Maine XII

Wells, Maine lies a little south of Kennebunkport, famous for being one of the homes of the Bush family.

Along one of the man thoroughfares, Post Road,  is the Ocean View Cemetery and to my astonishment today, I read that it is one of 200 in the area.

 This view is of a memorial that seems to list all that served, both in Korea and Vietnam.

These from the area were lost in 'Nam.

There are many veterans resting here, lots from the Civil War and I saw one stone with an 1811 date on it. don't know if it is the oldest. there are also family groups with many dates very close to each other, perhaps some kind of epidemic or other disaster.

Next time, on the 7th, we will take another look at Maryland, so join me there at 9:00am.
