Parmenter Children

 Siblings: Althea and Ezekiel Sidney Parmenter 
This is the double grave of two of Ezekiel and Keziah (Parmenter) Parmenter's children who died very young.

Sometimes small children's birth records are hard to find especially if they were not given a first name right away. Althea has a death record and it is indicated that she is buried in this cemetery, which at that time was the Wilson St. cemetery in Marlborough. (GR#5)

Ezekiel Sidney Parmenter was the last child born to this couple and he also has just a death record which indicates this cemetery. Since twenty years passed between the death dates of these siblings, this stone was probably put here in 1823. 

These are in this family to be buried in the Evergreen Cemetery. There were many other children born to Ezekiel and Keziah but they lived to adulthood and are buried elsewhere.
