NYC grave of Titanic victim to be recognized

- The Evergreens Cemetery, which straddles the Brooklyn-Queens border, is the final resting place of thousands of people.

An amateur Titanic researcher in England inquired about Sante Righini, a 28-year-old manservant who drowned aboard the titanic after reportedly surrendering his spot in a lifeboat to the woman behind him.

Righini was believed to be buried at nearby Union Field Cemetery, according to findagrave.com. But a picture of the headstone and those around it indicated that Evergreens Cemetery is the actual location.

Danny Daddario, who has worked there for decades, is set to host a service Saturday to acknowledge Righini. He hopes to install some sort of plaque or sign pointing passers-by to his grave.
