Rooney Gravesite Records Information

Hello All:

It was suggested that a fundraiser be started in the hopes of obtaining the grave holding and internment records of the people who are buried along with Catherine Rooney, who was Great Grandpa James Rooney's third wife and stepmother to Poppy and his brother Joseph. Catherine died in 1924 and is buried in Calvary Cemetery in Woodside, Queens New York. There are 5 burials in that particular grave holding, however the fee to obtain those records is $160 and the hope is that Great Grandpa James would be one of those interred with Catherine. It would also be very interesting to discover who the others are as well. Perhaps Poppy?

There is also a grave holding with three individuals, one of who is Jennie Sheeren, Poppy's mother and our Great Grandmother. The fee to find out who else is interred with Great Grandma Jennie would be $140. It would be great if we could find who else is buried along Jennie.

I have included a Photo of the letter sent from Calvary addressing our inquiries with the pertinent information.

If anybody is as curious as some of us are to find out this information please feel free to contribute what you can so that we can hopefully solve some long standing Rooney mysteries.
