Sylvan Grove Cemetery, Vosburgh Leng Davis

This is a transcription of the VLD grave stone study that was done in 1922-23'ish, whereas, the historians recorded existing grave stones in Sylvan Cemetery that they could see and read. There are many notations of obvious graves with no grave stones. Other notations indicate grave stones that are unreadable. This is not a complete list of all burials. The complete list did not survive. Grave stones after 1922-23 are not included in this transcription. In 2011, with funding that was supplied by the S.I. Borough President, James Molinaro, FACSI along with monument restoration expert Joseph D'Armetta found, uprighted, recorded and photographed all existing graves stones found in 2011. The complete package of VLD original transcriptions and the updated 2011 photographs have been donated to the S.I. Museum (718-727-1135, Cara Dellatte, Archivist) for easy access and research. The following list was transcribed by Lynn Rogers, Executive Director of the Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries. This list should be used for research purposes only. Obtaining a death certificate is advised.

Lynn Rogers has typed the data and made it available free for all. Please see the FACSI website at FACSI for more information about this worthwhile organization. Many thanks to Lynn for her generosity!

Holly Tooker has taken over maintenance of most of the graves on the FindAGrave Sylvan page. She has submitted corrections to the VLD list. Thank you, Holly!

It's always best to go back to the original - the cemetery. You may also borrow VLD from the FHL; it's film 17902 and/or 514657.


There are a few times that a girl is listed as 'son of' - we are leaving these as transcribed.
