Description Black and white original photograph of Jacob Burinescu's grave stone (possibly on Staten Island). Jacob died of the Spanish flu on November 8, 1918. His mother's grave is located behind him. According to family history it lists the wrong age because at age 70 she went to get life insurance and they told her to register as 55 years old and that age was recorded at her death.
