I was able to check today and unfortunately there is no record of anyone by that name buried at Rosedale. Based on your last message, perhaps they are at Mt. Hebron?
Hope you find them! Let me know if you have anything else with which you'd like to to help.

I'd be more than happy to check it out for you. I'll let you know as soon as I have confirmation one way or the other!

I made a visit to Lakeview cemetery on Friday -- the sky was overcast and the weather was about 50 degrees -- so perfect for graving. There is no longer a stone for Aner Peet. But, the location (based on the Hale index)is the gap between Polly Beach (the flat broken stone on the left) and the green bush. I added a proximity photo that shows the whole plot.

I think I got the idea that Pembroke and Lakeview are the same from looking at an old map of Bridgeport on historicmapworks.com. Bridgeport 1888, index map and plate 24. It shows a much smaller cemetery almost in the exact location of Avenue A. I noticed from my many visits that this is where all the early burials are. "A History of the Old Town of Stratford and the City Bridgeport" on google books indicates that the cemetery was moved to its current location in 1872. The map shows "The town farm" which is now part of lakeview, if the map is correct. This also explains why some people have been recorded at buried at the town farm -- it may now be Lakeview cemetery. I spoke with someone at the cemetery, but she wasn't too familiar with the history of the cemetery.
I haven't been to Lakeview in a while and i posted all the photos I took -- even if they weren't good quality.
About 1 year ago, I had trouble finding a photo request even though the cemetery told me the exact location. We had to pull out the section scrolls which shows the section and plots in a great level of detail. It turns out that the person i was looking for was in an unmarked individual plot in a 6 person (marked) family plot. I might have to do something similar with Knapp, but that probably won't be until the spring.

Hi -- Just curious about this statement "Originally buried in the Pembroke Burial Grounds, and re-interred in Lakeview Cemetery." Did Lakeview provide this information? Lakeview used to be called Pembroke Cemetery. Looking at a map of Bridgeport, Pembroke street runs right into Lakeview cemetery. I am not sure which came first the cemetery or the road name. The original cemetery was a fraction of the size and then they bought a bunch more land and were renamed lakeview. I am also looking for "the town farm", potters field and trying to find out if the hillside home had a separate cemetery or if all of the these cemeteries are now "lakeview"

Thanks for posting the photo.
Yes, I did know him as an older man.
