My third great grandmother is suppose to be buried in this cemetery (burial ground) but I can't find it anywhere...I'm guessing the transcriber thought everyone would understand her shorthand but I've tried looking this up about 15 different ways and I'm coming up with nothing.
The record comes from Family Search for May Pringle:
The Whole Record...but I only want to know where the burial location is:
I wonder if the 'Y' was supposed to be NY. There is a St Patrick Cemetery, Bay Shore, NY (it shows up as St Patrick on Internment, Bay Shore on FAG)
Bay Shore Cemetery is only 44% photographed
Have you tried...Bayview Cemetery, previously called Greenville Cemetery, is located in Jersey City, New Jersey. It merged with New York Bay Cemetery and is now known as Bayview – New York Bay Cemetery.
I dont know the area....from hawaii...but just tryin' to help
3rd one from the bottom:
I have a few thoughts...
Since this is a transcription, can we know for 100% certainty the original record states "St. Y. Cemetery"?? How difficult would it be to view the original?
Since the burial occurred in 1869 in arguably the most evolving piece of geography on the planet, what are the odds said cemetery is still where it was? Reasonably, in the name of progress, the remains may have been moved and reinterred somewhere else; however the less palatable possibility is that it may have been lost and covered over.
I found a very lovely blog about New York Cemeteries. It may be worth an email to the lady who writes it for her opinion.
Update: Heard back from the Metropolitan Cemetery Association and they directed me to Green-Wood Cemetery so I sent my query there. Hopefully an answer will be forthcoming soon.
Update 2: Heard back already, sent him the information he requested, now we wait.
