Exactly! Thought I'd found the only one but a trip around the cemetery revealed one more. There are no traditional GAR markers (star-shaped) in the cemetery. Checked for possible link with GAR Ladies Auxiliary but nothing. Thinking that this may be a local chapter medallion. Am half tempted to catalog location and take to the state archives. The one shown here was sticking in a hole in the base of a tipped over stone but the woman buried there was not the wife of a soldier. May have been placed there by mowing crew.

Recently came across this GAR grave marker, one of only two in a very large cemetery. Can't seem to find anything similar to it online in an image search. The two cast iron markers are in front of the wive's gravestones of their Civil War Soldier husbands. Is this marker unique to Maine?

Greetings Chris!

My name is Renee Groleau, I live in MA, and I’m researching my family tree, along with my brother, and in doing so, a couple of branches have led me up to Maine – one being predominately, the Brickett family.

When Googling the name Alonzo B. Brickett, I came upon two pictures of gravestones that you took. That of Alonzo B. Brickett and Hannah B. Brickett and her husband Jonathan Herrick, in Chapel Cemetery, Norway, Oxford, County ME. Alonzo, I've discovered, is my 3rd great-uncle, and Hannah, my 3rd great-aunt. They were brother and sister. Their father was also named Alonzo B. Brickett. However, he's buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Portland, along with his wife and other children.


Along with seeing your pictures, we've come upon their death records, censuses and that of their brothers, sisters and parents and we’ve created memorial pages for the Brickett family on findagrave.com and obtained transfers from a couple people who already created pages before us.

The reason why I write to you today, is to ask if we could use the two pictures that you took, of Alonzo Jr.'s and Hannah's graves, on findagrave.com, on the pages we have for them? We would give you credit on each of their page and we'd be most appreciative if you grant this to us! If you wish not to share, we completely understand!

As they say, it doesn’t hurt to ask, and nothing ventured, is nothing gained...

Sincerely, & with kind regards,

Renee G.

I had trouble opening several Universalist and one Methodist church article.  As near as I can tell the problem obtains for all on the list.

In your column for Aug. 4, 2010 you list various churches for which there are articles in the Lewiston Eve. Journal.  I have looked at several and find them unreadable and unprintable.  Do you know what procedure may open them up?
