OLDER THAN THE REST

Though Green-Wood Cemetery was opened for business in 1838, there are occasional stones and memorials scattered around from earlier times.

Sometimes, a family will disinter from one cemetery and relocate in another. The most famed example of this is DeWitt Clinton (1769-1828) who was originally buried in Little Britain, NY but was reinterred in Green-Wood with a monumental statue by Henry Kirke Browne in 1853.
