Borchardt Wolf, Bernhard Mausoleun, Path A
thank you tremendously for the work you are doing in this cemetery.
Finally we have found the mausoleum for my husband’s g-grandparents. According to your records they are referred to as:
Plot: Borchardt Wolf, Bernhard Mausoleum, Path A.

I find the records for Minnie Wolff, Adolph Wolff, Simon Borchardt, johanna Borchardt and am thrilled
Is there anyway to find out if there are other individuals interred in this mausoleum, or if applicable the area around the structure.
Are there any documents related to this mausoleum that list any other family members, either interred, or ‘responsible parties’.
Please let me know if there are any charges for this information

P.S. Mary L Kenny gravestone
Oops - mistakenly put the wrong maiden name into my thank you. Mary's maiden name was Mary Louise Stevens.

Photos for Mary L. Kenny & daughter
Thank you so very much for posting the photos of the gravestone of Mary Louise (Gould) Kenny. I didn't know that her daughter Edith was memorialized on the same stone, and it provides information I had been unable to find: Edith's birthdate.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to take and post these photos!

RE: Simon Bergmann 174647580
Simon Bergmann WAS a soldier and a photo of his grave does exist. However, I do not own the copyright and cannot publish it. Seeäber_1904.html

This was my source for several memorials on Find a Grave.

Baron Hirsch, Staten Island, NY

It appears that you have added MANY duplicate memorials in this cemetery - apparently working from an index list, and not checking if a memorial already exists. The memorials you've added in most cases are incomplete. Please remove your duplicate memorials and if you have photos or plot information, please do an edit request on the original memorials to have the information added.

Thank you very much.
