New York Civil War Soldiers
Buried at Cypress Hills National Cemetery
in Brooklyn, Kings County, NY

This cemetery includes NY soldiers who initially were buried at Portsmouth Grove Cemetery in Rhode Island. All these soldiers were reinterred in the Union Burial Plot in Cypress Hills National Cemetery in Brooklyn, Kings County, NY.

I spot-checked several names from this list on the US Department of Veterans Affairs Gravesite Locator. Some of the names came back "no match", but others were indeed located at Cypress Hills. Cypress Hills was active from 1870 until 1954; since 1954, the Long Island National Cemetery administers Cypress Hills. Here are the contact details:
