|Southport Cemetery Ladies||Elizabeth Maddocks Rand|
Elizabeth has a birth record that I found on ancestry. It has her birth date of 9/25/1812 and her parents listed as Pellegrove and Roanna Maddocks. I know that the spelling is off, but I think that is the correct family. Another record has her marrying Mark Rand in 1834. I haven't quite figured out his life. It seems that he was married twice.
As to Elizabeth Pierce-I see what you mean about her name being in two places. I wonder if her grave is in the Old Burying Ground and she is just memorialized along with her husband on the obelisk in Union.
I didn't want to add Elizabeth as a child until we agree.

|Tolford Young||RE: Zenas Maddocks - Swanville, Maine|
Michael, you have been of inestimable help in locating the burial places & gravestones of our long-lost ancestors.
My cousin Shirley Knox was the person most interested in finding Zenas' resting place, but she herself has gone to hers recently.
But...there are a few of the more recent generation, descendants from Myra & Zenas, to whom I will send this message. I know definitely that they, too, much appreciate your dedication to the Find-a-Grave effort.
|Val Lovelace||RE: Olive E. (Maddocks) Jackson - Ocean View Cemetery, Boothbay, ME|
Excellent, Mike, thanks. I looked into Robert Wylie's Rootsweb WorldConnect database and found Olive Eleanor Maddocks listed there as the daughter of Joseph Maddocks and Harriet Elizabeth Thompson (see http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=coyote1&id=I1928). She married Joseph Willard Jackson. This looks like your Olive E. If you follw this link then select either of her parents, you'll see the 8 kids listed, including Luther. Good sleuthing! I'll link her to her dad...maybe we'll end up getting the whole family connected one day.

Here is another response I received from the Lindquist Funeral Home.
Today I received a call from Judy at Brooklawn Memorial Park in Portland . She had received your inquiry regarding the burial location of Katherine Benousky.
I found this quite curious because I work here at Lindquist Funeral Home in Yarmouth, ME and Katherine Benousky was my father's aunt. I also was curious as to why you were looking for this information? I get the impression that you are looking into this for someone else?
As a result of our conversation I pulled the files for Katherine Benousky and for her daughter Diane Thompson. The following explanation is a result of what I already knew and what I found in their files.
1. Both Katherine Benousky and her daughter Diane Joy Thompson were cremated at Brooklawn Memorial Park in Portland.
2. Katherine Benousky's cremated remains were returned to her daughter Diane Thompson on 2/7/1997.
3. I happen to be friends with the family who at the time lived next door to Diane and "Aunt Kate" and they handled the arrangements for Diane.
I did not know them at the time but we have since discussed it and they told me that Diane kept her mother's cremated remains at the house.
I believe that after Diane passed, her mother's cremated remains were placed together with Diane's.
4. Diane Joy Thompson died August 27, 1999 in Portland, Maine at MMC. She was cremated at Brooklawn. Her file here at Lindquist Funeral Home
Shows "Authorization to Calvary Cemetery to Perform Interment" dated 9/14/1999
5. Now the connection to the plot at Calvary Cemetery is this: Diane Thompson was married twice. Her first husband was Edward T. Talbot and HE IS BURIED
AT CALVARY. His lot# is 338A in St. Catherine section of Calvary Cemetery (1461 Broadway, South Portland, ME ) The phone # at Calvary is 773-5796.
Diane's second husband was Robert W. Thompson and he died in 1989. The note here at Lindquist on Diane's folder says "Disposition of Cremated Remains:
Calvary Cemetery – 2nd grave next to Edward Talbot – inter w/mother's cremains on this grave"
6. I do not know if there is a monument, stone or marker for either Katherine Benousky or Diane Thompson. It would not surprise me if there is none, because
They did not have much money and there are no children as survivors. There is a note on Diane's folder "Flush marker on Mr. Talbots lot
*to be purchased by Diane 10/27/98 – to date (10-27-98) No urn requirements. " The reason these notes dated before Diane's death are there is because the folder was created when she did a pre-planning session with Lindquist Funeral Home for herself. The hand written note on the folder says Grave Lot#338A St. Catherine section but I noticed that on the note about Edward Talbot being Her first husband it is written as Lot 337 A in St. Catherine Section.
7. One other piece of information that I will pass on to you is that Diane was a bit paranoid near the end of her life and she did not want the "family/relatives" to know where they were nor that they had even died. She therefore did not have an obit printed in the newspapers. The neighbor told me that they had a hard time tracking down who the relatives were,
In an effort to notify them….because Diane purposely did not give them the information. It is interesting to me that it was difficult because there was a sister to Katherine Benousky
living in the same town of Yarmouth at the time as well as my father (cousin) living in Cumberland and several other cousins locally.
Hopefully this information will be helpful to you. I also would like to stress that you were not really misinformed by the town of Yarmouth nor by the Brooklawn associates.
Technically the act of cremation is in fact considered the method of Disposition. Therefore on the burial permit or death certificate the town records will show the Crematory, in this case Brooklawn, as the final resting place. The truth of the matter is that the crematory hardly ever is the one to retain custody of the cremated remains. Many times family members will
accept the "cremains" to be scattered and then we lose track at that point as far as looking for cemetery information. So the town of Yarmouth would inform you that Brooklawn would be listed as the place of disposition. The fact that it is a crematory as well as a cemetery does not automatically indicate that the decedent was buried at that location.
If you would like to contact me personally (as a relative) regarding "Aunt Kate" or "Cousin Diane" my email address is email@example.com

|Peter Morgan||RE: Katherine H Carleton Benousky|
Here is the response I received from Brooklawn regarding Katherine:
Hello Peter. My name is Judy and I work here at Brooklawn. I found lot owners Andrew F. & Evelyn M. Tousher owning on M-866-C-1,2,3,4. Interred there is Sophie Tousher, Fred Tousher, Andrew F. Tousher, and Evelyn M. Carleton Tousher. We get many phone calls from people looking for loved ones because we are listed on the death certificate. By chance was Katherine cremated. We have a crematory here and if she was cremated we would be listed on her death certificate. I would call the funeral home listed as well and they can tell you where she is interred. I looked again for her name but please if there is another way to spell her last name just let me know I would be happy to help. Thank you. Judy
Let me know if I can do anything. I am happy to go out to the cemetery and take a photo of Plot M-866 if you wish.

You are right! I didn't look at the dates. I saw his mother and father's names and jumped to a conclusion. Maybe his father is Gilbert R. (The marker says that he is a Gibby too as mentioned in the Gilbert S obit. Gilbert S was only 15. Sad
This is Gilbert S Bryant's obit
