Remarks: Sixty-two years ago, in 1955, Bob Mashia helped his grandfather plant a lilac bush at the grave-site of his great-grandfather. Two years ago, Bob came up from his home in Chicopee, Mass., and found his great-grandfather's grave practically hidden by brush and a fallen tree (1st picture). Two hours later, he had cleared the site and Stephen's gravestone is now easily found (2nd picture).
