Thank you very much for the pictures of the graves of Charles & Mary Nute. They are my great,great grandparents. The pictures are very nice and clear, the flag by Charles' grave looks especially nice, and I appreciate your time and effort in taking and posting them. Thank you! Martha.

Someone else created their pages & posted them as having been buried in that cemetery. That person probably assumed they were buried there based on where they lived during their final years. It's possible that they're not there, or that their graves are unmarked. But thanks for looking.

Hi again Donna,
I went back to the cemetery- I finally finished photographing all the stones- and spent more time on your family. I took a photo from the south, which I'll attach to Joseph Curtiss. The graves in order are, Joseph Thompson, Mary Thompson, with 2 small arched marker stones leaning between their stones, Joseph Curtis, Joanna Curtis, then the MAT stone, which is probably Mary Thompson, then the single stone for Silas, Adaline and Allura. You can see lots of room beyond this stone which could be where Zaddoc Barnes is. Joseph C Thompson's inscription says "13th NY Infantry" "Died Oct 6 1861" "Aged 19 years", pretty sad. There is a small arched marker with the initials "LEH"- I'd guess a Hoskins? a child or perhaps one of Silas' parents? The other marker is blank, which is very odd and was maybe originally painted with initials? Mary's stone reads; "Mary A" "Daughter of Darius & Adaline Thompson" "Died July 31, 1877" "Aged 12 years, 7 months, 28 Days" Her initials would be "MAT", so probably the other small stone was a temporary marker for her.
I'll do a little research on "LEH" and make a memorial, then send it to you. I think I have done all I can do with the stones, if I find the burial records I'll look for more info. and let you know. have a great day, Fred

I know the very pretty towns of Saco and Biddeford from drives up 1 to Cape Elizabeth, so much has changed. My wife's family's Episcopal minister "retired" to Biddeford, I believe- his name is David Robinson, a really nice guy.
Have a great day,
I transferred the mysterious "MAT" who is in all likelihood Mary Thompson. The other stone just says "Mary" and may once have said "daughter of" or something else- it is just too worn. Sometimes people do have 2 stones, especially when one is very small. I also sent Adaline and Silas' daughter Allura, seemed a shame to break them up after all these years! I can try to look at the stones again or take a rubbing to see if anything else shows up. I'll let you know,

Hi Again Donna,
I did a bit of digging and found the 1855 census for the Curtiss family with Adaline, Joseph and Mary Thompson. I will transfer the memorials to you. I'm not sure what sort of notice you will receive, but they should show up right away. I spent many happy days in southern Maine- York, Wells and Ogunquit- as a kid. We hope to retire to New Hampshire in a few years and once again get good lobsters and blueberries!
Let me know if the transfers don't work,
|Frederick Porter||RE: Zaddock Barnes|
I was able to visit Lakeview today, but I was not able to locate Zaddock. I did find a small stone between Adaline and her parents- it is memorial #132545288, Just 3 initials MAT, I'll post a picture as soon as I can. There are at least 6 graves next to the Hoskins that are unmarked and Zaddock may be buried there. There are no other worn stones about. Joseph and Mary Thompson are buried right next to the Curtiss'- he died in 1861, but his stone is very worn and I can't tell how old he is, but he has a flag, so must be a CW vet??? Do you have Thompson relatives? I spent a lot of time on Joseph and Mary, but the stones are small and are in really bad shape. I'll post/update memorials asap. When I get as far as I can with the stone inscriptions for this cemetery I will try to find the burial records. I believe the cemetery is still maintained by an association, not the Town of Hamlin, so the records are in private hands and I may or may not be able to access them, but I will look for Zaddock if I can see the records in a few months. If you want any of these folks transferred to you just let me know!
|Frederick Porter||Zaddock Barnes|
Hi Donna, Thanks for the contact and corrections. When I first started this cemetery I worked from and old DAR list from the 1940's and there are lots of mistakes, sorry that I didn't compare the stone info when I attached it to the memorial. Many of the stones are now too worn to read, but not the Curtis/Curtiss stones. I have corrected the memorial. I'll look for Zaddock's stone today, if everything works out with the rain! I have photographed all of the stones around the Curtiss graves, but some are not legible- I can look for something that might be Zaddock or Barnes. I'll let you know!
