Tombstone Tuesday - the Seaver Family Stone

My paternal grandparents, Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942) and Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962) are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Leominster, Worcester County, Massachusetts.

I have visited this gravesite several times over the last 42 years. The stone is very simple, with the face looking north toward Highway 2. This picture was, of course, taken looking south, and picked up some of the family members milling around when I took the picture:


Their son, Stanley Richmond Seaver (1905-1910) was also buried in this plot. My aunt, Geraldine (Seaver) Remley (1917-2007) was buried in this plot last year. I need to go back to Evergreen Cemetery in order to get an up-to-date photograph of the stone with her name on it.

Randy ~ Why don't you see if there is a volunteer w/RAOGK in the area to take a picture for you? Just might be one. . . . .
