VOLUME   II   UPDATES

(Additions   &   Corrections)



The “Additions and Corrections” appendix in Volume II allowed me to correct errors in Volume I and also add new information regarding a number of carvers treated in Volume I. Now that Volume II has appeared, I have begun to find some small errors in it as well as new information that didn’t make it into that volume. I therefore offer this Volume II “Additions & Corrections” page here.

The changes added so far are:

ADDITIONAL   GRAVESTONES   AND   BURIAL   GROUNDS:



On pp. 672-673 of Volume II, I added a list of a number of gravestones made by carvers treated in Volume II that I discovered on the Find A Grave website – but too late to have included them in the database on the flash drive accompanying Vol. II. (Almost all of these are in 27 burial grounds not listed in the database). To make it easier for you to add this data to the Excel database (and elsewhere) on the flash drive, I provide them for you here as well. You can copy all this and paste it all at once into the Excel spreadsheet on the flash drive (see below for instructions).

Burial Grounds:

180a. Burrillville, RI (Albee-Paine: Burrillville #6)

Gravestones:

NOTE: The Excel spreadsheet has 7 columns:

YEAR / SURNAME / FIRST NAME / TOWN / STATE / CEMETERY CODE / CARVER

You can integrate the new gravestone entries (listed below) with the others in the Excel spreadsheet on the flash drive. A problem arises, however, because when you copy whole line-rows into the spread sheet, you must leave TABS (not SPACES) between all the columns. So here is what you can do:

(1) Highlight the whole list (below) and "copy";
(2) Paste it all into a new word processing document;
(3) Use the "search for and replace" in your word processing application: search for all single blank spaces, replacing them with "left tabs";
(4) Highlight and copy this new version of the list;
(5) Go to the flash drive, open the Excel spreadsheet database, and scroll to the bottom (where blank rows begin to appear), and click on a far left empty box (under "Year of death");
(6) Then paste the list. It should all be arranged correctly into the 7 columns.

To make this work, however, I had to elminate blank spaces where 2 words were in 1 column/box: for example "North Smithfield" or "Soule, Coomer II"; you'll have to restores these spaces by hand;
Once you do a sort on the spreadsheet, all this new data will all be integrated with the existing data. HOWEVER, the cemetery codes with letters as well as numbers (e.g., 347a) will probably be placed AFTER all the codes with numbers only.

ALVAN WASHBURN:



