Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Beverly, Mass into a family that took grave tending very seriously. Many of my earliest memories are of being with my parents planting flowers and tending the graves of many past family members. In my elementary school years I would walk through the Central Cemetery morning and evening every day to get to school and back. The only thing that ever bothered me was seeing stones where the names were either gone or almost gone. It is the loss of a person all over again. I would like to play a small part in preserving some of these links to the past.

RE: Brewster Lot

Dick If it interests you and you care to poke around there ...

I posted this message for Marie Hayes and will repeat it for you:
According to the main office @ Calvary Cemetery, there are seven family members resting in that plot including William Havens Brewster ..., but no year or date of burial was ever entered in the cemetery log.
The others are Mary (his wife); Harold Brewster (their son) no info recorded, but he died on 3.15.1925, age 17; Harris (Brewster?), no info recorded; Raymond Brewster (their son), died in 1973; and Herbert and Anna (Brewster) Barnhart (their son-in-law and daughter), died in 1985 and 1975 respectively.

RE: Brewster

Dick I sent additional info re George last week (using the edit tab). Do those edit suggestions go directly to you?

I agree about the sunken footstones @ S.J., and have periodically requested re-sets (which they're pretty good at doing). They do make an effort each summer (starting in late spring) to weedwhack the flats stones and uncover buried ones, which is helpful. Still can't understand, however, why they don't have computerized records at that office.
FYI: I have a record of all interments, including grave locations, 1956 to about 1967/68; my grandfather's handwritten memo-book (from when he was the superintendent there, working for the church). It's come in handy on a few occasions and I took time to copy the original pages and give them to the staff there.

Re George Brewster's obit ...
It can be accessed online (but I can't c&p it); will email the link to you.

re: George R. Brewster

Regarding your assumption that this man may have been related to William Havens Brewster and Mary (Brady) Brewster ...

Indeed, he was their son.
[One of his sisters was married to a Barnhardt.]

I saw the same monument (after you visited and unearthed George's footstone).

Sent some edit-info for George's memorial, taken from his obit which can be found online in the Naugatuck Daily News for 9/28/65 (front page).

I'll post a note to the contributor who's looking for info on William and Mary Brewster.

Mary Brewster
Thanks for looking for the headstone of Mary Brewster. I am not sure if George is her son. I do not know of a relationship with the Barnhart's.

Ludwika Nowociesnki Grave Photo
Thank you so very Much for taking the time and making the effort to find and photograph Ludwika's grave. When I attempted to find and photograph the grave, and asked the people in the cemetery office for the location of the grave, couldn't find any records for it. Thanks again for your help.
