Tombstone Tuesday ~ Santini

Harry Santini's Headstone is in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward. I came across this stone one day when I was visiting and looking for family headstones. The surname Santini is in my daughter's family history, so I took this photo. My daughter's great grandmother was Eva Santini born in California in 1894. Could Harry be Eva's brother? Maybe he was her cousin? Santini isn't a very common name so I tend to think there is a relationship there. I will be looking into this!
