Hi there.........I wrote down the street address from the death certificate at the NYC archives. I am assuming it could have been the Bronx because that is where the family lived their whole life. However, that street address does appear in Brooklyn presently. There was not a city listed with the street address on this particular death certificate...(It was from early 1920s). The individual died in the Bronx. I am aware of the upstate New York cemetery, but the address I have does not correspond with this cemetery as it is located on a rural route. If it is currently located on a rural route, I feel strongly that the address may not have changed. 400 E 16th Street seems to be in a city and not a rural area. In addition I am not sure why the family would be buried out in Cuyahoga when all their family immigrated to New York City and resided in Manhattan and the Bronx. I did check what records are available for this cemetery as well, and unless they were buried without a tombstone I could not locate one member of the family. I am really not sure if a cemetery existed by this name at one time or maybe there is some sort of mistake, hence my posting. Maybe it changed names or moved as well.
