Re: Ghostlike appearances; portraits on gravestones

Christian’s recent post about portraits seen on gravestones in the Czernowitz Jewish cemetery <https://vanishedworld.wordpress.com/2015/04/25/ghostlike-appearences/> reminded me that these portraits occur in New York City cemeteries as well.  Several years back I went searching for the tombstone of Sarah Silver at the Mt. Hebron Cemetery, Queens, New York.  Sarah was born in Radautz, and was a sister of my great grandmother, Hinde Schachter nee Brucker.  She lived in Montreal, then Cleveland, and died unexpectedly during a visit with another sister in New York City.  Her tombstone bears the only photo I’ve ever found of her.  See below.
