Good morning,

I work in the office that oversees the Old English Cemetery where the Merrill's are interred. I posted the most recent pictures that we have of their monuments. There is also a monument for "Gertie" but I am not sure if that is the daughter that you have a memorial for (and Gertie was her nickname) or if this monument is for the granddaughter Gertie. The rest of the information on the stone is illegible. If you would like the picture please email me at and I will send it to you.

Thank you!

RE: Thank you!
No problem. I found a few more graves today that I need to post. I do not know where you live..... But in Salem we have a road named Cluff Crossing. Plus i think I read that a local builder is naming his new development. Clough woods
I have to think that the family was well known and well respected for those two things

You are very welcome. I hope to get back to the cemetery and possibly take another picture without a reflection in it.

I went to Mount Hope Cemetery today, in Lewiston, Maine to try and assist with locating the Horrigan monument(s). I ended up finding several, but not one of them had the names or dates you mentioned. Most were late 1800's early 1900's.

I checked the following sections:

George & Lettie (Clough) Hyde
I added Lettie, her parents and her brother headstones to the cemetery. If you would like me to transfer management to you please let me know.

RE: Thanks!
You are welcome. The records state more family is buried at the same plot, but there are no more markers. I will keep my eye out for other possible markers.
