I have changed her burial location to FT Lincoln, thank you for the correction. If you have additional info you would like added to her memorial, please send me another SAC.
I knew her, too.

Thanks for the message, I have no issues with you using the photos. I don't do it for credit I do it so people who are into genealogy and family history can enjoy seeing graves of relatives from far off places. I'm glad I was able to help you with these photos.

I have taken additional pictures of the Goyette grave. On the back is
A Brouillard 1920-1963
|David Larson||Alfred Adams gravestone|
We could read the Alfred Adams on the gravestone, but couldn't make out anything else on there. Could you enlighten us? The Alfred H. Adams we're looking for was buried in a potter's field and was born in 1828 or 29 and died in 1893. Thanks!
Nancy & David Larson

I believe the last name on the stone is A. Brouillard. When I return to that cemetery I will look to get a better photo or copy names and dates so information is correct.
Thanks for trying to fill my photo request. According to the Hale collection Hermoine is buried there with a son named Barney. Charles Hale catalogued cemetery headstones in the 1930's so he must have found them at that time.
My guess is that they are both buried there but their stones are no longer around.

Thanks so much for taking the time to search for headstones for my g-g-grandparents, Thomas & Nancy Ward. I had been to the cemetery years ago - before I had found their obits - and found the stone for Nancy's father, Barnard Davey.
I so appreciate your help!

YES!... Looks like the one. He was the grandson of the Aaron Prather for whom the obelisk was erected in 1866. Dates make more sense, now. I have b. abt 1800, but who would quibble over a few years...:-)

Thanks so much for the extra effort in looking for the grave of my ancestor, Mary Ward. I appreciate the explanation you offered so I will know the likely disposition of her gravesite. I agree... such a shame!! I am a volunteer in southern Maine. If there is anything I can do to repay the favor, please let me know.

I wanted you to know that I went to investigate the location of "Potter Field" at the Psychiatric Center in Kings Park. It is a massive facility with hundreds of acres and no signs!
Most of the building are in ruins and have plans to be demo'd.
I drove around & spoke to anyone that I saw walking on the grounds & asked where the cemetery was, but no one knew!
After 2 hrs of searching the grounds, I decided to call it quits for the day but at the last minute I pulled into a local pub on Flynn Rd,which skirts the grounds of the hospital. Sure enough someone was able to explain to me how to find the graveyard, but I would have to walk thru the woods in an unmarked area. So I will make another trip and go back to see if I can find the plot.
I think it would be helpful for you to "google" Kings Park Psychiatric Center and read their page on the cemetery. As you will see, most of the graves only have "numbered markers" and no tombstones.
It think it would take incredible luck to find an actual headstone for her. Would you know what her number was?
I also found out that the records for the cemetery are now kept at Pilgrim State Psychiatric Hospital, but they will only release information to the family? Perhaps you could contact them to get the number and then I would be happy to try to find her marker.
My apologize for this long message.
