RE: Santuccio
One of the "rules" of Find A Grave is: Don't try to clean up a headstone ..... you never know what might come off with, in this case, the lichen!
Glad you like 'em!

RE: Timothy Thomas
It was a really cool cemetery. I saw three headstones. Only one readable. The rest of the graves were simple rocks. The cemetery was very overgrown.

Cathy, I took & uploaded crypt photos for Andre and Marie, in addition to Albert's. I also took a photo of a crypt with two names inscribed: Louis & Caroline Mialocq. I can't upload that photo because they don't have memorial pages set up for them.
All 4 crypts were side by side in the H.C. Mausoleum.

McCloskey
Cathy,
Per the Holy Cross data base (sfgenealogy.com), Frank is buried with Annie. If you'd like the photo also uploaded to his memorial page, please send a request for his photo .... this is the Find A Grave protocol to avoid duplication of volunteer effort.

RE: Myhre
No, I don't think so. My husband is the Myhre and I know most of the current family and those names aren't familiar. He descended from Leonard Myhre (his father), Nathan Myhre (his grandfather) and Gilbert Myhre (ggrandfather) who was the first to come over from Norway. I do know that the name Myhre was not Gilbert's actual name. There's a family story that his name was Pederson, but there were so many, he took the name of the farm in Norway when he got here. Who knows what the truth is. Good luck in your search.

You are very welcome. Was surprised we found so many of them, given the circumstances, but were delighted to do so! --H

RE: Annie Flanagan
Cathy,

I couldn't budge that top piece. Besides probably very heavy, it seemed to have been lying there for quite a while and imbedded in the ground. It's easy to think of vandals but a more plausible explanation is that a cemetery mower tractor struck the headstone. Broken stones are not that uncommon from my experience trekking along there.

RE: John Koster
Cathy,
Out of 15 requests, I suspect that it probably averages 3 or so that don't have headstones ... it's not that rare an occurrence. It does, though, take the most time because the site could be just to the right or left of where you're searching ... so you keep looking, take photos of the nearby markers, note where they are, go home and look up where those photos are located (section, row, area, etc.) on sfgenealogy.com and see that maybe the one you're searching for is really under another family name. This latter scenario happens too often .... can drive you batty!
But it's still a good feeling having at least tried!
