“Realms of History: The Cemeteries of Staten Island”




In her discovery and documentation of more than seventy-five Staten Island burial grounds Ms. Salmon has “mapped the real estate of eternal rest” that exists or has existed on Staten Island. From the “Old Slave’s Burying Ground” located near Livermore Avenue and Forest Avenue in Port Richmond to the seventeenth century French Church Burial Ground that was (and still is) at the corner of Richmond Avenue and Arthur Kill Road in Green Ridge, Staten Island’s cemeteries harbor an array of genealogical, religious, social, cultural and historical information that also reveals the evolution of Staten Island.

    I enjoyed your lecture today on Institutions on SI. We had nice discussions with all of the comments by the audience. I won’t be available to hear your lecture on The Vanderbilts. I hope you’ll repeat it in the future.

      Thank you for writing Mary Jane. Hopefully you will be able to attend another program. I am just about to post the Autumn 2018 programs on the Upcoming page if you want to see what else is on the schedule. All the best. – Pat
