My family research started in 1980. I enjoy helping others in their family research.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

John O'Brien
I was looking through the listing of Pelham Cemetery when I noticed two memorials for John O'Brien. It was submitted early in 2009 by someone else, and yours was submitted at the end of that year. Just FYI

RE: Alexander Cohen
Trinity eh? At one time was trying to match up the list of people from a newspaper listing (very basic) at St. John's Cemetery (now James J. Walker Park) with the places they were moved to when the markers, and hopefully the people, were moved before it was "en-parked" or "de-graved". Maybe "destroyed" is just a good enough word.

I found some at Evergreen and some at Green-wood but too many of the names were generic. So not looking for anyone in particular but am still curious as to how many from the St. John's list were removed to Trinity -- I found a couple possibilities.

Gave up on it and moved on, but the project still feels it always will be of course.

Have fun!

RE: Max Strum
I believe they are the same person indicated, but I've deleted my entry.

This would be the Max Strum who is interred with Yetti, age 2, right?

I saw the death index has only two Max Strums but that's not always definitive so I was not quite up to taking the plunge on the dates, but I would agree it looks correct.

Funny about just now getting to photos taken in too! I am unsure how many are on my aux drive, but at least 20,000... Not all are gems worth posting, though. I keep getting side-tracked..!
