James Walsh, aged 68, the transient who died suddenly at the Town Hall Saturday evening, Nov. 14, was buried in the MRE Cemetery. No relatives of the man were found.
(I requested a photo of the gravestone, but none was found..it's possible no stone was purchased. Here is my reply from the person who searched for the stone:
The general problem they reported is: I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave
They also reported, specifically: I walked the entire cemetery on 4/19/15 and the only Walsh stones I could locate were for Michael and Marsha Graber-Walsh.
