|Bio and Links|
|I was born in Lewiston Me. in 1936, my parents were Myron and Eileen "Parsons" Campbell. Lived in Auburn and then Minot Me. until I got married, have been in Rochester NH for 37 of my 53 years of Marriage. I'm interested in genealogy, cemeteries, and the Civil War in particular. Find A Grave, Ancestry.com, RAOGK and NEHGS has put me in touch with my ancestors, old family friends, the towns where they were born, lived and died. This makes them real people that had real lives, some lived to be very old and other died far too young. Recently a kind lady sent me pictures of my Indiana relative's graves and their obituaries.Thank you Judy... Eileen Gloria...|

|RHO||RE: Wentworth graves|
I located young Wm. A Wentworth's burial site and added a few photographs to his memorial site (#181131450). His individual grave is unmarked, but he is buried with the Jackson Gordon family (#181120397). His site is located DIRECTLY across from Lydia Wentworth's family plot. The only family connection I can guess between the Gordon's and the Wentworth's is that Jackson Gordon's wife's maiden name was Fish and that Lydia's daughter's married name was also Fish. However, I'll leave it to you to discover the true reason for young William's burial location. I've also linked William to his parents (David and Charlotte). As for young Lydia ~ she was buried in a group location along with many children, infants, & stillbirths where none of these many burials have any markings.

I was at Bellevue Cemetery yesterday, but could not find a marker as easily as I anticipated. I will try again near Memorial day. I hope not, but there is the possibility there are no grave stones or markers for the Wentworths. If that is the case I will take a photo of the exact plot. Fingers crossed.

Eileen, Will do. I've been slow to get to Bellevue again due to weather being absolutely miserable, rainy & cold. Should be able to give it another try within a week.

|RHO||RE: Lydia Cushing|
Eileen, I'm glad you found the card of value. She is buried in the oldest part of the cemetery. Many times the stones there are missing or unreadable. At a minimum, I will find the lot and take a photo.
Per the card:
Infant Wentworth died 7/15/1866 @ age 6 mos old; Everet died Jul 14, 1862 @ 3 yrs, 9 mos, & 5 days;
Clara died Oct 19, 1852 @ 0 yrs, 11 mos, & 1 day;
Olive died May 19, 1900 @ 52 yrs, 2 mos, & 11 days;

I was not able to locate her site on a first pass, but will try again. For now, I've posted her Internment card to her memorial which reveals location & other family members buried with her.

Eileen- I do not have any information on these memorials.
|Jacquelyn Elizabeth Knight Aubrey||RE: Arno|
Hi Eileen, I don't remember if I replied to your question or not. Yes, you did send me the photo with WJA in the picture. Thanks. We are still searching....no luck yet. We went out again today to chase down a lead. Struck out! Discouraging....
|DWB||Ralph William Emerson|
Thank you for the nice comments you left on the memorial of Ralph William "Tommy" Emerson (#53753202). He was my grand uncle. Do you have any stories you could share with me about my family?

She well could be one and the same, since the census records show her father, Nathaniel, and children of hers living with William Arno in 1880. I found one record stating that William died in Dexter, so am not too sure where he might be buried as yet.
I do know Irena's first husband, Aaron Sanborn, was buried across the Kennebec River from Caratunk, in Carrying Place Plantation in 1871. That particular township was abandoned and the land is now owned by CMP. The grave stone for Aaron and his son, Nathaniel, was still on the site of the former township and is difficult to get to now.
