Lost to Sight,
To Memory Dear.

I live across the street from Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York. I spend a lot of time traipsing around in there. It’s beautiful, huge (478 acres), and filled with interesting history. I wander around without any plan or direction whatsoever. When I see an interesting monument, I take a picture of it.

These are some of the things I’ve seen and learned.

  1. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to do this. I am writing a chapter for an edited volume on American Baptist history, my subject is Archibald Maclay, whom you recently did a post on. It was nice to see what his grave monument looked like.

  2. All the stones have stories to tell, not just the famous . Please keep at it! Read all your posts. You are doing a great job. Found your site researching Joseph Quadri’s memorial.

  3. Hello there. I was looking for where to find my great-great uncle’s grave in Greenwood Cemetery, and found his name on your site. His name was Joseph Quadri, and his father, Victor Quadri was a sculptor who carved that headstone for his son. I have a lot of information on it if you would like to know more–including pictures and letters. If you are interested in learning more about Joseph Quadri, just let me know. I’d be happy to talk. I have to say it made me so happy seeing this beautiful piece of my family’s history on your site. I am glad he has not been forgotten.
