Wilson Hunt
"Is this the 28 year old Wilson Hunter who dies at sea Feb 1859 whose body was taken to Hong Kong? Would he happen to be reinterred here (he was from Brooklyn). I know this is a long shot."

I dug around a little more, so to speak, and there are no "Hunter" burials in that plot, only "Hunt" burials. I can some typo ending up on record, but not that many.

Also in this plot:







Also, the Mausoleum's photo clearly shows HUNT, and the graves in front are Hunt relations.

Maybe your guy was really a Hunt not a Hunter? For any more details, all I can suggest is contacting Green-wood itself.

I hope this is helpful... ~S

Wilson J. Hunt
I would say there is a good chance that Green-Wood Cemetery is a reburial and that it is him. I found him in the 1850 New York Census with parents Thomas and Emelline Hunt, in Brooklyn. There is an Emeline buried there in 1873. I did not find him in Consul General records, but I did find him on the crew list on the "Amaranth" docking in port at Sydney on Sept. 4, 1858. I also found a note in a column on Sydney in the Melbourne "Argus" dated Jan. 6, 1859, "Thirty Chinamen, who have taken their passages by the Amaranth to Hong Kong, have paid duty on nearly 2,000 ounces of gold. - Adelaide, Wednesday." It left on Jan. 13th with 67 Chinese in steerage under Capt. Jones, bound for Hong Kong. I'm thinking that that is the trip that he died on. Since the Amaranth was a freighter based out of New York, the family could have easily arranged for his body to be brought back. If you want to pursue this further, I would suggest the burial detail file on Wilson Hunt at Green-Wood. -Rebecca

"English Cemetery"
That phrase is used to refer to different things in different places, but historically it meant one under the jurisdiction of the Church of England. In a US paper in 1859, I think it was meant as an assurance that he received a Christian burial. The time period of 1859, eliminates the military cemeteries, as they are much more contemporary. The first burial in the Colonial cemetery was 1841, so that one makes sense. It has been well photographed, so have you double checked that he's not already listed? Also, use the search engine with his name and the "At Sea" as the country, to make sure he's not in the system. "At Sea" makes a memorial not show up in general indexing, as if he were a "burial unknown". If he was American, I can cross check the Consul General death records, if you care to share the name. I hope this all helps. -Rebecca

Jane Purdy
Purdy was a very common name during the earlier years around White Plains and Ossining and so I wouldn't be surprised if there are more than one Jane. I did a little checking on but couldn't find anything that linked your Jane to my Jane. Census does show that my Jane was married to a James and did have one daughter whose name was Sophia.

Patton Family Burial Grounds
I've been trying to find my great grandmother Jennie A Patton who married James E Grogan. Jennie's father was Cyrus Patton & her mom was Sarah K ?-Grogan.
Jennie was born June 1867 and died some time between 1900-1910 in Newburgh, NY.
I was hoping to find her or her parents in these grounds.
Also wondering if this is actually part of a cemetery.

Decker twins
It is very unfortunate that the infant rate (as well as the mothers) was so high back then. I guess we are lucky to be born when we were. My grandmother lost several babies..medicine just wasn't the same back then.

Thank you for the addition of the twins.
