I'm concentrating on the cemeteries in Windsor, Vermont. My goal is to photograph each headstone and include information that's as accurate as possible. It's a work in progress, inspired by my search for my great-great grandmother's final resting place in or near Hurley, New York.|

Thanks Cathy, for the updates. I have made the additions. Thought I had your personal email saved, but guess I didn't.

We make a great team! If you had not found that obituary, we would never have known where they held their meetings. Thank you! My brother and I will try to be in Windsor on Monday, but we were'nt planning on being there until Tuesday. We have deceased ancestors in West Fairlee, Strafford, and Thetford and we were planning on visiting those towns on Monday and then focusing on Hartland, Windsor, Claremont and Woodstock on Tuesday before we make the trek back to CT.

I contacted the City of Claremont where she is buried and requested the correct spelling on her name because I had seen it spelled 4 different ways. This is the spelling on the stone.

Eugene P. Robinson
The Vermont Journal, January 23, 1936
Military honors were paid in tribute to Eugene Parker Robinson, 89, who saw nearly three years� service in the Civil War and who was a charter member of William C. Tracy post, G. A. R., of Windsor, at the funeral services at the Rachel E. Harlow Methodist church this afternoon at 2 o�clock. Mr. Robinson died Monday night at the Claremont hospital where he had been under treatment for a few days.
He was born in Pittsfield, April 28, 1846, the son of Charles Proctor and Mary E. (Parker) Robinson. His family moved to Weathersfield and it was from this town that he enlisted at the age of 17. He joined Company H, Seventh Vermont Volunteers December 14, 1863, and the date of muster was January 2, 1864. From then he served until he was mustered out March 18, 1866. The war over, he returned to Weathersfield. He married Harriet A. Fitch at Cornish, N. H., May 12, 1869 and the couple continued to live in Weathersfield, later coming to Windsor.
Mr. Robinson was one of the oldest members of the Methodist church which he joined January 23, 1873. When the William C. Tracy post of G. A. R. formed June 13, 1883, he joined and served in the various post offices including commander.
He was the father of three sons and a daughter; Samuel Frank, who died in Windsor, February 14, 1935; Wilfred E. who has served as fire chief in Windsor for nearly 40 years; Martin Charles, and Mrs. Nellie May Swan. He is survived by nine grandchildren all of Windsor; Eldon, Locke, and Earl Robinson, Mrs. James Colburn, Kenneth Swan, Mrs. Elna Howe, Merton, Jr., Mercelene and Maefred Robinson. There are 10 great grandchildren. His wife died March 1, 1911.
Until about 15 years ago, Mr. Robinson conducted a trucking business in Windsor. He was a quiet, genial man and his fine character gave him a place of esteem with his towns people for about three generations.
At the time of the erection of the Methodist church he served on the board of trustees. Sons of Union Veterans, the Auxiliary and World War veterans attended the services this afternoon when Rev. I. A. Ranney officiated.

sorry, instead of "sacrificed" I meant "risked their lives".

Through your generosity and kindness you have given your own time towards helping preserve the memories of the Civil War comrades of GAR Post #35 who sacrificed their lives to preserving the Union during The Great Rebellion. Perhaps these men fought in the same battles as your ancestor. Thanks to you we now know where they held their GAR meetings and the ranks of the officers sworn in on the day the post was founded. Looking forward to visiting Windsor and theses important sites next week!

Thank you for the correction and for the beautiful picture of the tombstone.
I've changed the date to match the tombstone.
