  1. Have you seen any old photos of the graveside showing the urns flanking the stairs? Only the metal cones that held them aloft remain. They can be seen in images on albanypostcardproject, but not in any great detail. The postcards also show some granite curbing that seems to have been removed, as well as all the chains along the front of the lot still being in place.
