Dora Hines Lansburgh
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1866
Baltimore City
Maryland, USA
Death: Sep. 13, 1949
Massachusetts, USA

Widow of the late original founder (with his brothers James and Gustave) of the Lansburgh & Bro Dept store in Washington, D.C. though he would leave that firm in a few years to start his own store called the Julius Lansburgh Furniture Company.

Originally interred beside her husband in the Abbey Mausoleum which was located near the south gate of the Arlington National cemetery and a few other military installations, the facility ceased operations in the early 1950s. Still, it took nearly 50 years to get to where the deceased could be extracted and placed elsewhere at other burial sites. Her late husband had many relatives and most are buried in 2 cemeteries in Washington, D.C. though this information was apparently not known to the folks who decided where the unclaimed dead would be taken. In the end, Dora also has suffered the indignity of having her middle/maiden name spelled incorrectly (it was 'Hines'). The marker she shares with her late husband doesn't make it clear that she's even there; there are no dates of her birth and death.
