: : I just received the page of the death of my gr-grandmother in 1871 in San Francisco - it lists her burial place and it looks like O.F. or T.F. - does anyone know what that means?
: : Was that a cemetery that was moved after the 1906 Earthquake?
: : Thanks for any help.
: : Barbara

--- This is an older request, but - just in case it's helpful - O.F. probably means Odd Fellows. Here are some helpful links as to where this was and how history played out:

I have found records for many of my family members who originally were buried at Laurel Hill (transferred to Cypress Lawn, Colma) and Calvary (transferred to Holy Cross, Colma), but have not been able to find information for everyone. Information in the fourth piece says those interred at Odd Fellows "all mainly (were) moved to Greelawn Memorial Park at 1100 El Camino Real, Colma, CA 94014, San Mateo County. (650) 755-7622.

Best wishes in your search.
