RE: Ryan graves
I understand that you have just found your relatives but you also have to remember that Ryan is very common name in a Catholic Irish Cemetery 7 buried in 1869 & 1870. There 147 total John Ryans in Calvary

I am trying to help you but you have to be VERY Specific and accurate. There were 2 John Ryans that died within 2 weeks of each other that were both buried at Calvary. So you have to pay VERY close attention to the plot number. You kept choosing the one in the wrong plot but referencing the one in 11 in your comments.

the one in 11 is 150726481, for which i have posted a picture.

This is the caption----
This is the only stone for Sec 11, lot 257. Is engraved with Mary A Ryan (1930)
First Name Last Name M/F Burial Date Age
Daniel Ryan M Aug 17, 1890 33
John Ryan M Aug 24, 1869 50
Mary Ryan F Sep 13, 1874 57
Mary A Ryan F Jun 26, 1930 75
Mary A Child Ryan F Oct 31, 1898 3
Thomas Ryan M Jul 29, 1897 28
George Welker M Apr 9, 1874 56

I hope this helps

I found Electa Collin's grave it is only a stone's throw from the cemetery office. it is located behind the receiving/holding building about 50ft. She has no headstone but her neighbors as you are walking from the building will be the Thomases to the left, when you reach myrtle thomas turn around and walk 2 spaces back toward the building there she is. However the cemetery does not show Levi is buried anywhere in the cemetery. Forest Hill is nestled in Valhalla Cemetery. It at one time was an independent cemetery but was taken over by Valhalla as it grew. They kept the name for that section Forest Hill. Their records are all together and they couldn't find Levi in any of the cemetery.

RE: Van Hovgem grave
No problem. Even though I didn't find what you were looking for, it was a great experience to visit this old Dutch cemetery which is now right in the middle of a bustling Caribbean-American neighborhood. There are many headstones there, but sadly tens of them cannot be read. I'm sure your relatives are among them. Good luck. If ever I can be oif additional help, let me know.
