I can take pix in these cemeteries in Staten Island: Mount Richmond & Silver Lake Cemeteries (both owned by the Hebrew Free Burial Assoc.) and Baron Hirsch. These cemeteries are all a mess. Baron Hirsch is not that much of a mess as it is gigantic and the graves are usually quite difficult to locate unless you can get me the society name location. In all requests, calling the office first and getting the exact location is your best bet!|

|EmilyAnn Frances May||Sorry you couldn't locate the gravesite...|
Tim, Thank you so very much for trying to locate the gravesite of Fannie Ernst Flashenberg. I'm sorry you were not able to. I gave the plot location as I received it over the phone. Later in the mail I got a map outlining where the plot is. I've sent you an email.
Thank you so much for the photo. I hope you realize all the peace you bring us all when you photo grave loved ones resting place.

Thank you for all the beautiful pictures. I had given up hope of ever getting them. Most of my postings have the society name, plot and gate numbers. I am not sure what you mean by a "wall" map.
|Roy Hunter||Silver Lake Cemetery|
I would like to get a picture of the grave
of Frank Carmadella who is buried in the
Silver Lake Cemetery , Staten Island .
|terri||Sailors Snug Harbor Cemetery|
Thank you for all that you do for Find A Grave; my inquiry is in regards to the Sailor's Snug Harbor Cemetery; I finally received my Great Grandfather's Death Certificate (Edgar Wilson Barter b. 2 Jan 1872 at Barters Island, Boothbay, Maine and d. 30 Sep 1939 @ Sailor's Snug Harbor Hospital)just yesterday and while I had known about his stay at Sailor's Snug Harbor and subsequent death there (The Staten Island Museum provided his "inmate" number, etc.)his death certificate states that he was buried at "Sailor's Arms Harbor Cemetery, 1783 Richmond Terrace, West New Brighton"; am I correct in assuming that this is the same cemetery aforementioned? It also appears from your photos that most of the headstones are missing; were there ever any stones or were they just placed in plots? Thank you so much for your time! Cordially Terri Reynolds

Oh, PS,,here's a link to a picture of one of the numbered marble markers on display at the Noble Maritime Collection at Snug harbor.
The limestone markers I've been documenting there are two to three feet high, average about 13 inches wide and are 1.5 to two inches thick. The photo's I've been taking are property of the Noble Collection, but if I get permission to use any I'll send you some pictures.

From what I understand, the stones from the 1830's or so were removed to make room for more burials...probably they realized they were running out of room so they started putting more than one burial per plot. The stones left on "Monkey Hill" are the only ones with full names, dates, etc, I figure they're the graves of the few inmates that had family and money for a tombstone. The one's in storage that I've been photographing are poor quality limestone, and have only first initial, last name, and age at time of death. (Since Lafayette died in 1933, there's a slim chance his marker is one of these! I'll keep an eye out for L Small age 81) Many are worn and illegible.
Over the years since they used wooden markers, small metal markers, and simple marble blocks, all with numbers not names. The wooden ones are probably all gone, I've never seen any of the metal markers. Snug Harbor has about 350 limestone markers in storage, and six or eight numbered marble blocks. I've heard a rumor that there are some limestone markers elsewhere on the island, apparently when the city took over Snug Harbor they offered the limestone markers to any group that wanted them, saying that otherwise they would go into a dumpster.
Eventually, the Noble Maritime Collection may be able to connect the 'Snugs' records at Fort Schyler with the limestone markers and put some on display, as they have with a few of the numbered marble block markers.
