RE: Mary Ann Best O'Riley
Kevin, Do you belong to If not, you should join. There is a tree on there by JosephMurphy20 that has a ton of info on Mary Ann - including her obituary, death certificate, the 1871 census, etc. I can't see the documents because I don't have an international membership but you could/should contact him. He must be a relative to have all that info on her.

Good luck!

Hi Kevin,

Perhaps you didn't get the e-mail I sent you last April on this subject. I am including it here.

Hi Kevin,

When I read the obit for Mary Ann and learned she was from Ontario, I searched records for her parents. In Family Search (, I found this marriage record:

Birth Date:
Spouse's Name: Mary Anne Best

Mother's Name: Margaret Mcdonall
Spouse's Father's Name: Joseph Best
Spouse's Mother's Name: Catharine Mallon

Spouse's Marital Status:
Spouse's Previous Husband's Name:
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: I02288-3

Please let me know if you don't think this is the same Mary Ann Best. I am trying to contribute to Find A Grave to help people and want the records to be correct.

By now hopefully you will have seen all the stones that I have posted for you and noted that two of them were in the Old St. Francis Xavier Cemetery (Old Catholic Cemetery).
Regarding the one for Catherine Mallon Best, it is always so sad when I see a broken one lying on the ground as hers is. My own 3x great-grandmother's is also in the same cemetery and had broken off a few years ago. At the time there was a person working for the cemetery willing to repair it for a cost ($100.) He poured a new base and set it in and it is as good as new.

RE: Mcomber Photo
I can understand why it would be hard to find. The stone is VERY WORN and was almost face down until I was able to stand it back up. Fortunately the cemetery showed which section he should be in and I was able to read his wife's marker which was next to his.
