JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Oceanview Cemetery in NY ??? #general


Joan Engel <jengel@...>
 

Samuel POMERANTZ, my gg uncle, was born in Kamenets-Litovsk in 1875 and died
on the Lower East side (Grand Street) in NYC in 1913. His death certificate
seems to indicate he was buried in Oceanview Cemetery (section R) - but it
is hard to read. I have located an address for an Oceanview Cemetery in
Staten Island but was surprised to find his family buried him on Staten
Island.

Could I have the name of the cemetery wrong? --- Is there another cemetery
with a similar name somewhere else? --- Would they have taken the body over
on a ferry? --- Is anyone familiar with this cemetery or with any burial
societies that buried people there? (The death certificate indicates the
undertaker was A. Livingston at 248 Grand Street.)

I have sent the Oceanview Cemetery in Staten Island a letter requesting
information but have not gotten any response. I am planning to visit the
cemetery but any information about it prior to my visit or any suggestions
for getting information >from them will be appreciated!
