NY cemeteries 1905 #usa #general

I think I have found a cousin that died as a baby (Lillie Shapiro) in Manhattan, NY 1905.  On FamilySearch, I found 2 death items with burial dates 2 weeks apart AND different cemeteries. Parents names are similar – Isack/Isadore and Ida Eisenberg (todays spelling)

One cemetery is Washington with burial August 28, 1905 and the other cemetery is Mt. Zion with burial September 13, 1905

I was not able to find either cemetery online today.   Are they still in existence? 

Any suggestions, how might I prove which cemetery and date this baby/child died and was buried?

Thank you for any help and suggestions you can give me.

Mt. Zion is online (http://www.mountzioncemetery.com/search.asp?type=interment ).  

Washington Cemetery is represented on FindAGrave (https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/66651 ), although only about 15% of the Washington burials are covered.  There is contact information listed for the Washington Cemetery office.

Both cemeteries are still in existence.
Mount Zion has an online search engine
you can use.  Washington Cemetery you
can call.

Per the extract of her death record on FamilySearch, the baby who died
on 28 Aug. 1905 was the daughter of Sam Shapiro and Ida Cohn. The
child who died on 13 Sept. 1905 had the parents you're looking for --
Isy Shapiro and Ida Isenberg. She's buried at Mount Zion Cemetery,
which, as others have written, still exists and has an online
database. It lists "Lilly Schapiro," who is buried on the grounds of
the Chebra Gemilis Chasodim Anshe Motele -- a society formed by
immigrants from what's now Motol, Belarus.

Trudy,

You note that "was not able to find either cemetery online today. Are
they still in existence?" Yes, both cemeteries are in existence and are
active. You can contact each:

Washington Cemetery
5400 Bay Pkwy
Brooklyn, NY 11230
Phone: (718) 377-8690

Mount Zion Cemetery
59-63 54th Ave
Maspeth, NY 11378
Phone: (718) 335-2500

Also, it is possible that these are two different families, or, that
there was a change in the burial which resulted in a second death cert
being filed. What are the signature dates on each?

-Stay safe
