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  headstone using Mt Hebron’s ‘request photo pay now’ button. 3 days later and the photo below was in my email.

An adoptee who found both her maternal and paternal side 17 years ago, I began digging into my new found families past. The journey has been amazing connecting and reconnecting lost and found generations.

  1. It looks like we have relatives, who are neighbors, at Mt. Hebron. My paternal grandparents and my husband’s parents and paternal grandparents are buried there.

  2. Beautiful portrait! That would drive me crazy not knowing where that headstone was located. For the two headstones are they located together or are they separate in men’s and women’s sections?

  3. Don’t you wish you could just start walking through likely cemeteries and researching the church records yourself to find her place? How nice to have that service and get the headstone picture so quickly for her daughter!

    1. It was a wonderful surprise to get the photo so quickly. I expected a wait of a few weeks. Walking cemeteries and looking at records for anyone would be fun!

I would love to hear from you
