Bio Photo Thanks to all of the volunteers that search through these cemeteries, whether small and overgrown, or chaotic and cramped, to simply huge!

I will be happy to walk miles through cemeteries looking for plots that people want photos of, so if it is in the Livermore CA area, write to me directly and I'll take a look. When I go out, I usually will pick a few interesting ones out for photos too!

RE: Photo request for Jewell Sweet
Hello Brandi,
I found your note on Find A Grave today,March 21,2014. Sorry it has taken me so long to return a reply.

I would like a picture of Jewell Elaine Smart Sweet.
Where did you find the picture of her?

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.

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
