Robert Comeau
Cyril Dufresne
Name is listed as Selina in the Holyoke City Hall copy but by the end of the year the Massachusetts state copy has Cyril Dufresne. Also listed in Holyoke as a female but is a male in the state copy.

RE: Duplicate memorials
Yes, the information needs to be merged into Mark Wing's creation...BUT...a facility is not provided to easily effect this.

Thanks for the heads up! Guess I couldn't decide if I wanted Ronald or Ronald H!

RE: St Jerome cemetery photos
Ooh, I see. Thank you very much! Yes, one of those other pictures appears pointless. The lion, as far as the church's identity is concerned, is significant. I appreciate your taking the time to view all of the pictures!

Charles Proulx 1820-1910
Photo of Charles Proulx's site has been added. There wasn't any request in the cemetery listing though.
I used to work with his Grandson Dallas (Del) in the local woolen mill, and went to school with Del's son Jim, who was killed in an auto accident after coming home from the Vietnam war.

RE: Albert Dwight Briggs (1820 - 1881)
The whereabouts of Rev. W. B. O. Peabody -- this discussion encompasses volumes! The short of it is that I, myself, do not know. Butthen, I haven't researched this, yet.

His father, Oliver, died in WBOP's hometown of Exeter, NH. After the father's death, his mother, Frances B. [Bourn] Peabody, was at Rev. W.B.O.P.'s home when she died on 28 Dec 1844. Even though WBOP owned a lot at Springfield, there's no indication that he or his wife is there.

His first child, Howard Peabody, born in Springfield, died at age 10 months on 12Mar 1828. Where's he buried? Next, his wife, Elizabeth Amelia (White) Peabody, died on 3 Oct 1843. Where's she? And then there was his daughter, Fanny Brown Peabody, who died at age 18, on 28 Jan. 1844. Where is she? None appears to be at Springfield Cemetery.

The only one of his family that i know is at Springfield Cemetery is his son, Everett. Everett was buried in his father's lot and appears to be the only burial in that lot. Ownership of the lot was transferred to WBOP 's grandson, Frank E. Peabody, in 1909.

The possibilities go on and on.Do you have any ideas?

Albert Dwight Briggs (1820 - 1881)
In your photo request, thank you for the note about A. D. Briggs having served as President of the Springfield Cemetery Association. It should also be noted that, from the age of 14, he was raised in the home of the Cemetery's founder and first president, Rev. Dr. Peabody. In earlier years, Briggs served as a member of the trustees, during which time he was a key member of the committee for the establishment of a memorial to Rev. Peabody (1858; memorial was erected on the north side of what became later the Chapin Memorial Chapel in 1886 and the Crematory in 1910).
