Caleb S. Choate was the son of John Choate and Clarinda Fatima Wells Choate. Caleb married Lee Vernie Norrod on 7 May 1899 and together they had 5 children. Lillian Choate Dell 1900-1987; Livius Choate 1909-1910; Lucian Choate 1911-1993; Julian Choate 1912-1981 and Orlean Choate 1914-1974.

After a long search for the resting place of Caleb, Lee Vernie and their son Livius, I found that the cemetery had built its own website and that they have a search feature which came in very handy to locate the graves of these three.
