Cemetery Plot Undergoes Transformation Thanks to Dedicated Volunteers

When we first tried to locate the grave of Isaac B. Carr at Bellevue Cemetery in Lawrence, MA, it was quite a challenge as the grave was located in a section of the cemetery that was overgrown. However, our perseverance led to the discovery of the grave amidst the weeds and brush. The small footstones were no longer in their original positions, and one was not visible at all during this first visit.





Volunteers, Paul and Earlene Daigneault, accepted the challenge and not only cleared the Carr plot, which is visible in the background of the photo below, but cleared the weeds and brush all the way to the cemetery road, exposing the roadside plot as well.



According to cemetery records, the last of six burials in this plot was Isaac B. Carr, Musician in the 2nd Vermont Infantry. The other five burials occurred between 1865 and 1885. After clearing the plot and placing the small stones back on their bases as shown in the photos above, one can now visualize what this plot looked like years ago.
