Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a criminal law paralegal and researcher by profession.

I can do photos for Calvary Cemetary here in Long Island City, Greenpoint Avenue (Calvary 1 or Old Calvary), also known as the St. Calixtus Division. It is difficult for me to do Calvary 2, 3 or 4.

Calvary uses locations by Section, Range or Avenue, Plot and Grave. All 4 pieces of information must appear on the memorial in the section for grave location when you make a photo request so that it appears on the photo request as well. Please call, with name and date of death, 718-786-8000, to obtain the information which MUST be in the section of the memorial.

Any pictures I take contain no restrictions on their usage. You may copy and use my photos without my express permission, or share them. I do appreciate credit for the photos if used on another site, though it is not necessary to contact me. I do put up photos of the correct Calvary 1 entrance; you can delete those if you do not want them included. This applies to Calvary in New York. The stock photo is not of the Old Calvary entrance.

If I add a photo that you want taken down, if you cannot remove it, I will remove it for you. Feel free to e-mail me; it's faster as it will go to my phone.

Note: I am back to taking photos again.

Denis/Dennis Coppers photo request
Thank you for your message regarding Dennis Coppers] photography request. I sent an SAC for the death date of 14 August 1879, but the memorial owner apparently hasn't approved it yet. Since there was a court battle over whether he would be allowed to be buried there, I don't know the date of burial. The newspaper article announcing the judge's decision is dated 27 November 1879:

"The Right to a Cemetery Lot.

Dennis Coppers died at Hoboken, N. J., August 14th, and was refused burial in Calvary Cemetery, (Catholic) L. I., by Vicar General Quinn, because he was a member of the Masonic order. He owned a lot there and his wife and child were there buried. Application was made to the Court and Justice Westbrook at New York rendered a decision that the body must be interred there, and has enjoined the Cemetery authorities from removing it."

The Advertiser,
Warwick, Orange, New York,
Thursday 27 November 1879,
Page 2, column 4.

Thank you, J

On the grave write up for Sarah, you list the dates of the children. Where did you get that listing? I'm wondering, because I've found different dates for the children and I want to make sure the correct listing is used. Please help me.

Thank you in advance for reading this note and answering, I know your time is valuable.

Hi Barbara,

Thanks so much for the info on Barbary! I have had major computer problems and am just now finding your message. I am going to delete my memorial and we will go with yours. I only had info that someone else supplied me with but it looks as though yours is much more reliable!
