The receipt is dated 23 November 1909. The day before Sophia Albert was buried there. It was purchased by two of her children John M. Albert and Julia Albert for $35. According to the plot card, (scan is below) the lot held twelve graves.
Many years later on 6 June 1929, John and Julia Albert paid another $100 for perpetual care for the lot of their parents.

A photo of their lot is below.
John Albert (1855-1899) married Sophia Albert (1858-1909) on 13 Sept 1874 at Our Lady Help of Christians church on Second Avenue. Both were children of German immigrants from Baden. As far as I can determine, the two were not related. John was a moulder working for Ransom Stove Company, in Albany.
