Hi Jesse -
While you indeed show a Ouleout Cemetery gravestone for both Lewis Wickes Hine and his wife (Sarah Ann Rich), according to his obituary, they were actually cremated and interred at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale NY near where they lived in Dobbs Ferry NY. Upon visiting the cemetery, the burial records show their remains are in the Mausoleum, unit 2 in the Niche Room, alcove 3, column R, niche 9. Their place is on the top row, far left, about 12 feet above the ground. Sadly, because they died poor, their final resting place remains unmarked but the burial records leave no doubt that their remains are at Ferncliff Cemetery.
I'm curious as to why there is the duplicate gravestone in Franklin NY, especially since there are no other Hine members at the Ouleout Cemetery or any connection to the area. Do you disagree?
Thanks for your time,
