RE: Maranda Bates Hawhins
Hi Joe,
Her name is not Hawkins. There are no Hawkins in the Bates' family. Her married name was Day. Lorraine

RE: Maranda Bates Hawhins
Hi Joe,
The information I have comes from a book about Civil War veterans. It is attached to Horace Day's page on my Elhanan Bates tree on

I haven't looked for the cemetery or graves in Worcester. All I know is the information in the book. I can send you the reference. Contact me at

Maranda Day Photo Request
Joe, I asked again at the Hope Cemetery Office yesterday about Maranda. I had them check to see if they had any information under her maiden name Maranda Bates. Again, no record of her being buried in this cemetery under that name either. Sorry. Bob

You are welcome Joe. I know that most of us on Find A Grave have an insatiable desire to answer questions about our ancestors. It gives us great pleasure to help each other find some answers to those questions.

RE: Maranda Day Photo Request
Joe, Today I returned to the office at Hope Cemetery in Worcester. I requested the burial location for Maranda Day. They said they have no record of her burial in Hope Cemetery. As I indicated in our earlier communication regarding her husband Horace, there is no gravestone in the immediate area of his grave.

Is it possible she could be buried under another name or in a different cemetery? I'm aware the cemetery records back that far are not as complete as we would like. It is possible she is in Hope Cemetery and the office just has no record of it. Without additional info, I'm not sure how I can fulfill your request.

RE: Otis Baker # 55897321
Some of the cemetery records were destroyed in a fire which might explain why they didn't find anything. What are some of the names in the family lot? And do you know the plot location? We will be back in the cemetery this Friday and will try again. Of course, it is possible there is no marker for this person.
