I made the changes you suggested. Could you check them to make sure I understood you and got them right?

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?

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).
