|K Berry & JGBC||Geraldine Berry|
My son explained how we had to photograph your Geraldine Berry because it was my GM's name as well. He didn't mention, our Berry's were in New England(Massachusetts mostly) from 1650's until the turn of the 20th century. I poked around and saw you were researching Berry's in Maine, which was Massachusetts until the 1820's. Can you tell me the name and dates and known local of your oldest Berry family member in New England? I have a vast amount on my Berry's in N.E. Perhaps we are related.
Let me know.
Have a great day.

No! Funny enough my grandmother's name was Geraldine (Larson) Berry and when we were walking along through Pacific Crest fulfilling photo requests one day, saw the stone and just had to take a picture of it to upload.... :-)
If you have any other relative there we volunteer there so let me know if you need photos or records...
|Linda W||Joseph C Berry|
Although there is no way to identify the markers of the deceased as the paperwork connecting the person buried with a name and number have been destroyed, I did find some additional information regarding Joseph. Sixty-three when he dies of chronic bronchitis on 8/21/1893, his occupation is listed as a barber.
Born in Maine heis buried in the Pauper's cemetery across the street from Tewksbury State Hospital.
Frequently when folks were chronically ill in this area they were taken to Tewksbury State Hospital which was an Almshouse in the day. He may have had TB as many folks there died of TB even though his death is listed as from chronic bronchitis, medical knowledge was limited back then.
Anne Sullivan who was Helen Keller's teacher spent time there with her brother Jimmy, who died of TB of the hip. The conditions were not very good. If would like more pictures I can send some of the area. Just let me know.

Sad to say, Their is no headstone for Charles. He is buried in a well marked plot with stones. He is next to a John C Watson. I have uploaded a photo of the space he is in... it is marked with blue flowers.