          Alvan was one of the 3 stonecarving sons of Bildad Washburn (Ira and Elias were the other two). He is mentioned in Volume I: pp. 227, 238, 402 (although his year of birth is incorrectly listed in one place as 1782 rather than 1792).
          When Bartlett Adams (already established in Portland, ME) left in 1812 – not for Virginia, as Ralph Tucker believed (which I relayed in Volume I, p. 238) but for New Gloucester, ME , as Ron Romano discovered (as I reported in Volume II, p. 622) – he left his Portland shop in the hands of Alvan Washburn.
          I was not able to identify any stones that may have been carved by Alvan Washburn while he was in Portland (although Ron Romano may now be able to do so). However, I did recently find a little more about Alvan’s later life.
          There is a record of marriage between Alvan Washburn and Margaret Noble in Hamilton County, Ohio on May 11, 1808. Yet this record is the very first in the book. From the third record on, the dates run from 1816; and so I would guess the recorded date of this marriage is an error, and it really took place closer to 1816, not 1808. (Margaret would have been only 11 in 1808, but 19 in 1816.)
          And so Alvan Washburn probably made his way from Portland, ME to Ohio sometime between 1814 (when Bartlett Adams resumed control of his shop) and 1816. It was shortly after 1814 that Alvan’s brother Elias Washburn began working with Adams in Portland.
          Alvan and his wife were in Cincinnati for the 1820 US Census: There is one male aged 26-45 and one female aged 16-25. In 1820, Alvan would have been 28 and Margaret would have been 23. In the 1830 Census, Alvan (and Margaret) are living in Clark (Clinton Co.), Ohio, about 30 miles NE of Cincinnati. In 1840, they are still in Clark, but a woman aged 60-69 is living with them (Margaret’s mother, perhaps). In 1850, Alvan, aged 57, “stonecutter,” with real property assets of $8000 is living with Margaret, aged 52. Alvan is listed as having been born in Massachusetts, while Margaret is listed as having been born in Pennsylvania. I was unable to locate Alvan in the 1860 or 1870 Census.
          The executor for Margaret Washburn’s estate in 1880 was James F. Noble. He was the son of William Noble (1772-1827) and Elizabeth Reeder. William was the son of Robert Noble (b1735 in Lancaster, PA). After Robert died, his widow Mary and her six children (all born in Pennsylvania, including her sons William and John, moved to near Franklin, OH. William and Elizabeth had at least six children: Louis Reeder Noble (1806-1830), Willam Pinckney Noble (1808-1835), John Edward Noble (1809-1846), Amelia Noble (1811; born in Kentucky), James F. Noble (1817-1897) and Nathan Miller Noble (1818-1863). Amelia was born in Henderson, Kentucky, while James and Nathan were born in Ohio.
          Was Margaret Noble a daughter of William Noble and Elizabeth Reeder? She was born in Pennsylvania in about 1797; but her widowed mother and three other siblings could have been all born in Pennsylvania before they made their move to Ohio. William was born in 1772 and therefore was certainly old enough to have had a daughter born in 1797.
          Yet Robert also had a brother John (b1735), who married Margaret Hathorn. They had at least three sons: Samuel, William and John (b1763). Any of these three sons could have had a daughter Margaret (b1797), named after her grandmother. John came to Ohio before 1800.
          Alvan Washburn recorded his will on May 24 1865 (in Clinton Co., OH). He left half of his 249 acres and all of his personal property to his wife Margaret (they apparently had no children), and the proceeds from auctioning off the other half of his land were left to Urbana University, between Columbus and Dayton, which was founded in 1850 by the followers of Emanuel Swedenborg, including John Chapman (also known as “Johnny Appleseed”).
          Alvan Washburn died on October 6, 1868, and was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Lynchburg, Ohio. His wife Margaret’s probate was filed in Clinton Co., Ohio in December of 1880.
          The fact that Alvan Washburn was still a stonecutter in 1850 (where he is listed as such in the census), may indicate that he did indeed leave a body of gravestone work – in Maine and/or Ohio – that has yet to be identified. Perhaps the obelisk for William Noble (1827) in Cincinnati’s Spring Grove cemetery is his work. Noble was a relative of Alvan’s wife.

IRA WASHBURN:



          Judging both by the willows/urns and the lettering, the following 4 gravestones were carved by Ira Washburn (whom I discussed on pp. 185, 192, 597-99). All are in the Western Cemetery of Portland, ME:

1835 Jordan, Elizabeth Horton
1836 Knights, Helen Mar
1837 Sawyer, Samuel Waite
1838 Howell, Martha D.

          On p. 599, I suggested that Ira Washburn the stonecutter may have been the man of that name who died in Chelsea, MA in 1836. Given that the last two of these 4 stones are dated after 1836, this appears not to be the case.
          While I was not able to find any other record of Ira Washburn’s death, it appears that his widow Abigail Washburn was in the 1855 MA state census in Boston’s 3rd Ward. At age 55 (born in 1800), she was living with Abigail Hanson, age 30 (born in 1825), and William Hanson, age 7. In the 1865 MA state census, all three individuals are still living together in Boston (the 1st Ward). Abigail Hanson was probably Ira and Abigail Washburn’s daughter. Ira and Abigail also had a son Daniel, born in about 1826. Abigail Washburn, daughter of Moses Emerson and Abigail Allen, died in Cambridge, MA on August 18, 1876.
          So Ira Washburn must have died between 1838 (the date on the last of his gravestones I was able to find) and 1855.

