Bill, Trinity is pretty famous; it's near the WTC site. When I worked there I would
walk by some lunch hours and look at the old gravestones.
They have records online, which several interesting leads.
You might peruse this site. I don't know if reinterments and/or family vaults are in
their online records.

Subject: [NYRichmo] STAPLES RESEARCH
Still looking to solve a mystery in connection with a John Staples who lived in Manhattan
(Greenwich) and died in 1809. Married to Amy Purdy 1798.
John and Amy both from New Rochelle
John's mother lived
with him in 1803 and was identified as Elizabeth Ransom so John's father apparently
died and his mother remarried making finding his father rather tricky.
In searching for John's father I find a cemetery listing from New Rochelle with
Elizabeth Lispenard died 1797 and her daughter Elizabeth, LATE WIFE OF JOHN STAPLE died
Nov 1797 at 39 years 7 months.
Also stated is the fact that the cemetery has been destroyed and some remains were removed
to the ' Lispenard Family Vault at Trinity Episcopal Church in Manhattan'.
Where would this Church be ?
John Staples Vault is in St Pauls Churchyard but I find no Lispenards in that cemetery.
Too many Johns and Elizabeths.
