Sorry this took a while; but I uploaded the image of the niche that George is supposed to be interred in.

Oh wow,

Thank you I would like to see that!
How do you find wills of specific people online?

George T. H. Schad
Hi. I'm not sure you care; but I'm pretty certain the image you have for his niche at the SF Columbarium is not accurate. According to the information available he is located on the 2nd Floor, Sec A, Tier 6 Niche 5. If so, this is not the faceplate for that niche. Unfortunately the one for that niche has no discernible labelling, so maybe you went with an image of other Schads who are interrned in the same Section because the name is readable.

RE: Pullen's
Yes thank you, this is where I am stuck as well. I am not on ancestry but I did just have a dna test done, and all the family I know on my mother's (Pullen) and father's as well are Catholics, but the rumor was that their birth father was Jewish. I am 7% Jewish according to my test, which confirms this, I believe. My theory is that Teresa went to city of S.F. after her parents died and might have met a man whom she had planned to marry. Some people back then would 'get married" but not go to the courthouse right away, usually because of $$. She was well off, her parents in Eden Township, but they died and their were 10 siblings, so she may have been on her own in S.F. He either passed away or left her, we may never know. I wish I had asked more questions of my grandparents, they might have had more clues. My grandfather was Walter's son. He was the only child to Walter and Alma (Short) Pullen, Sr's first wife. My grandfather was in the army and was a national guard lived his whole life in SF. He was quiet, funny, very very clever, was always making/inventing things with his hands, everyone adored him.

Pullen brothers
Hi my name is Sarah, granddaughter of Walter Pullen jr., son of Walter P. Pullen and the nephew of Henry James Pullen. Henry and Walter were born only a year apart in 1891 and 1892, but Theresa Wrede, their mother, did not marry George Pullen until 1904, who adopted them legally. I have no way of finding out their real father's name, but have heard stories that he was Jewish of Eastern Europe ancestry. Because the boys were born in San Francisco, their birth certs were lost in the 1906 quake and fire. But I did find a document re the marriage certificate in 1904,to George, but not one earlier for Theresa and her first husband (?) he is a mystery. Any info would be great. Maybe Henry's side of the family knew about his biological father....

Bridget Dillon photo request, Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma, CA
Hi! She was originally buried at Calvary Cemetery in San Francisco. When they took all those graves and re-interred them at Holy Cross, they found no evidence of a casket or bones, so there is no reburial, therefore, there is no plot to photograph. =( They just entered her into the system since she was on the Calvary Cemetery records and they had to record something.

I left your photo request active so you could see that first - then you may want to "cancel" the photo request since there's no plot to go to.

However, I did see that she was 75 years old when she died, and she was the widow of Dennis Dillon. Someone with the name R. Dillon originally bought the plot on October 12, 1876. Hope that might help you a bit. Sorry there isn't anything better to tell you.

Yep, graves 2-3-4 are in the same burial spot; sometimes 1-5 or more.

Mary & Edward Reilly
I either couldn't pinpoint their shared site because (1) there's no marker or (2) they may be interred under a headstone with another name such as O'Connor or Sullivan. Do the latter name(s)sound plausible?

No problem :) With so many people creating memorials at the same time, with so many variations of given names, maiden names, surnames, well, it just happens to all of us! Thanks for being so receptive :)

Hi Martha,

Okay, the photo came out better today and I put it on both memorial pages for you.

RE: Edward George McCarthy
Hi Martha,

I totally took a bad photo of Edward's plaque today. I'm going back tomorrow or Friday to retake it. I didn't have my glasses with me and the stone reflected the sun making it illegible. Don't you worry; I will take another and post it! I want to do right by him.
