Friday's Photo: Julia Harvey Glynn is buried in Old Saint Raymond's Cemetery

Old Saint Raymond's Cemetery - 2012

Julia Harvey Glynn, my great-great-grandmother on my mother's mother's side is buried in the beautiful Old Saint Raymond's Cemetery in the Bronx, New York

Before visiting, I called the cemetery and was told Julia's grave was not marked. This did not suprise me as Julia Harvey Glynn was poor. She died on February 12, 1919  at 380 East 140th Street in the Bronx. This was the home of her daughter, Caroline Alter, a widow.

About 1890

It was written that Julia was a widow; however she had been separated from her husband, Joseph Albert Glynn, since sometime in the late 1870s. They were found living as a family in 1875 and they were living apart in 1880. From 1909 to 1915, Julia, about age 70, was living in the New York City Home for the Aged and Infirm at Blackwell Island. She was described as being in fair physical condition and destitute. 

Julia was buried in section 18, range 95, grave 3.  A space for Julia's grave could not be found. The row her grave was in began next to this paved road. The numbers began at grave 4 and the numbers across the road did not match. I suspect Julia's grave, and a few others, might be under this road in the photo below. 

It was a beautiful day and the cemetery has some interesting markers. Here are a few more photos of the cemetery.
