Daniel, Norah and Emily Lee buried in Calvary? 1880/1885 died in Brooklyn

Hello list,
I have ancestors buried in Calvary Cemetery and am hoping someone who has access to the book, "Old Calvary Cemetery: New Yorkers Carved in Stone" could perhaps perform a look-up.

My ancestor, Norah (possibly Honora) Lee, b. @ 1819 in Ireland, d. 15 May 1880 in Brooklyn. She was married to Daniel Lee, b. @ 1834? in Ireland, d. 17 Jul 1885 in Brooklyn. Following Norah's death, Daniel remarried Emily (Emma) Graen in 1882. I know that Norah is buried in Calvary as her death notice in New York Herald of 17 May 1880 states "following requiem mass at St. Patrick's, burial in Calvary."

I am hoping that Daniel and his second wife, Emily are both buried there as well with her. I believe the time of Norah's death would put them in the 2nd Section of Calvary.

I have ordered Norah's death certificate from LDS and am awaiting that, hoping it will give me her maiden name as well.

Any assistance offered would be much appreciated.