RICHARD ADAMS  &  JOHN TAYLOR:



          On p. 41 of Vol. I, I noted that Richard Adams was still in Boston in 1824 with a property “vs. the Charles River Bridge.” At the time, Ira Washburn was working for him. In 1829, Washburn was still on Prince Street (where Adams also had his residence) and was taxed with John Taylor, journeyman stonecutter (or was Taylor holding Washburn’s property for him while Washburn was away?).
          I have since discovered that Richard Adams and John Taylor may have been in competition with one another briefly. Adams and Tayor had separate but simultaneous advertisements for their shops at the Charles River Bridge in July 1829 Boston Advertiser:



These dueling ads lasted for a couple months, but then Taylor moved to New Bedford in June of 1830. In 1834, Taylor is still at the same shop, but is an “agent” for a John Perkins.
          It’s possible that Ira Washburn went up to Portland just before 1829. But when Taylor opened his Charlestown shop, Adams may not have yet liquidated his own there and had to stave off the competition from Taylor. Taylor appears to have been forced out by this, moving to New Bedford soon after. Adams probably moved to Maine in about 1831.

EBENEZER  SOULE  III:



          I had surmised that Ebenezer Soule was always an employee of others – of Richard Adams in Charlestown, then Alpheus Cary, Jr. of Boston, then Eliphalet Dame in Newburyport, then (after Dame died in about 1823), Abel and Nathaniel Davis in Newburyport. Abel Davis was certainly in Newburyport from at least December of 1824, when he married there. He probably acquired Dame’s shop, for they were both on Merrimac Street. But I found an advertisement placed by Ebenezer Soule III in the 26 May 1826 issue of the Newburyport Herald, with an address on Titcomb St. -- indicating his independent status:



          This should not be a surprise, for Ebenezer Soule was paid for gravestones in probate payments 7 times, dated 1823, 1824, 1825, 1827(2), 1828 and 1829. Soule also signed a stone dated 1827 “E. Soule.”
          Yet there is also evidence that Soule worked with the Davis brothers: There is a stone dated 1824 that was carved by Soule, inscribed by Abel Davis and signed by Abel & Nathaniel Davis. This must be backdated, since Nathaniel didn’t arrive in Newburyport until 1826. There is also another stone dated 1829 that was carved by Soule, but inscribed by Abel Davis.
          It’s difficult to interpret the connection between Soule and the Davis shop. Was it an off-again/on-again employment? Or an occasional collaboration?

ALSO: In the September 16, 1845 issue of the Newburyport Herald, the death of Ebenezer Soule “at the Alms-House,” aged 60, is recorded. He was therefore probably without family at the time, and destitute.

WILLIAM  LAMSON,  SR.  vs.  JOHN  GAUD:



