Trinity Church Cemetery consists of three separate burial grounds associated with Trinity Church in New York City. The first was established in the Churchyard located at 74 Trinity Place at Wall Street and Broadway. In 1842, the church, running out of space in its churchyard, established Trinity Church Cemetery and Mausoleum in Upper Manhattan between Broadway and Riverside Drive, at the Chapel of the Intercession (now The Church of the Intercession, New York), formerly the location of John James Audubon‘s estate. A third burial place is the Churchyard of St. Paul’s Chapel.

A no longer extant Trinity Church Cemetery was the Old Saint John’s Burying Ground for St. John’s Chapel. This location is bounded by Hudson, Leroy and Clarkson Streets near Hudson Square. It was in use from 1806–52 with over 10,000 burials, mostly poor and young. In 1897, it was turned into St. John’s Park, with most of the burials left in place. The park was later renamed Hudson Park, and is now James J. Walker Park.

The burial grounds have been the final resting place for many historic figures since the Churchyard cemetery opened in 1697. A non-denominational cemetery, it is listed in the United States National Register of Historic Places and is the only remaining active cemetery in Manhattan. There are two bronze plaques at the Church of the Intercession cemetery commemorating the Battle of Fort Washington, which included some of the fiercest fighting of the Revolutionary War.

Trinity Church Cemetery, along with Broadway, marks the center of the Heritage Rose District of NYC

My Maternal Third Great Grandmother, Mary Ann Hammell, English & Irish

Newfield Covered Bridge, Newfield, New York USA, photo by Jon Reis

Birth: 1817 Newfield, Tompkins County, New York, USA

Death: Mar. 7, 1884 Winona, Winona County, Minnesota, USA 

Daughter of Eli Hammell of New York, the Hammell’s emigrated from Scotland in the 1700’s, and Ellen Hammell of Ireland emigrated before 1815 (she was Irish but I have no record of her maiden name).

Maria Ann “Mary” Hammell married Abraham Linderman on 26 November 1835 in Newfield Twp, Tompkins County, New York.

Canyon Bridge, Newfield, Tompkins, New York

Moved to Kane County, Illinois between 1837-8 with Abraham’s father, Ezekiel Linderman.

Maria Ann Mary <i>Hammell</i> Linderman

Abraham and Mary moved to Winona, Winona County, Minnesota in 1856. The old Linderman Home place was at: 231 E. Mark St., Winona, Winona County, Minnesota. They resided together until 1884 when Mary passed away, and Abraham resided there up until 1893 when he passed.

Mary & Abraham had one daughter, Mary Linderman, and no sons, that I am positive of.

They had Elizabeth A. “Lizzie” Linderman, who resided with them for years, She married Joseph James, and then a Loftus. My maternal great grandfather, Edward Francis Linderman, stated in his papers just that she was his Aunt Lizzie Loftus. (I have found no birth records for her or her parents names). They called her Aunt Lizzie Loftus.

The Linderman’s were Lutheran.

“Mary Linderman, wife of A. Linderman, died on the 7th. inst., at her home in this city in her 69th. year. As Mr. and Mrs. Linderman came to reside in Winona in April, 1856, her death takes another from the already diminished list of old settlers. For the past year, Mrs. Linderman has been a sufferer from the disease which finally terminated in dropsy and death, but had the unremitting attention of the members of her family and other kind friends. Mrs. Linderman was a woman of marked industry and force of character, and many can testify to her great kindness of heart. A large company of friends were present at the funeral and followed the remains to their resting place in Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Minnesota.” source publication: Winona Daily Republican Newspaper; Date: 1884 March 10; Page 3
