Lindauer family gravesite. Lindauer Family Plot: Grave 8-12, Lot 108, Westminster Area, Cypress Hill Cemetery, 833 Jamaica Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, 11208-1593, USA. This photograph is useful in locating the graves since there are only two tombstones on the plot. There are 14 people buried in the plot which is the size of 5 standard plots. The two stones are for Stanley Marlton Massey (1895-1902) and William Ensko (1851-1889). This photograph is from the back of the tombstones so you can see the large tree in front of the gravesite. It took three trips to the cemetery for the graves to be found. They were finally located on April 23, 1999. The Lindauer line wasn't explored until the location of the death certificate of Jenny Gertrude Freudenberg (1888) in New Jersey which named this cemetery in Brooklyn as the place of burial. The cemetery asked for $50 to look up the names. Posted by Picasa
