RE: More Mower tomorrow?
Tim,
Very clever!! I will see if we can do more Mower tomorrow. I have located their section (13) and, as long as they have markers, should be able to find them. Glad to help. With all the time I spend in Evergreen I may have to get a plot there!

RE: Samuel A. Mower
Tim,
I was at Evergreen Cemetery and found Samuel and Eliza Moyer (she died on June 6, 1954). I took some pictures for you - what would you like me to do with them? I didn't see a photo request for them - I can email them to you or post them if you file a request.

RE: Samuel A. Mower
Hi Tim,
Evergreen is a huge Cemetery in New Haven. They have a map available which is a great help if you know what street/lane he is buried in. I will stop at the office on Friday and they will pinpoint it for me and I'll try to take some pics for you.

RE: Rosaline D. Farrington Mower
Hi Tim,

I was in the process of posting the pictures of all the names on that headstone when we got hit with a major storm. We have just gotten our power back after 27 hours.

I do not believe Charles is buried there with his wife. I have transcribed the entire cemetery and there are no Mower names other than Rosaline.

I will put the rest of the photos up for that stone.

Hi Tim,
Thank you for taking the time to look for Luther Mower's headstone. Being an old stone your probably right, that it has faded. If I find more information I will let you know. Thanks again!

Sincerely, Melinda

RE: Wm. C. Tracy Post
Hi Tim,

Yes! I like teamwork! Let's plan on meeting at the library in Windsor on Tuesday then. It sounds like that will fit better with your plan. They're open from 2 to 6 on Tuesday and I can easily use the time to do my microfilm research. It will only take a few minutes to show you the newspaper so it doesn't matter when you show up. If it doesn't work out, I can take a picture of those pages and e-mail them to you.

We had a mix of ice and snow yesterday so the ground is very wet again.

Oh my gosh! I was definitely asleep at the wheel when I transcribed that obituary. I'm so glad you noticed it! Just goes to show two heads are better than one. When you come to Windsor, please stop in at the library. I'm there Mon., Wed., and Friday from 2 to 6. It's just up the hill from the Hazen building, and I'll show you the actual issues of the 1883 Vermont Journal - my guess is you'd like to see them. I'll be sitting at the microfilm reader, through the door to the right of the main desk.

RE: Vermont Journal Request
Hi Tim,
I'm glad to know where they met also! Having the date made it so much easier to find, and I'm curious, where did you find it?

I hope you have a good trip and enjoy the sights. And thanks for the kind words!

RE: Vermont Journal Request
Hi Tim,

I found the GAR organization article then scanned the subsequent VJ issues for a meeting location which turns out to be the Hazen building; then checked with Barbara Rhoad for it's location. If you enter 18 State St., Windsor, VT in Google Maps, and bring up the street view you'll see it. It's white, three stories, with a green awning on the first floor. It's the third building from the corner of State and Main. The Windsor House is on Main Street across from the post office. Be sure to stop there to see the historical society display when you're in town.

Also I just finished transcribing the paragraphs below and noted the dates.

Cathy


The Vermont Journal, June 16, 1883;
Vol. xxxviii, No. 24:

"Comrade H. E. Taylor, Chief Mustering officer of the Department of Vermont, organized a Post of the G. A. R. on Wednesday evening, June 13. The Post was named after Capt. Wm C.

RE: Kent plot
The names would be Henry A Kent (1867-1898) and Henry K Kent (1896-1898).

RE: Kent plot
FYI: I was able to photograph the primary monument on the lot; however, only two names appear on it. If I'm not mistaken, there are several flat markers on this lot...so it will take a few weeks before the snow will be out of the way. ;-)

RE: Kent plot
Let me know if you're interested in any of the other Kent and/or Mower names. I'm aware of a few (that don't have memorials on FindaGrave).

FYI:

I have the exact location of the Kent lot, and will photograph as soon as the weather allows.

For your records, it's lot no. 625 found on Snowberry Path.

Also buried in this lot are:

*Henry A. Kent: d. Feb 6, 1899;
*Henry K. Kent; d. Oct 18, 1899;
*Edward A Kent; d. Mar 21, 1911;
*Stillman K Kent; d. May 31, 1931; and
*George H. Kent; d. Oct 12, 1931.

(These names/dates are found in a secondary source that occasionally contains errors.)

If you'd like to add memorials for them, I will upload photos to those as well.

RE: Harry Mower
Tim

I thought that Margaret might be their daughter but did not want to make an incorrect relationship. Now that I am certain, I will add the link to her parents. The stone is in great condition. I believe that Harry worked for Uniroyal which is quite fitting as the view from the stone looks down hill toward RT 8 and the Naugatuck River, and on the other side of the river, what is left of the old Uniroyal factory. One of the old buildings was used in the "War of the Worlds" movie with Tom Cruise. Will see if I can find the son.
