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.

OOOOOH… I arrive in NYC Oct 15…. but too late to take your Green-wood cemetery tour…. and I noticed the tombstone of an ancestor mentioned in our family history… Tunis Bergen…. is buried there…. however, I am hoping to discover more interesting tidbits during my visit…..

Hope your tour goes well
