I enjoy walking around Vermont cemeteries and specifically locating Civil War Veterans to contribute to Vermont In The Civil War website http://vermontcivilwar.org/index.php But when I am in a cemetery I find any excuse to linger and take a few extra photos, hoping that a link to family will be made. If you discover a relative amongst the memorials I have located, feel free to contact me about transfer. I am glad to hear from anyone that can add to information or clarify dates and relations. Please cite the source of any information you send me. Happy Trails!|

Nice pictures :) I created memorials for Hiram and Willie Bailey from their obits and a bit of info from one of UVM's Historical Burlington sites. I'll see what I can find for the rest of the family. Deb

family bibles - quite a wonderful find! The info on Walter Carpenter's 3 marriages came from "History of Chittenden County, Vermont..." edited by William S. Rann (1886). Also, Dr. Walter Carpenter's will, dated August 1, 1890 and updated in 1892 leaves much of his estate "... to my beloved wife, Addie T. Carpenter" and to "my son, Benjamin Walter Carpenter". I know many records refer to the younger Dr. Carpenter as Walter Benjamin, but the elder Walter's will refers to him as Benjamin Walter. And, as one of the exectors, the son signed the probate files "Benjamin W Carpenter". In any case, the will seems to make it clear that Addie was married to Dr. Walter Carpenter at the time of his death in 1892. Haven't read all 88 pages of the probate records yet, though... anyway, let me know what you think. -Deb

Sabina, may I have permission to use your photo of LeRoy C. Davis on a Tree I'm building for DAVIS in Vermont, on Ancestry.com. I will of course site you with a photo courtesy. Thank you for your consideration. Diane

Hi Sabina - Thanks for the info on Samuel Follett's Civil War service. vtcivilwar.org lists Virginia as his place of death, but the gravestone says he died in DC. One of the old newspapers I read included a letter from a Vermont officer listing all the Vermonters in Washington hospitals that week. He also noted that all but one of the "Washington hospitals" in his list were actually in Virginia. Couldn't find that article again tonight to verify whether I'd read it correctly, but statements like that officer's could explain why there's some confusion about DC/VA deaths. Per Find A Grave convention, I left his place of death as Washington because that's what is on the gravestone, but added a note to his bio that some sources suggest he died in Virginia. Maybe some further clarification will turn up. Hope to see you when Annie's history project gets rolling. - Deb

|Karen Huerta||RE: Evergreen Cemetery|
You are most welcome. It seems that this cemetery has not been photographed before as many of the requests were 2 years old. I will try to get out there more often and take more photos. Glad that the photos you requested came out to your satisfaction.

I have 2 other Sleeper headstones, Mary & Raymond. I will post later today. I believe they are family. Let me know if you want copies.
Thank you for the photo!
