Deborah Gedney Brimlow
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1817
Westchester County
New York, USA
Death: Nov. 16, 1895
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA

1840; New York, New York Co., New York: married Thomas Woodhall.

1852; New York, New York Co., New York: married William Brimlow.

1892; Williamsburg (in Brooklyn), Kings Co., New York: appears in the 1892 NY State Census with son Arthur W. Brimlow ("compositor [type setter]"), his wife Ellen F. (Vail) and their daughter Eadith G. Brimlow. However, the census does not give an address for each family and "253 Broadway" appears only once at the top of the page, defining merely the neighborhood for more than 100 names. Thus, it is assumed son Arthur actually lived at 249 Broadway from 1892-1895 at least (he died in 1896) and that Deborah died in his home where she had recently been living. However, Arthur never appears in any Brooklyn directory, and mother Deborah was very itinerant in her late years within this neighborhood, and many directories have her living at 202 Roebling St. (1888), 101 Havemeyer St. (1891). None of these are addresses of other published family members, unless also the addresses of Arthur who mysteriously never appears in print. Perhaps Deborah was the "head of household" for not just herself, but the family of her son Arthur with whom she lived in all these locations. Arthur's brother (Deborah's other son) was incidentally a printer too, thus in a related business. If Arthur worked for (or under) his brother, this would be another reason why Arthur seems never to appear in print in a directory, etc.

16 Nov 1895; Williamsburg (in Brooklyn), Kings Co., New York: died at 249 Broadway, 2nd Floor (single family residence). Deborah (Gedney) Woodhall Brimlow's death certificate No. 19974 cites: widow Deborah Brimlow (mistakenly transcribed as "Brimbow" in Brooklyn Death Index, but Brimlow on original), died age 70 y. (or 76 y. - difficult to decipher), 6 mo., of apoplexy.

19 Nov 1895; Mamaroneck, Westchester Co., NY: buried in Eleazor Gedney Burial Ground, 1205 Mamaroneck Avenue.

Fortunately, Deborah Brimlow's death certificate specifically states for burial, "Mamaroneck," not merely "Westchester" as for so many other Gedney deaths in NYC. The "Mamaroneck" citation presumably refers to the Eleazor Gedney Burial Ground where parents and first husband and first son are buried. Parents and husband/son are not buried together and there would have been no room to be buried with her parents in 1895. So she is likely an unmarked burial (only known definitively) with first husband and first son and neither appears in the Nov. 1925 NYGB Record transcript (original 1923 hand notes in the Gedney Family Manuscript Files, NYPL), nor 2009 Sutherland transcript of this cemetery.

Finally, in all these Eleazor Gedney Burial Ground transcripts, the surname for her first husband is "Woodhall", not "Woodhull". Given her transient late years and loss of children immediatley before/after her death, perhaps there simply was no money or desire to obtain a gravestone for her burial location.
