Early American SIG #USA Michael SANDMAN, Long Island, NY > Middletown, NY Asylum #usa
Michael SANDMAN, born in Prussia around 1820, came to
the United States about 1850. He had a clothing store
in Glen Cove, Long Island, NY. (Town of Oyster Bay,
first in Queens County, then in Nassau County)
Abstracted >from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:
10/14/1890 p.1 M. Sandman, having been pronounced
insane, will be taken to the state hospital at
12/21/1890 p.14 Michael Sandman, Glen Cove, died in
the asylum at Middleton, October last leaving estate
valued at $10,000. First wife had 3 children Morris,
Henry, Nancy Sandman. Second wife had 5 children, all
living. Left all real estate to widow, children from
first marriage contesting.
My questions are:
1) Where would Michael SANDMAN likely be buried?
Would he be left at the asylum in Middletown, or would
a wealthy man be brought home to be buried on Long Island?
2) Should there be court documents regarding the
contested will somewhere on Long Island? What would
be the most likely location to find them?
Thank you for your help.
