Does anyone know if there are records available for Sacred Heart Cemetery? My great grandmother died in Allentown State Hospital in January of 1919 and it is listed on her death certificate that she was buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. When I called there they said they didn't show her, but some graves had question marks on them. I've tried to get more info to see who owned the unmarked graves etc and have been unable to get an answer. Since she was insane when she died, I believe she was put into an unmarked grave on purpose. Please help me find her. Her name is Mary Smith. Her real name was Mary Zygmunt Zavada but her husband changed his name to Smith after immigrating. Mary was Polish, but was born in Slovakia. She was born sometime between 1867 and 1877. It states 1867 on her death certificate, but according to all her childrens birth records, it was 1877. Thank you.