          In chapter 2, which focused on the 3rd and 4th generations of the Lamson family of stonecutters who resided in Charlestown, MA, I included a short addendum (pp. 88-91) on two members of the family who came to live in Connecticut. The second generation Nathaniel and Caleb Lamson I had a brother William (1694-1755) who moved to Stratford, CT in 1717. William’s son William Jr. was born in Statford in 1719 and probably died in New Milford, CT in1795. There was at least one probate payment for gravestones to a William Lamson, for a Stratford resident who died in 1751. This stone was not located.
          Besides a set of red sandstone markers (I listed 39 of these) that may well have been carved by William Jr. (a set that Ralph Tucker also attributed to him), I also suggested that an earlier set of different stones (I listed 20, about half of them in Stratford), may have been carved by William Sr. The dates on this smaller set do not extend beyond the 1740s.
          I only just recently discovered, however, that Theodore Chase and Laurel Gabel (1997 [1990]; see bibliography in my Vol. II) had attributed at least some of the stones of this type to the early Boston stonecutter John Gaud (1693-1750).
          I suggested that William Lamson, Sr. may have carved the stone for Elizabeth Hull (1738) in Derby, CT. This is Fig 2.114 in Vol. II (used with permission by Steven Smith). Yet Chase & Gabel reported that the stone for Joseph Beard (1732) in Milford, CT was specifically probated to John Gaud. See the findagrave image at: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/find-a-grave-prod/photos/2011/106/23232950_130306809819.jpg Although a little difficult to make out, the details on the Beard stone (especially the lettering!) are a good match to those on the Hull marker. This is enough for me to retract my original suggestion that William Lamson, Sr. may have carved the stones of this set. Given the number of these stones in Stratford, where William and his son were living, however, we can wonder whether Gaud and Lamson may have has an association.
          Chase and Gabel’s article does not have an image of the Beard stone, and I was initially suspicious of giving the set of 20 stones I noted to Gaud, given the fact that the stones Chase & Gabel do show have the skulls’ wing-tips rather flat on the tympanum, have little decoration over the skull and rather prosaic borders – whereas the 20 Connecticut stones I noted have wing-tips that curl up, greater decoration over the skull and somewhat more ornate borders. Also, the Gaud examples in Boston appear to have capitals-only lettering, while some Connecticut stones have lower case as well. Yet this could be explained by the fact that this was a somewhat later period of Gaud's style, and he could have altered it in this way. (I should note that Chase and Gabel reported that they had identified about 150 of such stones.)
          It is interesting, by the way, that William Lamson Jr.’s production begins as Gaud’s ends. Yet William Jr.’s designs resemble those of other Lamson carvers who shipped their stones to Connnecticut from Charlestown rather than Gaud’s. That is, William Jr. could have easily copied his two uncles' styles from the stones that were all around him in this area of Connecticut.
          It all comes down to the probated Beard stone – which is quite like those in the set of 20.
          What about the fact that the gravestone for John Gaud himself was itself one of the group attributed to John Gaud? There are other cases of a carver's own stone having been carved by him before his death and then lettered by someone else. The fact that the lettering on the stone for John Gaud's stone is not John Gaud's, in fact, is more evidence that it was John Gaud who carved the entire set.
          The fact that the life spans of William Lamson Sr. and John Gaud were almost identical, and the fact that many of these stones were found in Stratford, CT (where William Lamson Sr. resided) combined to lead me to an erroneous supposition. I can only hope that there are no more such errors in Volume II.
          You should, by the way, change the carver ascription for this set of 20 stones listed in the spreadsheet database and the carver lists from "Lamson, William Sr." to "Gaud, John."

ADDITIONAL   GRAVESTONES   AND   BURIAL   GROUNDS
MARTHA'S   VINEYARD   &  NANTUCKET



          In the course of my research for Volume II, I concentrated on burial grounds likely to have the work of the specific carvers I was targeting. Yet I could not revisit, certainly, all of the 3500 burial grounds noted in the gravestone database of over 22,000 stones.
          While I was fortunate to able to rely on the Find A Grave website to fill in many blanks, I did neglect some areas. I did not personally, for example, return to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard to check more carefully what the extent of the Soule family’s contribution there. And I simply forgot to check Find A Grave for Soule stones on the two islands.
          What I provide here, therefore, are an additional 100 stones on the islands not contained in the spreadsheet database accompanying Volume II. About 70 of this total were carved by 3 Soules: Beza Sr. (49), Ebenezer Jr. (19) and Asaph (3). There are also 11 John Homer stones.

ROBERT  HOPE    &  THOMAS  JEFFERSON?



          In Vol. I, I discussed George T. Hope (c1781-1826) and (his brother?) Robert Hope (c1772-1818), two Boston stonecutters born in England. Early in their careers, they probably both spent some time in the shop of Bartlett Adams (1776-1828) in Portland, ME.
          In Vol. II (p. 611), I noted the stone Robert Hope carved in Portland for his two infant children: Robert A. Hope (died in Virginia in 1802) and William I. Hope (died in Portland in 1806). (The image of this stone [IV.45] was supplied to me by Ron Romano.)
          I recently came across an online site of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation that lists the 100 free workmen employed by Jefferson at Monticello. The list included a Robert Hope, stonemason, 1803 (as well as a Michael Hope, stonemason, 1802-1805).

