Message on findagrave.com thanks to Bobbi Lynn

"According to church records, Albert was buried in this cemetery near George Baker. Albert died at 42 years of age of spinal meningitis. He was buried in a plot owned by William Baker. Albert was buried in the plot along with William's wife, Rosanna."

"There was one headstone with no readable information. According to church records, this was probably George Baker and I have attached the picture to his entry. George died in 1936 and is buried in a plot owned by Mary Campbell. There is one other Campbell in the immediate area."

"The location of both George and Albert is next to the stone wall surrounding the chapel. Mary Smith is the headstone that George is bured next to and Albert was buried in that immediate area though exactly where is unknown."

NOTE: Is Mary E. Campbell the same person as Mary E. Robarge in the 1900 census (see above). Did she marry a Campbell? If so, she is living with Philip F. Brady in the 1910 US Census in Kent County, RI.
