Look at my recent article dated 12/13/2015 under "How Far Back does your SF ancestry go?" about my great-great grandfather who was buried in San Francisco's Laurel Hill Cemetery in 1884. In 1940 his and countless other remains were re-interred in Cypress Lawn Cemetery in Colma. When I researched this history, the personnel at Cypress Lawn were quite helpful. Another suggestion: use the "search site" for this website which shows a large number of Laurel Hill articles and photographs.
