Researching and documenting my family history and that of my husband's for 35 years. Family surnames: Snyder / Enright / Duffy / Mackie / Philipps / Callaghan / Conneally / McLaughlin /Quinn / Nolan / Fischli / Tobin / Normile.|
I am recording our local Maplewood Cemetery, but it's taking time, as you can imagine. My son recorded Weeks' Cemetery for his Eagle project here in our town also.
Glad for edits, corrections, additional info.
You may use my photos without asking permission. No problem at all. Have a blessed day!
Ode to Maplewood Cemetery
By Emily C.A. Snyder, 2014:
There’s a stone by my front porch
Shaded by the maple bough
That asks one simple question:
Not who or when – but “Howe?”
Who lies beneath this marker?
When did he pass away?
Was this a him or her—
Or a family of “they?”
What was the man’s profession?
If only someone knew--?
But that is now a “Howe,”
And here’s no hint of “Who.”
What joys, perchance, were hers
That she savoured in her Then,
But How will neither speak of Whom
Much less to answer: “When.”
And whom did this Howe love?
Did she accept his solemn vow?
What wars disturbed their slumber,
As their name disturbs me now?
Stranger graves than this
Have laid their secrets bare
Disclosing who and when—
And better yet still!—Where.
“Why” is often hid from me
Although I sometimes guess
And whisper my conjecture
Over those who’ve gone to rest.
But I am restless, I am restless,
I can’t unknit my brow:
As I look out to the Maplewood
And wonder: “Howe, Howe, Howe!”
So here’s what I will do
(And they can’t stop me anyhow!):
I shall say that they were happy
And it doesn’t matter Howe.

Thanks for the photos, such a great enhancement to the memorial pages. I am thrilled to know that Amos Niles, my ggg-grandfather's, gravesite has been found, thanks to you. I have changed his memorial to reflect his whereabouts.
A thousand thank yous.

James Brown. I see you have his parents, his wife, 1 son (infant), etc.. Is there any chance there is a Roger Brown in the Brown plot? Roger would have been James' grandson (his father was Arthur Lunn Brown son of James & Nina). Roger Brown was married to my great Aunt - Ruth Adams Stone as her 1st husband. All one of the older cousins knew was he was buried in his family's plot in Marlborough and not in our family plot in Sudbury. Thank you for all the info you posted.

Many thanks for your help. I will now work on the relationship links, etc. to ensure that they reflecct the family tree & history. You have certainly been involved in an ambitious project! My failing eyesight has forced me to take a little at a time, but it is a great satisfaction.
|Lewis Clark||John A. Curtis 1911 - 1944|
Subject's full name is John Arnold Curtis, Jr. Parents, John A. & Dorothy M. Curtis, are buried on the Cape. He died in Maine as a result of a hunting accident at a camp owned by LL Bean. His wife, Eleanor (Bunn) Curtis . . . Marshall, is now buried next to him at Maplewood. He was first cousin to my Mother and oldest grand-child of Charles W. & Cora Belle (Arnold) Curtis with whom he is buried. He had a second daughter, Betsy, born 2 weeks after his tragic death.
|Lewis Clark||India H. (Arnold) Howe|
Subject person buried at Maplewood, along with husband, Louis P. Howe and other family members, was a sister of Cora Belle (Arnold) Curtis. In 1960, I was one of her pall-bearers as she was a very dear great-aunt of my Mother. Have tried to clarify the relationships, but the person who created these Howe memorials cannot be contacted! Do you have any suggestions as to how to proceed?

I added Harold's Parents...and suggested an edit.

|Charlet Roskovics||Howard Gassett|
Ooops! I meant Florida, Holmes County, Bonifay.
|Charlet Roskovics||Howard Gassett|
Please add to Howard Gassett's memorial that he was born in Massachusetts, Plymouth County, Brockton and died in Florida, Bonifay County, Holmes.
Thank you, Charlet
