Listing of persons interred in New York City's Marble Cemetery.

Description

The oldest extant non-sectarian cemetery in New York City, the Marble Cemetery was designed in 1830 with solid marble vaults built completely underground. This database includes the names of all 2,060 persons buried there. All the families that purchased vaults in the cemetery were important to the dynamic commercial, social, and cultural life of New York in the early nineteenth century. Each record provides the decedent's name, vault number, and burial date. After 1840, at least a fourth of all burials were removed to the newly popular rural cemeteries such as Green-Wood. All known removals and re-interments are noted in the "Comment" field, though there may be more that the Cemetery failed to record. For researchers of well-to-do New York City ancestors, this can be a helpful source of information.

Extended Description

The information in this database is from one of two Marble Cemeteries located in New York City. The New York City Marble Cemetery, located around the corner, is not connected in any way with the cemetery referenced in this collection.

An additional 340 entries for maiden names were added and are marked with an asterisk *. Years of birth are derived from age at death or from secondary sources (b = born; c = born circa; bp = baptized). For interment listings arranged by vault, see http://www.marblecemetery.org.

For a more complete history, see the Cemetery's website. Basic identifying information, such as parents' names, spouses' names, dates of birth and marriage, and occupations, is being collected by the Cemetery. Much of it was published in 1999.
