RE: McDermott / Montefiore
Thanks for the great story. It certainly ranks right up there with the most interesting life history's that I've heard.

As a way of "repaying" for the sharing of the story, I've uploaded the photos of Louis and Irene Toretch. I don't know if they were connected to your family or not, but it's there if you need it.

RE: McDermott / Montefiore
It was my pleasure. The weather was April-like Philly yesterday, and I knew that I was going to take a couple of photos at Montefiore.

Frankly, your request was by far the most interesting of the 25. Mary is the one and only McDermott in Montefiore. In fact, out of over 50,000 burials, only 17 people in Montefiore carry the "Mc" prefix on their surname. (but I guess that's to be expected in a Jewish cemetery!)

RE: Mount Vernon Cemetery
Hi John- I'm sorry the cemetery map I posted is the only one I could find. If I recall correctly, you can get some pretty clear views of the whole cemetery on Google maps / Google earth. Hope that helps!

RE: Cox Markers at Fernwood
Hi, we are glad we were able to help confirm that there is no stone at the Cox grave.
We have found the office staff at Fernwood very warm and helpful when we are trying to find our family graves. They did tell us that when stone fall over that they do bury the stone where they lay. Surely it does make it much easier for the crew to mow the grass. But we have seen that Fernwood will happily level any markers that the family asks them too if it is a job that they can handle simply. They send a crew member out into the field with a backhoe and some concrete blocks that they will use to shin the markers. We will be able to see the results of this the next time that we visit Evie's great-granfathers grave.

All The Best,
Rich & Evie

RE: Harding Gravesite - Mt. Hope Cemetery
I will make a special trip for you
since I'm not filling any more request at
Mt Hope.
I don't need that office manager giving
us all his attitude..
After this heat wave goes thru, I will
run over. At least you know it was one
of yours, the others probably don't know at
all. Not Far from the Vet Monument.

RE: Harding Gravesite - Mt. Hope Cemetery
I would not give them money at all. That is
the monument company you bought the stone from.
they have to fix it. all Mt Hope will do is
call the monument place near by and have them fix it. I just wanted you to know if one of them was your family. care is grass cutting not when the die falls off the base. glue went bad. I worked and a monument place/florist for years.

During the summer I will take a ride for u again. the office manager there is a pain in the Aster.. John.. you have to talk to someone over him. I had to send a letter in about him. Miserable person and should be retired. I'm a senior too but he needs a vacation badly.

per your listing and office..Sect 93
now there is a problem..
there is 2 dies down..meaning tops
could be one of them.. or unmarked where I
added the flag..
if this is family.. I would raise the roof
on those dies down.. if you call them
they could tell you if they have a stone.
if not then it will be the unmarked grave with the flag OK. number is 914-478-1855
Good Luck Photos have been added with note

RE: Henry Ohme Plot at Evergreen
I agree that it is sad to find so many unmarked graves. Sometimes I wonder if the family would want photos of an unmarked grave to be posted on a memorial page, but I leave it to the people requesting the photos to decide after I've posted the photos. I would take them down if they wanted me to.

RE: Henry Ohme at Evergreen Cemetery
Thanks for the new description. It pretty much pinpoints the location based on Evergreen's current map. You couldn't have know that that info was obsolete. I do only because I've been there quite a few times and am familiar with the layout.

I don't understand why Evergreen just passes the old location information on to people who want to visit the graves. It's bad enough that they don't mark all of the current sections but there is nothing anywhere on the site that refers to maps. You would still have to go into the office for a translation.

Henry Ohme at Evergreen Cemetery
Evergreen's confirmation of the location of Henry Ohme's grave is not helpful and, frankly, they should know it too. There is no "Section 11" anywhere in the cemetery. All sections are listed by a single letter, letter with number or by a name plus a number. Examples are Section M, Section B-3 and Lawn Plot 3 ,etc. The highest named section is Lawn Crest 8.

Map numbers refer to particular areas of the cemetery, but these map areas sometimes encompass only portions of a single section and sometimes more than one section. It's as if they mapped out the cemetery into a manageable number maps even though they had more sections than there are maps.

Can you call and ask which current sections "Section 11, Map 5" covers and approximately where lot 38 is in that section? For example, "in Lawn Plot 3 across from Section W" or "in Section B-3 near Park View 2."
