Bio and Links
Bio Photo To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain perpetually a child. For what is the worth of a human life unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?

Generations Past

Author: Shannon Fahine

Days fly by quickly
and children move on.
Before we know it
the "old times" are gone.
But as we look back
at generations gone by,
We, reflect on the memories
that serve as a tie.
Binding us together
With future and past;
and building a story
that forever will last.

I enjoy tracing my family tree and finding new links to my family chain.

McNally's at Oakwood Follow-Up
Hi! Please create photo requests for the following people and also create the memorial if needed. I will then post the photos I took yesterday.

Thomas McNally: 1826 - 1898
Mary McNally: 1833 - 1914

Ann J. McNally: 1854 - 1868
Henry McNally: 1863 - 1868
Maggie McNally: 1870 - 1871
Edward McNally: 1874 (there were not two years shown)
John McNally: 1868 - 1906

I traced the back of the monument and was able to see the dates shown above. Even after tracing the information some dates were still very hard to read. I wrote down what it looked like, but your information may be more accurate.

McNally's at Oakwood Cemetery
Hi! I posted one additional high resolution photo for John McNally As of now, I do not believe the large memorial is for him. It appears to be for Thomas and Mary McNally. The star marker also appears is a Civil War marker for Thomas. There are hundreds of these in this cemetery (which all seem to be replacements for the originals).

There is nothing on the sides of this monument. There is unreadable writing on the back. A close up photo will not help you. The only way to read this information is going to be to trace it because of how faded it is now.

Each time I go out to a cemetery I usually have a goal in mind. Yesterday my goal was to clear up the majority of open photo requests at this cemetery, so I did not make any tracings. I will go back, probably in the next month and make a tracing as I have other photos to take in the area.

Meanwhile, if you create memorials for Thomas and Mary I will add the additional photos I took for them. Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to this information.

Please call 650-755-0580 and get the grave location and add to the memorial so that we can get you some photos.

Or, contact the cemetery office via email in order to obtain the grave location.
http://www.cypresslawn.com/_mgxroot/page_10764.php

Please post to the memorial or Send a Correction to the memorial owner
so that it can be added.
Once you have done this then it will be an easy matter for us to go out and get your request fulfilled.

James Newman Mt. View
Hi Mary
I am about to post photos for James Newman's tombstone. When I saw it I noticed there were 4 other names on the stone and not on Find A Grave. I made memorials for them and also noticed Carrie (Smith) and a Herbert Smith next to her I also posted his photo I think he might be her brother as the ages are close and he was only 22.
Hope you find it helpful.

Toni Parker Sanders ~ Alexandria Memorial Gardens
You are very welcome, Ms. Mary. Happy to assist. I have learned along the way to observe surrounding burials as there is often family nearby.

Should you happen to have other "missing" Parker family members from the area, I would advise not to discount that they may be at AMG. The 2600+ listed on Find is a far fewer number than the 10-12,000 actually buried there.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
Sheila

Parker ~ Alexandria Memorial Gardens
Hello Ms. Mary,

I am sure you will be receiving notices that I have posted photos w/captions for both Faron (4 photos) and Francis Dale (2 photos), which I am in the process of doing now.

I did wish to mention that when I was at the cemetery, I noticed another nearby Parker burial and photographed that stone also. This would be for Toni Parker-Sanders (3 photos), who is Faron's sister and Francis' daughter.

I am not very good at it, but I am adding captions concerning location. Hope you find the info useful.
