"Pam, It is interesting to note that the Chalmette burial is a record of Simeon's second interment as he was originally buried in the Cypress Grove Cemetery. To find the answer you desire, it may be worth some research through the cemetery…"

Chris Dunham replied to Alex W Magocsi's discussion 'William M Cushman'
"That is a hard question. As he was a professional man, his death might have mentioned in a Portland newspaper. I wonder if the date of his death had anything to do with his place of burial. Since he died in January, it would have been difficult to…"

George W Berry, York, Maine

 George Washington Berry drowned in Portland Harbor on 6 February, 1863.  He was a soldier in the 17th U.S. Infantry, the "regular" army, and was crossing with other members of his unit from Fort Preble to Fort Scammell, at night, in a raging storm.  They had been ordered to make the crossing and it is unknown if the person who gave that order was punished.  I suspect not.In any case, 2-1/2 months after the incident, the Cumberland County coroner viewed the body so we know it was recovered. I…See More
