry, but I've found that there are a lot missing. The Sonoma County Office of Vital Records says you can get death certificates for period 1850 to present, but you have to have so much information that it is almost a waste of time, especially if your ancestor has a common name. I had that problem with one of my ancestors then I finally found his date of death and got the certificate. The only source above where you can get detailed information, such as parents, place of birth, etc., is on the death certificate. You might want to use the information I have on Patrick and order the death certificate. You might be able to determine if he is your ancestor with something on the death certificate that you do know. Good luck.

RE: thanks for Catherine McCue photo
Hi Catherine,

There is something else you could do, if you want. The cemetery can place a marker on the exact spot where Catherine McCue was buried. They do it at no cost and within 24 to 48 hours, just by calling them at 718-786-8000, providing them with the name of the deceased person and the exact grave location: 11-18-Q-3/4. If you decided to do that, I would go back to her grave and take a photo at the marker.

Mary Ann Sullivan
I saw you had flowers put on Mary Ann Sullivan Geisenhoff's grave and said you were cousins. She would be my great grandmother. My grandmother was her daughter Catherine. I have no information at all on the family and wonder if you do. I thought Mary Ann was born in Ireland but maybe her parents were?? Do you know much about the Geisenhoff's? I never knew until a few years ago that there were other daughters, my grandmother's sisters. No mention was ever made of them while my grandmother or mother were alive. We only knew of Henry and Fred. And it looks like there was another brother Anthony. Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

D. Courtney
No relations, I put over 5,000 entries in that cemetery, just to let those who seek their relatives find them. There was too much great history in the developement of southwest La. here in this cemetery to let it go un-noticed... maybe Mr. Courtney helped, that was all I could find on him... Charles

Happy to Help
No problem! I live about a mile away from the cemetery, so I've decided to start taking pictures and posting them on Find a Grave. Just glad that I could help and that he was pretty easy to find. Do let me know if you need anyone else from Calvary.

O'Hea Marker
I found the original photo, but it wasn't of much help for the top of the marker. I don't know if this helps you or not, but the stone was for two other people - James Worthington and Catherine Worthington. Theirs are very legible.

O'Hea Marker
I can't read the top of the grave marker either. I'll look for the original photo, but I usually delete them after posting. It looks to me that it is another marker. The next time I'm out there I'll look again. Sorry that it's not very clear. Some markers are very hard to photograph.
