Re: Samuel Mayo
Hey Ditdit

I was just at the Orleans Cemetery out on Cape Cod and snapped some grave shots. I am fairly certain you have a photo on Samuel Mayo's page #47232382 that really belongs to #50987322.

Just lending a hand.

Here is obit which shows death occurred in RI.

SOUTH DENNIS Helen Thacher Crowell Angell passed away peacefully on Thursday, Dec. 25, 2008, at Women and Infants Hospital in Providence, R.I., after a brief illness, surrounded by her loved ones.

Born in South Dennis to Josephine Leach and Edward E. Crowell, Helen was very fond of her deep ties to the Cape, with ancestors who were among the first settlers of Dennis and Yarmouth. Helen dearly loved her brother, Edward A. Crowell of West Barnstable, her late sister, Jean (Mrs. Richard) Dunham of South Dennis, and her late brother, Robert E. Crowell of South Dennis.

Helen was the widow of the late William C. Angell (who died at home in 1997) of South Dennis. She is survived by her first husband and the father of her children, Lester D. Hatch of Harwichport.

Helen was a member of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps and earned her degree as a registered nurse at the Somerville Hospital during World War II. She was proud of her work at Providence Lying-In Hospital, Boston City Hospital, Quincy City Hospital, and Massachusetts General Hospital. She enjoyed teaching and was an instructor for nurses' aides at the Centerville Nursing home, Cape Cod Hospital and Cape Cod Community College.

After retiring, she managed the Hospice Thrift Shop in Barnstable Village for many years, and much enjoyed the friendship of the other volunteers. Helen was a member of Dennis Historical Society, the Old South Dennis Village Association, and the Mayflower Society. She founded the Cape Cod Postcard Collectors Club in 1986.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 46647281
Glad to help. Also have inquiry out to Mooers Town Historian.

RE: the Union Cem. transcript, its not the first time I've found it listed people that are not buried there & contains numerous other mistakes, so I now use it with caution & try to confirm elsewhere.

Guess it ain't supposed to be easy. Good thing, eh?

Best regards,

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 46647281
Hi- sorry for the confusion RE the Hagars. Yes, the evidence seems to point pretty conclusively that they are not buried in the Union Cemetery in Port Henry, but in Mooers.

Probing the vacant areas in Lot 115 with a tile probe did not turn up any fallen stones.

Have requested photos of the Mooers Cem.stones just to be sure - will advise when/if I recieve them.

Once again - think I know why I was unable to find their gravestones.

SEE: Memorial# 46185972 & Memorial# 46186028 & others in Mooers Riverside Cemetery

Re: the Rev. Hagar, Chaplain of the 118th NY Infantry; there was no "Company S" as such - what the abbreviation in the adjutant General's report stands for is "Field and Staff": the Regiental Commander, his staff, and the support personnel for the regiment such as the Surgeopn and medical staff, farriers, teamsters, bakers, signals, Chaplain, couriers..etc.

Also, FYI recently searched for his gravestone, and was unable to find one. Whether it's fallen & buried, destroyed, or he never had one I don't know.

Best regards.

Swan Lake Cemetery Annex
Can you tell me if the Swan Lake Cemetery and Swan Lake Annex Cemetery are one and the same. I came across a military burial which said he was buried in Swan Lake annex cemetery in Dennis Port. He is not already entered in F-A-G and I'd like to put him and his wife in the right cemetery.

RE: Nathan & Nabby Cahoon
They may be out of the required guidelines, but with you managing so many memorials it would be very gracious of you to transfer these important family members to me.