GEORGE  LUDWIG  GEYER



          I noted on p. 14 that George Ludwig Geyer was paid for gravestones from the estate of Joseph Houghton, who died in 1777. This was the only probate payment for gravestones to George Ludwig that I found. I was unable to find the gravestone for Joseph Houghton. I did note, however, that George Ludwig did carve the stone for Joseph Houghton’s second wife, Ruth (Vose) Houghton, who died in 1772.
          Given that I ascribed no stones to George Ludwig dated between 1772 and 1777, I should have considered another possibility – that the stone for which George Ludwig was paid in Joseph Houghton’s probate wasn’t Joseph’s own gravestone, but his wife Ruth Houghton’s. That is, it’s possible that Joseph Houghton hadn’t paid George Ludwig for Ruth’s stone in 1772, but that this outstanding debt was settled in Joseph’s probate in 1777. This would mean, therefore, that George Ludwig stopped carving gravestones altogether in 1772 (he has five stones dated that year).
          I have also come across another of George Ludwig Geyer’s stones – that for Sarah Hixson (1769) in the Chestnut Hill cemetery (code 1027) in Sharon, MA.

ADDITIONAL  GRAVESTONES
NEWPORT'S  COMMON  BURYING  GROUND



          I recently acquired the 2 DVDs that accompany John Sterling’s Newport Rhode Island Colonial Burial Grounds (2009), available from the Rhode Island Genealogical Society. These provide images of 8500 gravestones – the vast majority from Newport’s Common Burying Ground (my code 744). This allowed me to identify 30 additional stones carved by men whose work I analyzed in Volume II, but which are not included in the Excel spreadsheet database accompanying Volume II:
Henry Emmes (14 stones); Samuel Tingley, Jr. (10 stones), Franklin Cooley (4 stones), Joseph J. Fenner (1 stone), and William Throop (1 stone).

In addition, I changed the attribution of the stone for Judith Luther (1821) from Richard Adams to Ira Washburn.

          You can add these stones to the Excel spreadsheet database in the way I instructed for entry (1) of this list of additions/corrections (see above).

NOTE: Notice that 6 of these entries at the bottom of the list are italicized. This indicates that these stones were signed by the carvers they're attributed to. However, when you copy this list to add it to the Excel spreadsheet database, this italicization will not be preserved. You will have to italicize them yourself in the Excel database after you transfer them there.
Also, please change the carver of the stone for Judith Luther (1821) from Richard Adams to Ira Washburn.

ADDITIONAL  GRAVESTONES  
VERNON  GROVE  CEMETERY,  MILFORD, MA



          In the course of my research for Volume II, I concentrated on burial grounds likely to have the work of the specific carvers I was targeting. Yet I could not revisit, certainly, all of the 3500 burial grounds noted in the gravestone database of over 22,000 stones. I was fortunate to able to rely on the Find A Grave website to fill in many blanks; yet even here, I did not re-check all Find A Grave burial grounds before I sent Volume II to the printer. What I provide here are 18 additional stones from Vernon Grove cemetery in Milford, MA. This was a cemetery I never visited. These were carved by:

Coomer Soule II (8), Levi Maxcy (7), Calvin Darby (1), Daniel Hastings (1), Isaiah Cushman Soule (1).

          The entry for Adam Chapin (1832) is italicized, indicating that this stone was signed by the carver Calvin Darby.

          The cemetery code is 686a.

          I should note that the stone for Abel Albee (1817), carved by Coomer Soule II, includes a small face on the knob at the top of the urn lid. This is now the latest occurrence of a face on Coomer II's stones.
          (Please review the instructions for adding these entries to the Excel database that I provided at the beginning of this series of updates at (1) JUNE, 2015)

ADDITIONAL  GRAVESTONES
CHAPEL  CEMETERY,  MARSHFIELD,  MA



          My treatment in Volume I focused on the resident carvers of Plymouth, Kingston and Cape Cod. Now that Volume II has appeared, I am backtracking to the burial grounds I initially canvassed for Volume I, looking for the work of carvers I examined in Volume II (or stones relevant to Volume I, but missed). Many new relevant stones can be added to the database in these (mainly Volume I) burial grounds.

