#1: Looking for location of a Cemetery Author: lilbeesLocation: Georgia, USA PostPosted: Tue Jan 08, 2008 12:18 pm
    ----
I recently received a death certificate for a family member. He died in 1924 and was buried at Mt. Olivet Cemetery on it looks like Clarkson Avenue. I don't know if it was New York or New Jersey. He died in Brooklyn, Kings County Hospital, New York. Everything on the record is clear except for that cemetery location. Can anyone help with this.

There was no family information on the certificate and we have been trying to locate his wife who had died earlier. Hopefully they are buried in the same cemetery and maybe next to each other. The certificate does state he was a widower at time of death.

Here's hoping someone can help.

I believe the Clarkson street address given is for the undertaker not the cemetery. I'd call Mount Olivet Cemetery in Maspeth which is in Queens pretty close to Brooklyn.

Well, we at least know where Henry is buried. For an additional $25 They are obtaining more information for me, i.e. owner, dates, other gravesites, etc. Won't know for a week whether or not his wife is near him or just in the cemetery itself.

I located Henry in the Mt. Olivet Queens. So thank you to all for your assist even when it is not necessarily Italian Genealogy.

Proves we are a really diverse site.

I am in Queens, so one day if I am in the area I would go take a picture if you want. Just PM me the grave location, and when I go I will look for you.

Mike
