Notes: Rosa Massey's plot contains one other headstone, that of Charlotte (Berkley) Henry, presumed to be her sister. Her husband, Leonard Massey, was born in North Carolina ca. 1867 and worked as a railroad porter in New York City. Another sister, Julia Berkley, also migrated north to New York, where she was still living on West 133rd Street in 1940.
