Alfred Police Department We have contacted Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Cheektowaga and they are looking into it on their end. It is a possibility that the stone was replaced and the one we recoved is an old stone. I will update this posting as i get more information. Thanks to everyone that has called in with information.
