27098Re: Where was Zahorchak buried?
- Jul 1, 2010Can you tell me if John Zahorchak is burried in your Cemetery?
I have attached a news paper article with the information that I have taken from The Herald Statesman,Yonkers,NY Wednesday,March 4,1942.
John was alone in this Country at the time of his death and it is presumed that he may been burried by the county of Westchester following an investigation into his death.
Any help is appreciated!

I have checked our records and sorry to say that John Zahorchak was not buried here in Kensico. You may want to check with Gate of Heaven cemetery located nearby us. Their phone number is 914-769-3672.
