Final destination?

Mary Ann points to the spot in the Mishkan Israel Cemetery in New Haven that I am trying to score for myself and Dennis. To the left and in front of the plot Mary Ann is pointing to, is the grave of my great grandmother Delia Zunder Weil (of The Delia Wall fame).  1866-1910.  My mother's grandmother but she died well before my mother's birth.  I'm still working on this with the cemetery person who is none too motivated to move this forward.  That place was my great grandfather Charles Weil but he remarried and is buried with his second wife's family.

But that's the spot.  My parents, grandparents, great grandparents and great great grandparents are all buried here.  Along with a lot of 19th century Jewish New Haven.
