To All,

We have created an online petition to help support Lynn and the Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries. Please join us by signing on at the link below. All human remains deserve a proper burial. (Full First and Last Name)

Petition for the Proper Re-Interment of Immigrant Remains


http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/Re-InterrmentofImmigrantRemains/index.html



Last month Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries. S.I. sent out a plea for letters of support for the proper re-interrment of the immigrant remains that were EXHUMED from the St. George municipal parking lot once the site of the NYC Quarantine Hospital/cemetery. This particular NYC Quarantine station operated from 1799-1858. The immigrants who came to the USA during these years and were ill (as many were) passed through the S.I. Quarantine Hospital and ultimately many died and were buried at the cemetery now the St. George MUNICIPAL PARKING LOT.

These human remains were EXHUMED in 2006. They are now held at a facility located in Brooklyn in storage boxes.

Friends of Abandoned Cemeteries has offered a large section of Staten Island Cemetery that we maintain for the proper reinterrment of these HUMAN remains. The USA Ancient Order of Hibernians as well as the Columcille Irish Cultural Center, many local Staten Island organizations have backed the plan.

Without letters of support from our community, these remains will be PUT BACK INTO THE PARKING LOT. Paved over once again and forgotten.

Please, we ask that you take 1 minute of your time, send a letter of support to: SICemetery@aol.com . Support the reinterrment to Staten Island Cemetery.

We can make this happen. We can provide a dignified reinterrment. You can make a difference.

Please send a letter of support today to SICemetery@aol.com Time is running out.

Thank you.

Lynn A. Rogers
