See husband for some details.

In looking for who this stone might be for, I checked the transcript of the cemetery.
I found:
Thaxter, Roy born Oct. 31,1881, died Oct. 7, 1967
Sabrina (Mother) died Dec. 17, 1940 age 91 yrs.
Amy, dau. Born April 7th 1878 and died Jan 12,1965

This would mean that Sabrina was born abt.1849. I have not entered that as I next found this:

1900 Census for Machias, Washington, Maine:
Sabrina A. Thaxter, age 49 (born Oct. 1850) (which is close). born in Maine, living in Machias,Maine who is Married in 1878
and was married for 22 yrs. she has 4 children, 3 of which is alive. She is working as a housekeeper for Sargent family.

1910 Census for Machias, Washington, Maine:
Sabrina A. Thaxter is age 62 born abt 1848 (so this must be an error??) She is a Servant for Kelker family and has two children with her. Addie age 12 and Roy W age 29. So>>>>
Where were the kids in 1900. will check under her husband to see what I can find.

Found: U. City Directory for 1941 (this is after her death)
for Boston, Mass.
Eben B., Frank O. J. Howard, Jos B., Keniston, Maie, Sabrina A. (wid of George) died Dec. 17, 1940.

1940 Directory is confusing also: Listed Under Gansborough crosses in Boston city Directory is:
#36, Thaxter, Sabrina Mrs.

listed in 1935 & 1936 (also Boston):
Sabrina Thaxter, living at 87 St. Stephen.

In 1933 she was living at 112 Myrtle in Boston. so these may be her or a different Sabrina???? There are more, I won't list them all.
