Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love cemeteries!

I was raised in a house that was built during the late 1800's as a Funeral Parlor. Back then, the embalmer lived right in the house where he prepared the deceased for burial. After he passed away, the house went to two single women and stayed that way for decades.

My parents were the first people to live in the house with children. As a toddler I slept in the same room where the embalming had been done. When I was older, I slept upstairs where the bodies had been kept. It was great fun to grow up in a house that had "special features!" Growing up in a house that once had been used as a funeral parlor and for viewings was normal for me.

Luther Straw
i am having difficulty find this grave. The caretakers do not seem to know of him either. I did find a Elvira A Straw. She is in the Beckford plot. That is where the caretakers sent me. no Luther. Do you have any more info? There is a site NHOGA.ORG. it is a grave site association. They may have some info.

i created a grave site posting for Marian S. Lacerte. She was one of the internments in the Straw-Lacerte plot in Park Cemetery. Do you want me to transfer the site to you?

Thanks! Your photo of his stone is a vast improvement over what was there!

RE: Wilder memorials
If you wish to transfer, I would be delighted to transfer. However, they are cousins (not direct), so if you prefer to keep them, please do.

I requested the photo before I realized that she did not have a stone at all.

I request photos on Find-A-Grave so people can take high resolution photos. is an old site with extremely poor resolution photos.

The Sears family is fairly well documented on Find-A-Grave, with the assistance of L Ray Sears' recent research on the family.
