The Headstone for Rosie Levin nee Weiss

I haven’t given up and have been continuing to try and discover the location of the cemetery for the gravestone photo of Miriam Weiss nee Schwartz, mother of Polly, Phillip and Rosie Weiss. I go in spurts, researching, making calls, checking cemeteries and then putting the project aside before starting again.

My connection to the Weiss family is distant; through marriage. Miriam was the mother-in-law of my 2nd great uncle Marks Hyamovitch.

While working on this project I went back to her daughter Rosie, who we believe is in the photograph above. Both Rosie and her husband William Levin are buried in Mt. Hebron Cemetery, Flushing Queens. On ‘Find A Grave’ a photo of Williams headstone is shown but not for Rosie.

It was easy to obtain a photo of Rosie’s ┬áheadstone using Mt Hebron’s ‘request photo pay now’ button. 3 days later and the photo below was in my email.
