McDevitt _ Astoria

Please can anyone help find a grave in Astoria.

I am trying to trace the last known address and burial place of my cousin Joseph McDevitt born 1885 in Donegal Ireland. He died around the 1960s ( 1950-70) in Astoria, New York, this is confirmed by my elderley uncle who went to his funeral and cemetery (catholic) but cant remember where.

Apparently Joseph was a licensed taxi driver in New York and had a wooden leg due to a car accident. He lived with his wife Ellen McDevitt in Astoria and is shown on the 1930 census with her and their 2 twin sons joseph and john born in 1923. Ellen was still alive when joe died and she also possibly died in the 1960s.

I have contacted local catholic churches in Astoria but their records are incomplete and spent hundreds of hours on this.

Any help please.
