Village Cemetery, Elmore, VT
Check the cemetery for location/directions and other veterans who may be buried there.
Wolcott--The remains of old Mr. Stephen Brown has been taken up, and his son-in-law, Siolam Gates, is to accompany them West, to Toledo, where they are to be re-interred
Most of Mr. Brown's relatives now live West. His wife was buried at Toledo, and surviving friends, with a remembrance and faithfulness to the dead that is, alas too often found wanting, are gathering the relics together that kindred dust may mould side by side.
Though it may seem to be no matter what becomes of our body after we die, yet all, while living, hope to be remembered when dead, and no doubt, many feel a desire to sleep the last sleep beside those they cherished while living.