          For example, I singled out only 3 gravestones in Volume I from the Congregational Chapel cemetery in Marshfield, MA. I now add the following 37 stones from this cemetery, carved by:

Washburn, Bildad (13)
Hiram Tribble (8) [1 signed]
Michael Gallagher (4) [1 signed]
William Hudson Soule (4)
Lewis Johnson (3) [2 signed]
Alpheus Cary, Jr. (2)
Nathan Fobes (1)
Asaph Soule (1)
John Tribble (1)

          The stone for Luther Sprague Jr. (1842) is significant. It is signed by Lewis Johnson, but the urn is quite like that of his employee Michael Gallagher. While this may mean that Lewis Johnson signed Gallagher’s work, the urn is more crudely carved. This may suggest that Lewis Johnson himself carved the stone in Gallagher’s style – or that Gallagher was not as careful on this stone as he was on his others, including the 2 Williamson stones, dated the same year.

MICHAEL  GALLAGHER



          Michael Gallagher was a very successful immigrant Irish stonecutter, discussed on pp. 550-556 in Volume II. His Irish nationalism appears to have been a factor in his violent encounter with an English sea captain, as reported in the November 1, 1848 issue of the Boston Evening Transcript:


William Smith O'Brien (1803-1864) was an Irish nationalist Member of Parliament and leader of the Young Ireland movement. He was convicted of sedition for his part in the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848 (the same year as the incident involving Michael Gallagher), but his sentence of death was commuted to deportation.

LEWIS  JOHNSON,  WILLIAM  JOHNSON  &  MICHAEL  GALLAGHER



          In Chapter 17, I considered (beginning on p. 540), the successors to Coomer Soule II in the area around Canton, MA. While it was not too difficult to separate the work of Coomer’s son Cady Soule out of the mix, it was more challenging to identify the work of the two Johnsons (Lewis & William) and Michael Gallagher.
          The reason was that these three men worked together, with each, probably, lettering stones the others carved (and perhaps with one or more younger stonecutters also employed in this shop). Lewis Johnson ran this shop. He was born in 1772, his son William was born in 1812 and Michael Gallagher born in 1813. Lewis would also sign stones carved by his two young employees. By about 1832 (when Lewis was 60, William 20 and Michael 19) all three, I believe were carving simultaneously. I feel fairly confident about the attributions I made to William Johnson and Michael Gallagher (even though they also probably lettered some of each others’ stones), but there was one urn design that I now have second thoughts about. This urn typically had three leaf-like patterns radiating from the bottom of the urn up to the lid. I provided an example in Fig. 17.55, which I attributed to Michael Gallagher.
          This urn design was chiseled more crudely than the other urns found on Williams’s and Michael’s later stones. I had attributed these to Michael, thinking they were among the earliest stones he carved. However, on reviewing this set of about 25 stones (dating mostly from 1828 through 1834), I think it may have been someone else who carved them.
          One reason to look for another carver of this set is that there are stones with William’s and Michael’s more standard urn (without the three ”leaves”) that are dated during the same time – suggesting that this set may have been parallel rather than earlier. For example, while there are 5 stones dated 1832 in this set with leaves, William has 13 stones dated 1832 without the leaves while Michael has 8 1832 stones without the leaves. Also, the chiseling on the set in question seems less skillful than that on Williams’ and Michael’s stones in the same span.
          Could it have been Lewis Johnson who carved them? Lewis did letter many of the stones of this set. (Yet Lewis’ lettering also appears on William’s and Michael’s work.) But Lewis pretty much stuck to carving marble stones. I think it more likely, therefore, that another carver was responsible for this set. Lewis did have a number of sons: the first three were: Lewis Jr. (b1800), Holman (b1802) and Albert (b1808). Perhaps one of these assisted his father (alongside their younger brother William). Yet I found no reference to any of these three having been employed as a stonecutter.
          I have therefore reassigned this set of stones (below) – giving them to the "Johnson, Lewis (shop)." I also found more such stones, and others probably carved by Lewis Johnson, as well as other stones not listed in Volume II’s database.
          To make these changes in the flashdrive database, you should first make a copy of the entire database as a backup. Then sort the database by carver. This will group all of the stones ascribed to Johnson, Lewis in a single block. Then delete this entire block. You can now copy the new block of Lewis Johnson stones into the database using the instructions I outlined before. Here is the new list of Lewis Johnson stones:

