Carol Gramer, John Belmonte

Carol Randolph Gramer, a principal in the benefits consulting firm of William M. Mercer, was married yesterday to John Albert Belmonte, a freelance writer. Both work in New York. Canon Ralph E. Hutton performed the Episcopal ceremony at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Orleans, Mass.
Ms. Gramer, 40, is keeping her name. She graduated from the College of William and Mary. She is a daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph W. Gramer of Brewster, Mass.
Mr. Belmonte, 45, is the former real estate editor of The Daily News. He is the son of John M. Belmonte of Middle Village, Queens, and the late Ellen D. Belmonte. His previous marriage ended in divorce.

Calverton National Cemetery, where John was buried, is a United States National Cemetery located in eastern Long Island between the towns of Manorville and Riverhead in Suffolk County, New York. It encompasses 1,045 acres and as of the end of 2005 had 187,662 interments.

When the National Cemetery System constructed Calverton National Cemetery in 1978, the cemetery became the third national cemetery to be located on Long Island. The other national cemeteries situated on Long Island are Cypress Hills National Cemetery, in Brooklyn, New York, which was established in 1862 and Long Island National Cemetery, in Farmingdale, New York, established in 1936.
