FOR YOUR INFORMATION


GIRL SCOUT BRONZE AWARD CANDIDATE, MISS EMMA BRACKETT
PRESENTS THE BOOK OF RECORDS TO CEMETERIES DIRECTOR, JOSEPH DUMAIS
     The Book of Records is a compilation of material which Emma organized from my research and previous records.  It contains:  1.  Alphabetical list of the names (47 to date), 2.  A record by date of death, 3. A record by age groupings, 4.  A record by burial site containing  family relationships, 5. Death records (will add to this as we find them, 6.  Miscellaneous Records;
surveyor's maps, Inscriptions, Military Records.  

     The purpose was to put together,  in one place, a binder that others who are interested and doing family research, could access easily.  It is a beginning; not a complete record of the remnant that is the Grand Trunk Cemetery.  In time, copies of my blog posts will be kept in this book as another resource.  Joe Dumais has offered to print these; a gift from the city.  How wonderful!

     It has been my honor and pleasure to work with Emma and her sister Girl Scouts Megan Cunningham and Ella Pillsbury over the last several months to continue the legacy begun by my two former (now adult) Girl Scouts, Samantha Allshouse and Kayla Theriault.  These young ladies continued the important mission to preserve,to care for, and to beautify the small, historical gem, known as the Grand Trunk Cemetery. 

      On June 16, 2014, at a special Girl Scout Ceremony, the three girls and 17 other Junior Girl Scouts who have designed and executed other projects, will be awarded the Junior Girl Scout Bronze Award.  Samantha and Kayla will be present, and fittingly, will present Emma, Megan and Ella the well deserved award.  Kudos to the Girl Scouts and their families!
