Baltimore Cemeteries #usa

Adam Turner

I recently ordered the attached death certificate for John Myerson from 1917 from the Maryland State Archives, and would like to locate the grave of this person so I can eventually get a photo of the stone.

The death certificate gives the cemetery name as "Hebrew Washington Rd."

1. Is my guess that this refers to United Hebrew Cemetery (whose current address is 3901 Washington Boulevard) likely to be correct? (This person's wife was apparently buried in that cemetery in 1926, so it would make sense if he, too, is indeed buried there.) I'm not familiar with the Baltimore area, so I wasn't sure if there are any other candidates for a Jewish cemetery on "Washington Road."

2. Does anyone have recent experiences with contacting this cemetery? Do they tend to be forthcoming with inquiries about plot locations and such?

Look for the phone number of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Baltimore.  Call them or email them and someone should be able to help you.  Good luck!

Thanks to those who responded with suggestions - much appreciated!

As an FYI to other researchers: I spoke to someone today at United Hebrew Cemetery's office who was very friendly and helpful, and who promptly emailed me a cemetery map. It appears that she is actually an employee of the monument company W.S. Tegeler, so my assumption is that W.S. Tegeler also manages the cemetery. 

John Myerson is indeed buried in the same section of the cemetery as his wife Pauline (Aitz Chaim/Old Eden), but (I would guess probably because of the fairly early burial date) their database did not have more specific row/plot information for him.
