Didn't expect such a response to my query of last evening. I have
talked to the funeral home that buried the lot owner in 1891. They are
still in business with virtually the same name. Their records do not
say much about the burial. And there is no death certificate, I paid
$11 to find that one out. And no headstones, don't know why. The lot
owner had 10 or 11 children, some of whom died at a very young age. So
I don't find it strange that he bought the two lots, but why no stones?
Perhaps they could not afford it. There are markers at the corners of
the lots. And the rest of the cemetery seems to have stones.
On the body storage line, I have looked at quite a few records from
Albany Rural Cemetery, and have noticed that the first two weeks of May
were heavy with burials for those who passed on during the winter.
There are a number of masuleums (spelled it wrong, didn't I?) at Albany
Rural. I also know of some small, rural cemeteries in New York which do
not bury during the winter even today.
Thanks for the help.
