Elizabeth Bastable
Hi Bill,

I visited the cemetery office today and the superintendent was very helpful. He looked up the record for Elizabeth and identified her plot location as Section "T" on the map, it is the older area of the cemetery were single graves are location and is on Harding Avenue (the online records state Section C, Lot 68 Harding Ave. Range G - but he explained this is within Section T).

I spent some time in that section and there are clearly many stones missing, and some were simply unreadable. I did not see anything for Elizabeth or for the infant James Long buried there.

I will continue to look for Elizabeth and James as I continue to photograph Mt. Feake, hopefully I will find them one day.

Elizabeth Bastable
Hi William,

I have been to Mount Feake several times in search of Elizabeth and have yet to find her. As someone mentioned below, the plot is listed as Section C Lot 68 Harding Avenue - Range G - this section has much newer burials than early 1900's so I think there could be an error, I will continue to look for her and will try to visit during the time when the office is open to see if they can assist.

Also buried in this plot according to the online records is an infant James Long, son of Arthur Long and Mary MacDonald who lived in Belmont, MA. so I am looking for his stone as well.

Here is the marriage record I found for Elizabeth in case you don't have it
marriage: 10 Jan 1850 Tralee, Kerry, Ire
groom's name: Arthur Bastable
bride's name: Elizabeth Britton
marriage date: 10 Jan 1850
marriage place: Tralee, Kerry, Ire
groom's father's name: Edward Bastable
bride's father's name: William Britton

Note: Elizabeth's father's name is listed as Thomas Britton on her death certificate.

I also found her in the 1900 census living with her daughter Susana and husband Henry Maynard in Waltham, with a nephew Arthur Long aged 21.

There still a good 1' of snow in this section. Last weekend only the tip was visible. A lot of sun does wonders. I enjoyed my walk threw the snow. I have marked it so I can take it again in the spring.

Eliza Bastable Memorial # 11460544
Hi Bill,

I saw your post from April 2010 to Jean Baker regarding Eliza Bastable. She is buried in Section C, Lot 68, Harding Avenue - Range G. Just wanted to let you know that an infant named James Long is also buried with her. James died 02/12/1914. No year of birth is listed on the record.

I do not believe her husband Arthur is buried at Mt. Feake as they coukd not locate a record for him when I called.

I also saw that you have a photo request in for Eliza's gravesite. If you go back to the photo request, remove it then request it again, you can enter the plot location as a note on the request. This may help you get a photo sooner. Good Luck!

I tried to contact you via an old post with no luck. Eliza Bastables is my GGGGrandmother. I am really interested in the letter that was sent to her son Arthur in Cah'veen Ireland to inform him of her death as I believe that he is the only one that stayed in Ireland. Arthurs brother Thomas died in 1888 shortly after arriving in the US and a custody battle started with her Grandchildren because Eliza was CoI and her daughter in law (Margaret O'Connell) was Catholic. Thomas's son was also Arthur Francis Bastable (my GGrandfather). What is really difficult is that every generation had an Arthur, Edward, and Thomas. Any idea what happened to Eliza's husband Arthur?

I won't be able to get this picture until April at the earliest. We have almost 4 feet of snow on the ground with more falling. Could you please remind me again in the spring?
