About seven years ago I was fortunate to visit the grave of my ggf Solomon
Gurewitz in the Anshe Borisow (Borisov) section of Montefiore Cemetery in
Queens. In response to my request they had sent me a copy of the index card
or record that had the date of death and exact location in the cemetery. The
given name "Thomas" crossed out and Solomon penciled in and wrote in
response to my question that there was a marker on the grave.

I would not hesitate to send another request with the death certificate and
a polite note with the alternate names.
