I have been interested in family history since I was a kid. I started working on our family back in 1978 when my Grandfather suddenly passed and I thought....where did we come from? Ended up getting many family members interested and researching over the years. I enjoy my own family and also everyone else's family history. It is always very interesting and love to find things years forgotten. Everyone, even those who die as infants have a story to be told. I enjoy helping their stories to come to light.
Margaret Anna Kelly Hi, I just posted the picture of Margaret's gravesite. Unfortunately, there is no headstone for either Kelly or Murphy there. Actually, that row Section Y, Row 8 is fairly void of headstones. Lot 22 would be to the right of O'Keefe but with O'Keefe's stone not being marked the the other stone further down not being marked, I was unable to determine where, exactly, the Lot would be. It is definitely one of the bare spots pictured though. If you do not want the picture of the site posted, just let me know and I will remove it immediately.
Frank J. McKeon There are 2 Frank J. McKeons buried at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. My ancestor, Frank J. McKeon was born in 1859 (in PA) and died 9/7/1924. His cause of death was myocarditis. The one you have added was born in 1856 and died 10/9/1923 from head injuries. The death certificate for my 1924 Frank shows he was buried by Kirk and Nice of Germantown while the certificate for your Frank lists McGoldrick of Jenkintown as the undertaker. I do not know if the 2 men are related but am interested in seeing a tombstone for both,
McGraths There's a Larry there, I see, but I don't know if they are buried together--you'd have to contact the cemetery for that info. Or maybe if you enter Photo Requests someone will get pics for you that would show that they are together.
Honora Finnegan Hi, Eileen, sorry it took me so long to write back. I'm going to ask my mother and grammy about Honora. That name is strikingly familiar, and I believe one of my living cousins over in Ireland has that name as well.
My Grandmother is Mary Carter, sister of Theresa Carter Koenig, and daughter of Sue C. Finnegan. Sue was married to Michael Carter, a captain of the Los Angeles Fire Department. Sue's parents were John Finnegan and Susie Shields. Hope that helps!
I will let you know more about Honora, and where Sue "Shorty" Finnegan (my gg grandmother) was buried. I know she passed away on April 15, 1972, in North Hollywood, California, but I don't know where her gravesite is.
finnegan request A friend of mine and I went to Old Cathedral where your request for Finnegan was in section S we walked through the whole section and about where you said the headstone would be I did see a Finnegan headstone but there was no names attached to it just the last name. I have no idea if this is the headstone you are looking for but it was in the approximate location in which you stated. Let me know when you can. :)
I'm a distant relative! What a trip! Hi, Eileen... my name is Courtney Hamilton, and I'm a distant relative of yours. My mother is Colleen Kearns, daughter of Mary Carter Kearns -- sister of Theresa. Their mother was Sue C. Finnegan, my great-grandmother.. her nickname was "Shorty", and my mom said she was the best Grandma ever. I am researching genealogy as well, and I'm constructing a family tree on familysearch.org.
