Just because Sarah is buried in Rochester, NY, does not mean that she
died in Rochester. My grandmother, Gussie Rubinstein, is buried in
Queens, NY, but she died in Miami-Dade County, Florida in 1957.
Another Gussie Rubinstein died in Brooklyn around the same time.
Also, don't trust that her name is correct on the death certificate.
It took me 3-1/2 years to find my ggm's grave. Her name is Tillie
Karasik. Her death certificate has her name as Tiba Harasik. The
cemetery records had her listed as Toba Harasik. Her gravestone reads
Tillie Karasik. And there is a Tillie Karasick buried in the same
cemetery. My ggm died in 1926, the other Tillie died in 1927.
You might want to contact the cemetery office and see if they have her
death certificate on file or what info they have for her. Also, if
she is buried in a society section of the cemetery, see if that
society is still in existence and contact them.
Good luck to you in your search.