DEATH  OF  ABRAHAM  CODNER



Addition to p. 99 on Abraham Codner:

          I recently found online in the following book The War of 1812 U.S. War Department Correspondence, 1812-1815 by John C. Fredriksen the following passage on p. 349:

Sergeant, John
8932 May 11, 1812. New Stockbridge, NY; 1 page; M221/48:3095. Sergeant informs Secretary Eustis that Abraham Codner died after a brief illness and that the Stockbridge Indians under Captain Hendrick have been working to avert war with their Canadian brethren. “Therefore, I hope the government will continue his compensation and agency and not listen to the ill reports of envious whites if any should appear against his conduct and moral character.”

          And so, as I noted on p. 99 in Volume II, it appears that the record of Abraham Codner owning land in Vernon, NY in 1814 was indeed posthumous. Abraham apparently died two years earlier, at age 62.

ADDITIONAL  GRAVESTONES
COHASSET,  HANSON,  HINGHAM,  MARSHFIELD,  PEMBROKE,  SCITUATE  &   WEYMOUTH



          In entries # 12, 15 & 16, above, I provided additional gravestones from cemeteries in Whitman, Brockton and Marshfield, MA – all in the area between Quincy, MA and Plymouth, MA.
          Volume I focused on the resident carvers of Plymouth, Kingston and Cape Cod. Now that Volume II has appeared, I am backtracking to the burial grounds I initially canvassed for Volume I, looking for the work of carvers I examined in Volume II (or stones relevant to Volume I, but missed). Many new relevant stones will thereby be added to the database in these (mainly Volume I) burial grounds.
          This recanvassing has revealed the more extensive productivity of the Plympton carver ASAPH SOULE. I had not yet separated the work of the Soule carvers from one another when I visited these cemeteries before 2006, when Volume I appeared. And I did not revisit them all even after I had separated out the Soules’ work for Volume II. Fortunately, the Find a Grave website has now allowed me to ascribe about 140 new stones to Asaph Soule, with concentrations in Scituate and Marshfield. In the Volume II database, I ascribed only 13 stones Asaph Soule in Marshfield and 6 stones in Scituate. In the additions I provide below, these totals have grown to 102 stones for Marshfield and 29 stones for Scituate. It now appears that this area of Boston’s south shore was Asaph Soule’s principal market – surpassing even the Lakeville-to-Acushnet area, where he as has significant numbers as well.
          Overall, the total number of gravestones I am now attributing to Asaph Soule (by adding those below) has risen from 299 to 437. In contrast, the number I am giving to his older brother Ebenezer Soule Jr. has risen from 346 to only 358. Yet it’s possible that I will discover more of Ebenezer’s stones in cemeteries closer to Plympton (including Cape Cod), once I recanvass in that area.

ROBERT  HOPE  RELATED  TO  GEORGE  T.  HOPE?



          It’s fairly certain that the Boston stonecutter Robert Hope was born in England (and also that he probably was in Virginia before moving to Portland, ME and then Boston, as I reported in item (8), above). The fact that stonecutter George T. Hope was also a Boston resident during about the same span of years may indicate that George was a relative and that he too may have been born in England.
          However, the vital records for Randolph, MA include the death in 1901 of George Hope's daughter Ursula Marie [nee Hope] Bullard (I included a photo of her [Fig. IV.118FD] in Volume II). This death entry notes that her father, George T. Hope, was born in Blooming Grove, NY.
          Yet in the 1900 US Census entry for the widowed Ursula Bullard, living in Randolph, there is a curious response in the column “birthplace of father.” “England” was written in; but a line was struck through this and “New York” was inserted above it. In the 1880 US Census, however (where Ursula Bullard is listed in Boston as “Visola Ballard”), she lists her father’s birthplace as “New York.” Unfortunately, I was unable to find Ursula Bullard (or her unmarried daughter Helen) in the 1870 Census. The 1860 Census did not include a column for birthplace of the father.
          If George T. Hope was born in New York, it is perhaps less likely that he was related to Robert Hope. Yet I suppose it’s possible that George may have immigrated from England to New York, and preferred to identify himself for some reason as having been born in the U.S.
