Nagles: Mary died Jul 27, 1841
Charles 1871-1955
Joseph D . 1876-1959
James Henry 1866-1960

Della Francis O'Neil 1902-1923 who is buried with baby boy Nagle O'Neil. Evan 1982 Michael; Thomas M O'Neil is buried right below them and in vicinity of Wm, Margaret and Eddy. The Nagels above are buried to left of Eddy.

Will upload Eddy's close up of headstone in a few days. Will also upload Ann & Patrick's if there are no pictures already upload.

Found two Patrick O'Neils. Let me know which is correct. Both are kind of close to Wm & Margaret.

Patrick O. Neill died 1/18/1886 and was from Emly Co. Tipparty Ireland

Patrick O'Neil died 6/27/1878 [Is this the correct one?].

Can't find:
Henry O'Neil G-4-8-7
Wm Henry O'Neil (5 mos) died 2/17/1876 20-5-4-3 nor Thomas O'Neil around same plot
John O'Neil (48) died 6/13/88 F-6-2-1 to 8

St. Mary's doesn't have records for Mary Agnes nor John McCloskey.
That's all I have.

RE: O'Neills
Hi Chris, I'm going to close out your initial request for now but I'll keep working on your other request. There's a really good Genealogist named Al J. who's been helping me at St. Mary's. He was able for find a lot of information but I now need to pull it all together then go back and get you photos and a summary. For now, here's what Al found out. He was only looking for the unknown baby and didn't know about other O'Neills but he found them. Pls also note 1yr old Sophy O'Neill.

Pls look over to see if anything it wrong and any notes you have for me.

From Al:
Hi Sonja,

There are some other O'Neill's in Section 1, Row 20 Plot 5, Graves 3, 4.
William Henry O'Neill & Thomas O'Neill. Not the same, maybe.

Also in Section 1, Row 23, Plot 5, Grave 7 are Ann [August 7, 1865] and Pat [May 27, 1871] Dunnigan. Ann appears to be an Adult.

I have no idea about them.

That is all I have.

Good Luck.

RE: O'Neills
Hey Chris is this your family just a project. I've uploaded all my pictures for William and added them to Margaret's site also. I still want to go back to cemetery and take a close up of Eddy's headstone.

I sent the front office at the cemetery a request for the plot numbers for everyone. When I was there last week she wasn't in the best of moods so I'm not try to be a pest with her. Here's the email I sent her. Hopefully, she responds before I get back there.

Hi Regina, I was in your office last Tuesday and you and Patricia helped me find a few plots. I have another request. I'm looking for the rest of one of the families members for one of the families I found last week. Here are the names and approximate date of birth and death (if I have them). I really appreciate your help.

I remember your 3 person per request rule, so can you just take your time and provide information at your earliest convenience. Since it's an entire family, I'm thinking it' better to have the information together instead of separate requests.

Thanks in advance.

These are children and/or relatives of William and Margaret O'Neill (buried 1.23.5-6) and another child (Eddy) is buried to immediate right of them.

Unknown baby O'Neil child unknown 1860's shortly after birth up to a few years

RE: William O'Neill grave photo
I just started back tracking my family in January and I've found so much. I initially started about 13 yrs ago and was getting so much resistance from my family and someone else gave me information (good) that I needed to confirm (lots of work) that I stopped researching. However, in just a few months I'm finding so much. Someone listed a relative of mine here and it really helped so now I'm returning the favor. I wish there was a way to add a video to the site. There an app that I could use to create a Panoramic view for you. I'm new to hanging around graves but the site where your ancestors are located is beautiful. There's a country club and golf course in site, a view of Millionaires' row in Mountain View Cemetery and the ambience is peaceful and beautiful. I'm try to get family member to come back with me. My sister may come.

Before I go back next time I'll look over what you have and work with the Front office ppl at the cemetery. Oooh... another quest *-* lol

Yes, I am loving this. Also, I met another genealogist at the cemetery who is very knowledgeable able it. He has a lot of relatives there. Maybe he can help me. He knows a lot about where they buried that babies who died at that cemetery.

We'll bring you back something.
