|The Parkinsons' Plot, photograph furnished by Green-Wood|
This morning I was saddened to read about vandalism at Green-Wood. In 2003, my husband and I visited Green-Wood, along with my cousin's daughter, Wendy Marinaccio. We went there in search of Henry's gravesite and in search of the gravesite of my Great Grandparents, Andrew Nimmo (1864-1912) and Kate Parkinson (1865-1915).
We never did find Henry's resting place, but afterwards Green-Wood sent me the above photograph of the Parkinson's plot.
|Here I am in 2003, happy to be looking for the Parkinsons.|
|Here is Wendy. We didn't find the Parkinsons.|
Little did we know that we were just on the wrong side of the path.
|We did find the locations of Andrew and Kate's resting place, |
but were disappointed to learn afterwards
that we didn't find the gravestone,
because they were buried in an unmarked grave.

He couldn't stand the heat.
