A Virtual Cemetery created by: ellejwalters
Description: Thirty Union Soldiers from Holden, MA. that never came home from the war. They're honored with their names on four, white marble memorial tablets erected by the Holden Soldier's Monument Association in 1876 and placed in Memorial Hall located in the Town Hall of Holden. Please view Pvt. George Washington Thurston's memorial page in this virtual cemetery to see more pictures of Holden. He is my great grand uncle.
