thank you
For trying to get the picture of Nathan Cohen's burial. I just received your message. I didn't realize my messaging was turned off. My apologies for the late reply.

RE: Beth Olam
Thanks for the heads up on Beth Olam. We couldn't make it either since we're out of town - as always seems to be the case when it's open. I'm crossing my fingers we'll be in town for the spring opening and that the weather will cooperate again next year! Take care.

RE: Beth Olam
Hi! Hope you didn't hurt yourself falling. This was the first time I've been to a cemetery where I haven't either tripped or almost tripped. I'm shocked I didn't end up swimming in some of those puddles.

So far, I haven't come across a Nathan Cohen, however, I haven't yet tried to tweak the almost unreadable stones that weren't right near where Sophia Friedlander was supposed to be buried to see if anything can be made out. I'll let you know if I'm successful.

Do you know if the records Clover Hill has include date of death and age at the time of death? I have several where the name can't be made out but the date of death and age can be made out.

Thanks very much for your help on Sunday! Sorry if I held you guys up - I didn't realize what time it was until we left. By that time, I had a dead camera battery and over 1000 pictures that I'm still trying to go through.

I still can't believe the weather turned out so well - it started raining on us as again as soon as we got on 94!

Thanks again to you and your husband and hope you guys have a great week.

Nathan Cohen, Beth Olem Cemetery
Thank you for trying to help. My information stems from this website. There are 3 entries for d. 1910, all named Nathan Cohen, Beth Olem Cemetery.

Cohen, Nathan 41077719
b. unknown d. Jan. 5, 1910

Cohen, Nathan 41077734
b. unknown d. Jun. 15, 1910

Cohen, Nathan 41077727
b. unknown d. Mar. 15, 1910

I don't actually know which one is the one I want and was hoping to figure it out when I saw the head stones. (I'm hoping for more information from the Hebrew or Yiddish which is likely to be on the stone.)

Thank you, again, for trying to fulfill my request.
