At a cemetery, lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life - not death - of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living. A cemetery is a history of people; a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
A cemetery exists because every life is worth remembering - always.

Annie Laura Gough Her father is unknown. Elizabeth frost married Joseph Gough, had two boys and he abandoned them. This was in Nova Scotia. She farmed the boys out and moved to Eastport, ME. She got pregnant and as soon as Annie was born she was given to Charles Bogart and family to raise as their own. Elizabeth Frost headed west for a new live. I did find her in a census in Boston, MA in 1865 working as a servant. She never appeared in another census record in New England.
Annie Laura Gough West This is my great grandmother and her death certificate doesn't quite tell the truth. She had asthma and the only treatment at that time was morphine. She actually died of an overdose. When she died she was divorced from Elijah Maxwell West.

Glidden memorial Thank you for the additional information on Ruth (Greenway) Glidden, and her son Steven. It is nice that people share information that they may have in addition to photographs, thank you for taking that extra effort - it is appreciated. - Ron Glidden
I will be sure to keep checking on the marker when I visit Calvary now that I found the location, and will update you when it is engraved. Will do the same for Capt. Benson, although I do find it strange that he doesn't even have a military marker, and that his mother has been there since 1989 with no marker at all. Thanks!
