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.|

We were at the Abbey for a family reunion. What a beautiful setting for an eternal resting place.
|Patti Cashman||RE: Mary Brogan at St Denis Cemetery|
I'm glad this info helps to answer some questions.
|Patti Cashman||Mary Brogan at St Denis Cemetery|
I was determined to find Mary's grave marker but there is not one. I do have some information about plot: Section I Range 1 Lot # 5. It was purchased on 5/14/1905 by John Brogan for $60. It is stated that there are 4 graves in the plot but 7 names are listed as being buried in the plot.
the following are on the list:
Burial yr name burial date age
1917 Brogan Hugh 3/12/17 46
1918 Brogan Margaret 5/19/18 70
1923 Brogan John 5/1/23 77
1926 Culbertson John 3/6/26 50
1926 Gibbons Edward 7/1/26 64
1927 Donohue Baby 11/18/27 3 hrs
1931 Gibbons Margaret 11/13/31 62
I was mistakenly given this information by the cemetery office and thought I would share it with you. If you speak with the cemetery office, please do not let them know that I shared this with you. They are very protective of the information they have concerning who is buried there. They will share information with families but not Find A Grave volunteers. My husband is buried at St Denis and I was able to get some information before they said they cannot share anymore with me.
Happy 4th of July!

Same message as previous one. If you do not want the gravesite pictures, I will be happy to remove them.
|Theresa O||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.

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,
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.
|Courtney Hamilton||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.
|Jennifer Fowler||RE: finnegan request|
Very cool! About the money! A lot of the graves I noticed in that cemetery just had last names no first names attached hope yof have a great holiday! !
|Jennifer Fowler||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. :)
