May 19, 2015: A Rainy Visit to South Easton Cemetery

Today, I went with Olive (Leonard) Bryan, and her husband, Joe, to South Easton Cemetery in South Easton, Massachusetts. Olive is my first cousin, 2x removed. Her mother, Elsie Jean (Monroe) Leonard, and my great-grandmother, Maud M. (Monroe) McRae, were sisters.

South Easton Cemetery is where Maud, Elsie, their parents, Harvey D. Monroe and Olive Florence Feener, and Elsie's husband, George Harold Leonard, are buried.

Also buried in the cemetery are James Lemuel Feener (Maud and Elsie's brother), his wife Rosella Douglas, and Olive Monroe's sister, Maud May (Feener) Abbe (who was the namesake for my great-grandmother).

While I was there, I photographed the Monroe grave, where Maud, Harvey, and Olive are buried, as well as the Leonard grave, where George and Elsie are buried. Despite the weather, it was still nice to be able to visit their graves. Thank you Olive and Joe for bringing me along!
