This is what I have gathered from the San Francisco city directories:

In 1913, there was a "Green, Ryan & Donahue" located at 431 Valencia. They were undertakers along with a few others on Valencia. The names of the company came from:

GREEN, Patrick F.
RYAN, John F.

In 1914, GREEN appeared to go off on his own as an undertaker. RYAN and DONOHOE/DONOHUE appeared to take on a different partner, McDONNELL.

"Ryan, McDonnell & Donahue" were last listed at 431 Valencia in 1935.

I couldn't determine if they were bought by someone else or whether they just merely went out of business. I would presume that if they went out of business, they may have just thrown away the records.
