O'Neill Headstones


 

St. John's Cemetery
Old Roman Catholic Cemetery

Plattsburgh, New York

John & Margaret O'Neill
Headstone Inscription
This stone marks the approximate burial location of Owen O'Neil and his parents, John and Margaret in Plattsburgh, New York. This stone was made in 1998 after my cousin, Jean Dunbabin, discovered that the original cemetery headstones had been destroyed. Photos

 

Margaret O'Neill Headstone

Margaret's original stone was incorporated into the new stone as can be seen from the rear view: Below is the way it was found. Note the bottom was broken off and could not be found. Cemetery records show the Inscription for Margaret and John O'Neil..
