I have done geneology for many year and find it very addicting.Ive been using F.A.G. for awhile and find it very useful and have met some great people that are understanding and very helpful and others not so understanding but this site is great and could not found what i have without it. I plan someday when time permits to photo and set up memorials myself. Would love to help people with thier family history. When i start and i have a memorial that is not part of my family i would have no problem transfering. I know what it means to take care of your own familys memorials. As of right now i am only involved with my familys memorials. If i have memorials that were transfered to me. If you feel the memorial is closer to your family i would have no problem transfering it. |
I do most of my searches for Lunts and other close family ancesters. My Lunt greatest grandfathers and families came from England to Newbury MA. settled to York ME. to Orono ME. to Plattsburgh NY. Some of the families remained in these area's but also settled in ME,MA,MI,MN,IL,WI,NY,CA,VT,ect. I have traveled to Newbury MA. to Orono ME. many times.I live in the VT,NY area would like to help anyone with info close by. F.A.G. and also myself feel everyone deserves a memorial!! Happy searching :)
*Feel free no problem to use any photos of mine for genealogy or family research with credit please. Most of my Civil War photos are from the NYS Military Museum. My hope is family can use them and ours and their descendants will always be remembered.
Couple of good books for Lunt research. (History Of The Lunt Family In America),(The Ancestry Of Abel Lunt)&(Freese Families 1749-1800) Freese book mentions a couple Lunt's that married into their family from Orono Me.
(Old Water Street Cemetery Orono Maine)
Note - The original Orono Maine cemetery was at the lower end of Water St. and Pine St. where the railroad station was built later and tracks laid. The cemetery became to small and was in the way of the railroad (European & North American Railroad) that planned to pass through town and railroad service started 1868. Thus the problem of moving bodies to Riverview Cemetery arose. 1850s started the removable of the remains. At a town meeting March 1867 to raise money for removable remaining of the bodies. It was noted that when the remains were removed some were too badly deteriorated to be removed and that some identifying markers were missing so were never removed. There are no complete records of burials in the old cemetery. Which presents a problem to genealogist who have information indicating that a certain person died in Orono but no records of an Orono burial can be found.

That would make alot more sense of why there is no trace of it now,didn't know they built tracks right over it.No sign of the train station anywhere in town either. Makes you wonder how many towns they did that too,thats not right at all.I give you a shout if i ever find out anything new about it,chances are no-one will ever know now.Thank-you for your input.Take it easy.

Was wondering where you got that wonderful photo.
I am related to the Scott's through their great grandfather, Capt. Jonathan Scott and Abigail Safford. My Robinson family along with the Scott's, Saffords, Fays, Harwood's ect were all close friends, family and neighbors in early Bennington. Thank you. Doug Robinson

Hi,we did look down there once a few years ago after reading the same book about Orono at the library and never saw any signs..We'll have to get ahold of the sexton and find out exactly where its located this spring.When we do i'll let you know if we find anything.My dad always talked about it also,but said there were is no sign of it today which is a shame that there isn't.We'll have to work on that to make sure it does get respected as a cemetary,nothing has been built there since.

Hello - I have a photo of the grave stone. However, I am not able to add it to the memorial unless a photo is removed. Would you please consider removing the cemetery photo so I can put the stone photo on? Thank you - Kimberly

Hi! thank you very much! Looks like that cemetery is much better maintained now...last time 20+ years ago it was much overgrown and I practically missed finding it. Happy :) God bless you!
|Larry McNear||RE: Mount Moriah Cemetery|
I really don't know if they have an index or not. I live in Ohio a little over 100 miles away. I have family buried there and try to get there once a year. I try to supply requested photos when I visit there. and you are welcome.
