RE: james lynch
I'd like to be in touch, but do not want my email address on a public site.

Did I miss your e-address on the site?

All the best now, cousin.

My grandfather was James A Lynch, son of John and Margaret. He died in 1962 in Chicago. He and my grandfather had one child, my father, James E Lynch.

As a girl, I knew Aunt Lucy, Aunt Marguerite and Aunt Edna. As a young woman I came to know Aunt Florence.

As a small girl, I was close to the Donahue family as Pat and my father were close cousins. Over the years I had some contact with the Lipperts, including hosting their son, my cousin removed, for Thanksgiving when he was a student at Northwestern University. My husband was a professor there at the time.

I am curious about our possible relationship.

RE: John & Margaret Dawson at Holy Cross Cemetery
SABRINA 27 MAR 2015: Hi Kati, I took a photo of the Dawson plot at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, CA. In the plot John and Margaret Dawson, along with their children Nora Dawson and Sarah Kehoe, and their grandchild Ethel Cronin are buried there. Nora and Ethel are not listed on the stone. So their memorial pages have the family plot for the photo, but no close up of the stone. -Sabrina

KATI 31 MAR 2015: Thank you so much for your invaluable help, Sabrina! I know for all the volunteers at Find-A-Grave, the work we do is for love of family and those that came before us. I've made the necessary corrections to the Dawsons' memorial pages with your assistance. Best wishes, Kati

Mary Nelson-Colon
Alice Kelly grave
Hi Sabrina and thank you so much for trying to find her actual burial place. I would think they would have a record of where they buried her unless they just threw all those people into one grave and put a memorial over it! I will call them and be persistent since it is a relative I am inquiring about. I appreciate all your help and efforts in this matter. If I'm successful in getting an actual burial site, I will repost a photo request with that info. I am assuming the plot info (Plot: Sec CAL, Stat. 8, Area 37, Grave 7) that was placed on her memorial page was for the memorial site itself and not the grave?

Robert McCullough
I was thrilled to find the obit of Robert McCullough that you posted, as I think he might be the husband of Mary Conway McCullough, listed in the 1900 census in San Francisco as a widow with son Harold (age 7) and sisters Aggie (Agnes) and Emma Conway. Is this a line you are researching? If so, could be compare notes?

thank you again for the photo of baby Melba
Chamberlin's headstone….I have searched for her mother Susan and nothing showed her being at Holy Cross…I kept thinking she had to be because the rest of her Sutton family is there. So in finding little baby Melba you have also found her mother for me! So very much appreciated!!!

Sabrina thank you so much for the photo of the headstone for Melba Chamberlin. I just barely discovered her on I had no idea she even existed…poor little baby only one month old. Again, thank you so very much!!

RE: Mary Rank at Holy Cross Cemetery
Thank you so much for this information! I had no ida about the two babies that had died.

It's kind of odd that I'm doing this research. This Mary had a daughter Mary, and then a granddaughter Mary Furlong. I lived in her house for a number of years when I was in San Francisco. It's ended up that this Mary, Mary McLaughlin Rank, has no living descendants that I can find. Of her five children the twins died young, and the two boys died before hitting their thirties. Her daughter, Mary Rank Furlong, did have one child. Mary Uriel Furlong lived an interesting life and was spoken of fondly by the neighbors we eventually shared. I'm going to see what I can do to connect up the family tonight!

Martin Jones, FAG 121375425
Hello Sabrina, Thank you for creating the memorial for Martin Jones, Find A Grave 121375425. He served in the Civil War in the 134th NY Volunteer Infantry. I had an ancestor who served in the unit; I do research on it and have created a Virtual Cemetery for it, 381 names and counting.

I have verified through his civil war pension information that this is the Martin Jones who served in the 134th. The date and place of death match your Find A Grave information.

Please add the following to the “Bio” section of his memorial:

134th NY Volunteer Infantry, Cos. G & D

(1) “JONES, MARTIN.—Age, 21 years. Enrolled, August 13, 1862, at Sharon, to serve three years; mustered in as private, Co. G, August IS, 1862; promoted sergeant, September 2, 1862; first sergeant, May 1, 1863; wounded in action, at Gettysburg, Pa., July, 1S63; mustered in as first lieutenant, Co. D, January 9, 1865; mustered out with company, June 10, 1865, near Bladensburg, Md.
Commissioned, not mustered, first lieutenant, November 30, 1864, with rank from same date, vice J. W. Burkart discharged; recommissioned first lieutenant, February 28, 1865, with rank from December 1, 1864, vice C. W. Taylor promoted; captain, not mustered, June 22, 1865, with rank from June 1, 1865, vice G. W. Bishop, not mustered.”

(1) Report of the Adjutant-General, One Hundred and Thirty-Fourth Infantry, Page 666

Thanks again for creating his memorial.

RE: Patrick Commerfords
Hi Sabrina,
Thanks for the obit for Patrick H. From your info I added son Patrick J. to Find A Grave and linked him with his parents. Slowly working through the family.
Thanks again,

Patrick H. Commerford
Hi again,
Just remembered that I added a new page for Patrick H. Commerford #141193324 who died 21 Aug 1884 in San Francisco. Husband of Catherine (Kelly) Commerford. He was not listed in the cemetery's website, so also omitted by AlbgFirefly. When a photo request was fulfilled for Patrick C, the photo was actually for father Patrick (not son Patrick at Find A Grave) so I discovered where he was buried and when he died. If you're poking around for obits again and remember to try to find father Patrick, I would be tickled to see if you find him.

Commerfords' obits
Hi Sabrina,
Just saw the obits for the Commerford kids at Holy Cross. Thanks! They added info for birth and death dates which were vague or missing.
Keep up the good work.
