I am lookinh into it; my daughter was buried yesterday, not had much time; do you mind if I transfer her to you. Several sites I created were not my relatives, I noticed they did not have a site, so I created them to help others find them. Thank you for calling my attention to it. June

Thank you so much for you photo of the Center Tomb at NY Marble. The management there has been wonderful to work with in the past. I am sure they were most appreciative of your work.

Thank-you for the photograph of the memorial monument for John Bloodgood - I know that this could not have been an easy thing to obtain. It means a lot to the family the time and effort you went to getting into the Marble Cemetery.

New York City Marble Cemetery open days in 2014
Hi Brookewy,

The four Dick siblings Hide Dick, Anna Gertrude Dick, Mary Dick, & William Thompson Dick were all interred in Vault #7 according to the cemetery website which I had never consulted previously. I don't know if the cemetery has more detailed paperwork on the Dicks. A person wrote to me on F a G saying that there are no gravestones in NYCMC, but I can only imagine there must be some type of plaques or name tags.

On the NYC Marble Cemetery website, the following schedule is provided for open free admission to the cemetery:

Sun May 4th [in 2-1/2 weeks!]
11:00 am to 5:00 pm Spring Open Day Open to the public, free admission. Historical displays will be available for visitors to learn more of the history of the Cemetery and those interred here.

Sat Jun 14th; Sun Jul 13th; Sat Aug 9th; & Sun Sep 14th. 11:00 am to 5:00 pm Neighborhood Open Days Open to the public, free admission
Summer Second Weekends. An opportunity for our friends and neighbors to enjoy our peaceful green space.

Sat & Sun Oct 11th & 12th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Fall Open Weekend Open to the public, free admission. Historical displays will be available for visitors to learn more of the history of the Cemetery and those interred here.
Part of openhousenewyork.

I would love to go, but am caring for my bedridden mother, so any trip will be sometime way in the future.

If you are able to go there on Sunday 4 May or any of the other open days, I would love to hear your impressions and if it is possible to photograph anything related to burials in Vault #7.

Hello, I am gratified to see that you have claimed the photo request for the grave of William Thomas Dick (1847-1874). If possible, when you are in the NYC Marble Cemetery to take the photo, could you look to see the graves of his siblings: Anna Gertrude Dick (3 Jun 1862-19 Dec 1863); Mary Dick d. Feb 1866; and Hide Dick d Feb 1845 and if not too much extra trouble might you take a photo of each of their graves as well?
Thank you so much.
