While doing ancestry work I came across some papers my deceased mother had saved. Among them were several documents linked to a burial plot at Calvary Cemetery in Queens, New York. The purchaser of the plot may be the husband of my grandmother's half sister, but I am not sure. The documents include the certificate of plot purchase dated January 2, 1893; a receipt from an undertaker with the same date with a note on the back indicating 3 old burials (two burials with dates in 1930 and 1939); and a 1955 letter from the Trustees Office to my deceased uncle who apparently had inquired about selling the plot. The letter indicated that burials had been made there so the plot could not be sold. I have all the pertinent info to identify the plot and would love to know who is buried there. I live on the other side of the country and would appreciate suggestions for how to go about this using the information I have to learn more about this probable family member, short of making a trip to New York.
