RE: Belmont Cemetery request
Bill, You're right! Belmont Cemetery was most helpful. My aunt, Regina O'Brien is buried next to her husband, Norbert O'Brien, in the old part of Belmont Cemetery, Lot 75c. Jeff looked this up and says he would be happy to show you the grave. Thanks so much (in advance) for the photo.

James H Wallie - Thank You!
Hi Bill,

James Wallie was my Godfather. Thank you so much for taking a picture of his grave and adding it to his entry in Find A Grave. Mr. Wallie was a very nice and remarkable man. He grew up poor but became an engineer, invested in real estate and became a big success. He traveled the world. However, he never forgot where he came from and remained humble, not to mention very nice and very charitable. Trust me that this man was well worth your time to find and photograph his grave. He was a "peach".

Thank you and God bless you.

RE: Belmont Cemetery request

So nice of you to volunteer to help!

I don't know the exact location of my great aunt's grave. Her name is Regina Quinlan O'Brien (1909-1991) and she is buried next to her husband Norbert Lawrence O'Brien (1906-1976) in Belmont Cemetery. I could find no entry for either of them in the Belmont Cemetery online directory yet her daughter knows she is buried there. So I added an entry for her in Find-A-Grave.

Is there more than one Catholic cemetery in Belmont? Perhaps my cousin has the wrong cemetery.

Thanks again for your help,

Thank you. Thats too bad the other names are not engraved. It just looks strange to see Grace Mccolgans name and no others. :( Denise.

RE: Catholic Mount Auburn- also in the lots
Thank you for the information! I know you spoke last week at the Cambridge Public library, and I was dissappointed that I could not attend. I have found your work very helpful.

RE: Also buried with John Patten
This is very kind of you to share! It means a great deal to the family. Would you have any record of the burial site of George A. Patten (son of John Patten) or his wife Annie (Burchell) Patten?

Obituary: "George A. Patten.
Funeral services were held Tues., a.m., at the Sacred Heart Church, Watertown, for Geo. A. Patten, 81, of 28 Aberdeen Ave., well known retired local policeman, who died Aug. 23 at the City Hospital, following a heart attack.
He had been a member of the Police Dept. for several years, and was well known in the East Cambridge section where he patrolled. He was a charter member of Cambridge Lodge of Elks.
Surviving are 3 sons, Major Raymond L. Patten, serving with the Military Police, a local police officer on military leave, Patrolman Leonard E. Patten of this city, Geo. A., Jr. and 2 daughters, Mrs. John B. Rogers of Detroit and Mrs. Edw. L. Grueby of Belmont."

I really appreciate all the research you have done. I knew my ancestor died on Rainsford Island from small pox. I felt so sad that he died away from his family at only sixteen years old. He must of joined the Mass 5th Colored Calvary to follow in the footsteps of his older brothers. They were Native Americans. Thank you for researching and posting the history of the island. At least now we know more about his circumstances and I can keep this history for my family. Maybe one day we can visit and pay our respects.

Thank you, I would've never known where one of my more mysterious ancestors was buried if it wasn't for your work!

Mary E Gatt, #114182195
Thank you for creating this memorial for Mary Ellen Gatt, the eldest sister of my 2d great-grandmother, Jane Gatt.

Birth record:
Birth no. 271, Charlestown, MA, Mary Ellen Gatt, b 21 Jun 1860, daughter of James R & Mary (Downing) Gatt.

Death record:
Death 393, Charlestown, MA. Mary E Gatt, b abt 1860, d 20 Oct 1865 at Charlestown, Massachusetts, Res. 12 Corey. Death Age: 5y 4m. Father Name: James J Gatt Mother Name: Mary Downey. Cause: congestion of the brain. Burial: Mt Auburn, Cambridge.

I was wondering if you could help me locate the location of her father's grave? Her father's death was recorded in Charlestown: James J. Gatt, 33 yo, d 17 Feb 1872 at Corey St, Charlestown; occupation--carpenter; parents--George & Marion; cause--heart disease; burial location--Malden.

I am assuming that the indication "Malden" could denote either Holy Cross or St. Mary. Any assistance you could provide would be most appreciated.

Best Regards,

Jane Gatt Muir Sellery

RE: LTC James Fleming
There was a government stone ordered for him and shipped to his cemetery. The order was dated Nov 29, 1879. It was possibly never shipped, lost, stolen of is buried beneath the ground- which I have found very often. If you know his exact grave location you could probe around. Otherwise, contact the local Veteran group and place an order which will be made if you are a descendant or perhaps even if you're not.
Good luck

Took me a while to remember the source.

It was newspaper extracts at that led to discovery of his whereabouts.

I updated to include additional info in his bio.

You might able to find more listings of deaths at Rainsford Island through's "U.S., Newspaper Extractions from the Northeast, 1704-1930"
