SNGF: Longest Gravestone Line

What a fun challenge this week!  I hadn't ever thought to look and determine which was my longest unbroken line of gravestone.  I really didn't think I could get very far, but then I remembered that there were quite a few on Fin-A-Grave.  I ended up being able to go a good ways back on some of my lines.

2. My great-grandmother, Gladys Viola Healey Shinn (1898-1998), Stockton Woodland Mausoleum (Stockton, San Joaquin, CA).  Photo here.

3. My great-great-grandfather, Lauren Everett Healey (1873-1959), Greenlawn Memorial Park (Colma, San Mateo, CA).  No photo online.
