RE: Brewster Lot

Dick If it interests you and you care to poke around there ...

I posted this message for Marie Hayes and will repeat it for you:
According to the main office @ Calvary Cemetery, there are seven family members resting in that plot including William Havens Brewster ..., but no year or date of burial was ever entered in the cemetery log.
The others are Mary (his wife); Harold Brewster (their son) no info recorded, but he died on 3.15.1925, age 17; Harris (Brewster?), no info recorded; Raymond Brewster (their son), died in 1973; and Herbert and Anna (Brewster) Barnhart (their son-in-law and daughter), died in 1985 and 1975 respectively.

RE: Brewster

Dick I sent additional info re George last week (using the edit tab). Do those edit suggestions go directly to you?

I agree about the sunken footstones @ S.J., and have periodically requested re-sets (which they're pretty good at doing). They do make an effort each summer (starting in late spring) to weedwhack the flats stones and uncover buried ones, which is helpful. Still can't understand, however, why they don't have computerized records at that office.
FYI: I have a record of all interments, including grave locations, 1956 to about 1967/68; my grandfather's handwritten memo-book (from when he was the superintendent there, working for the church). It's come in handy on a few occasions and I took time to copy the original pages and give them to the staff there.

Re George Brewster's obit ...
It can be accessed online (but I can't c&p it); will email the link to you.

re: George R. Brewster

Regarding your assumption that this man may have been related to William Havens Brewster and Mary (Brady) Brewster ...

Indeed, he was their son.
[One of his sisters was married to a Barnhardt.]

I saw the same monument (after you visited and unearthed George's footstone).

Sent some edit-info for George's memorial, taken from his obit which can be found online in the Naugatuck Daily News for 9/28/65 (front page).

I'll post a note to the contributor who's looking for info on William and Mary Brewster.

Mary Brewster
Thanks for looking for the headstone of Mary Brewster. I am not sure if George is her son. I do not know of a relationship with the Barnhart's.

Ludwika Nowociesnki Grave Photo
Thank you so very Much for taking the time and making the effort to find and photograph Ludwika's grave. When I attempted to find and photograph the grave, and asked the people in the cemetery office for the location of the grave, couldn't find any records for it. Thanks again for your help.

Do you have the grave marker inscription for Uri Tuttle #83316783? It's impossible to read from the images you've supplied.

Hi Dick,

Thank you for taking some photos of the marker of my 5th great grandfather, Samuel Downs (III). May I have your permission to use the photos in my family tree? I will give you proper credit in the caption. Thanks.

RE: Grove Cemetary

Incidentally, our childhood 'cemetery memories' are similar. Did the same thing with my parents until they passed. Decades ago, my grandfather had been a longtime superintendent @ Saint James, living in a house adjacent to the cemetery (along the old Route 8 / then 'Riverside Drive'). We used to play hide-'n-seek behind the monuments. ;o/

RE: Grove Cemetary
Thanks, Dick. I'm used to cleaning around (or cleaning off) markers, too; and I walk away with a good feeling. Mt stomping grounds are nextdoor at Saint James. I'm much less familiar with Grove, and get a bit disoriented; but my photo requests are for people I once knew. Just posted another and do hope that you'll stumble upon the Petereit graves at some point.

RE: Marguerite Fidlay


It's fine the way you cropped it. I actually visited Margie's grave within the last week, but hadn't gotten around to posting a photo. I try to do the same (as you) whenever possible. I just posted a photo of the banner (left by a family member), but have asked Mike to bump it down to 3rd place on the memorial. I found it to be appropot (for Marge).

Never got to find (and visit) the Lawtons and the Newmans. Glad you were able to get to those for me. Any chance that you were able to check on the Petereits? I don't frequent Grove Cemetery, but these folks were al old neighbors of mine.

Thanks again.
