I grew up in Maine, and now live in NH. The main goal of my cemetery visits is finding my ancestors and their collateral families, as well as seeking out the burial places of the soldiers from the 27th Maine Volunteers. I will also photograph all known Civil War veterans within the cemeteries I walk and, being the historian for NALF (National Association of Leavitt Families), I'm also looking for all Leavitt graves out there!
See you in the graveyards! Steve member, MOCA and NHOGA
RE: Charles P. Sanborn Happy to help, Steve. I admire the work you are doing. There are many Civil War veterans buried in Edson Cemetery, my g. grandfather among them. And thanks for letting me know that Helen is buried in 4519 as well. There are also markers there for Willie Sanborn and wife Frances Sanborn. Marker states that Willie was a veteran of the Spanish American War. Would you like me to make memorials for them?
I claimed the photo request for Helen Sanborn that was entered by Norman Dodge. Once I have information from the cemetery office that Helen is also buried in Lot 4519, I will be adding photos to her page as well.
I had to visit Edson Cemetery today and since you had the plot number listed for Charles, I took a photo of his monument. Note that the monument has him as a Corporal in Co. H rather than a Private in Co K.
