Abstract:

"New York City's Old Calvary Cemetery was established on the north side of Newtown Creek in an area then called Blissville (known today as Woodside); the first burial there was in August 1848. This book contains 5,315 transcriptions of headstones in the cemetery, dating from the mid 19th century to the mid 20th ... More than 90 percent of the headstones cite Irish places of birth ... Information found on the headstones ranges from a person's name to dates and locations of birth, death and marriage, names of relatives, cause of death, military achievements and the occasional motto or quote. The author has done her best to transcribe as much as possible; many stones are worn or sunken. Introductory pages include a brief history of the cemetery, as well as a map and bird's eye view photograph of it. Other photos of cemetery sites are found thoughout the text. An everyname index makes finding people easy"--Bk cover.
