He has a regular monument, a marble Vet's monument, a headstone and a newer granite flat-to-the-ground Vet's monument. This means he has his name or initials on FOUR gravestones! Sadly, his wife Hannah Josephine TOURGEE has NO gravestone. She bore him seven sons, too. Doesn't seem fair. Two sons did not live to adulthood. One is buried here with his father and I can't find where the other is buried.
Her father paid for her to be buried nearby to her husband but in the TOURGEE section.
This Saturday, I will be teaming up with Robert Grandchamp to talk to the RI Genealogical Society about how history and genealogy work together. I hope they enjoy it. I am not using the computer so I made a display board with photos and documents. Wish us luck!
