Bio and Links
Bio Photo -I give my permission to anyone who wishes to use a photo of a tombstone that I have taken.
-I spend my time doing this only to help other genealogists.
-Let's keep something in mind: We are creating a new database of information for future historians.
-If I have made a mistake, please let me know and I'll correct it.
-I have primarily been working on photographing Old St. Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx for the last few years. I have completed Sections 1 through 11 in this cemetery.
-I only create a memorial if the stone has at least a first and last name or dates. If the stone only says "Smith", I skip it. Also, some stones are too worn to read. So if you are looking for someone in particular, and I did not photograph it, it does not mean that it is not there.
-I just started working on Calvary Cemetery (Woodside, Queens) Section 1W. It is the oldest part of the cemetery. Calvary is the largest cemetery in the United States. It will probably take several months to complete.
-If you want me to transfer a memorial to you, just ask. No interrogations about how you are related.
-I am a member of the German Genealogy Group.

Hi Kevin,

Would you mind checking my grandfathers' stone one more time? I called St. Raymond's again to have his stone raised and this time they called me back to say it had been done. They couldn't take a photo for me. Please don't make any special trips, just the next time you go there. I'm especially curious to know if there are any names on the base stone. I doubt it, but I am curious. Thank you so much.

Michael Coleman

My name is Anna Fraser and I live in Scotland. I was given your name by Rich H who suggested that possibly you might be able to assist with my search for the wife of my grandads first cousin who is buried in St. Raymonds Cemetery, The Bronx.

I have been compiling the family tree but noticed there are very few details of Marie Fanning who was married to Michael Coleman, Fiddler, born 1891 and died 1945.

Dates of her birth vary between 1890 to 1895 but she married in 1917 in New York City. The couple had one child named Mary who appears to have married a Maurice Hannon.

I have managed to obtain her birth and marriage details but can find nothing for her death and would be most grateful if you were able to tell me if there is any headstone with an inscription that tells me when this occurred.

any assistance with this matter would most gratefully appreciated.

I see nothing on the stone after the earlier-mentioned Honora. On my screen it shows up as overexposed.

I'll take your word for it, and I'm pleased you found her family.

Thank you, Kevin

RE: Honora Loretta Quinn (178754386)
Hi. It's a great pic but I think this Honora isn't the person. The stone gives her age as 45 years and Honora Loretta was 19. The stone also says she & Thomas were natives of County Tipperary, Ireland, and multiple sources give Honora Loretta's birthplace as New York City...

Name: Honora L Quinn
Gender: Female
Race: White
Marital Status: Single
Estimated birth year: abt 1860
Birth Place: New York
Age: 19
Death Date: Nov 1879
Cause of Death: Phthisis Pulmonalis
Census Year: 1880
Census Place: New York, New York, New York, USA
LINE: 14

Source: New York State Education Department, Office of Cultural Education; Albany, New York; U.S. Census Mortality Schedules, New York, 1850-1880; Archive Roll Number: M12; Census Year: 1879; Census Place: New York, New York, New York

Thank you!!
I've been trying to locate this headstone for years! This is my mother's family. She will be so happy that I found her grandparents, sister and aunt and uncles.
