Bio Photo There were about 7100 burials in the Eloise Cemetery which was used until 1948 for unclaimed remains. Some remains were sent to the Detroit College of Medicine (later known as Wayne University College of Medicine) and also the University of Michigan. Those seeking death certificates for those who are buried in the Eloise Cemetery for the years 1935-1948 can obtain copies of them from the Burton Historical Collection of the Detroit Public Library for a nominal fee.

RE: Mary Burke
I do not know where she died. I have her widowed in the 1940 census and the Detroit city directories until 1948. I assumed she died in Detroit but I did do not have confirmation.

Her husband, Thomas Burke's mother was Margaret Dwyer not Durfee.

Thank you,
Kevin J O'Brien
