Today we met the great and great great granddaughters of Alexander M. Benson. They were searching for information and found a link to the Clark’s Cemetery Facebook page with the recent information that was posted about this long lost ancestor. Alexander M. Benson was one our latest projects, and until the other day, he wasn’t in Find A Grave. Since they still live in New England they made a quick trip to Gloucester and were thrilled to see Alex’s very fine monument. Connecting the living to the beloved family of the past is very thrilling for us. We will continue to post stories about the “residents” of Clark’s Cemetery as we work on their tombstones.
Now if someone in Missouri would find my great great grandmother for me, I would really appreciate it. Her name was Mary Ann “Polly” Garrison, wife of Brown Garrison.
