Tombstone Tuesday - Mary Louise Garfield (1879 - 1957)

Pine Hill Cemetery, West Bridgewater, Massachusetts (2011)

Born in Plattsburgh, New York, Mary Louise Garfield (nee Antoine), my great-great grandmother, was the wife of the late Edward Alton Garfield and mother of the late Henry A. Garfield, Jennie Glover, Mabel Carlson, Edith Clifford, and Lucile Anderson (my great-grandmother). 

Mary was a seamstress. She resided in Brockton, Massachusetts for most of her life.

Her husband, Edward, passed away in 1918 and is buried in West Dennis Cemetery, West Dennis, Massachusetts. Mary was unable to be buried with him because their children could not afford it so they placed her in Pine Hill Cemetery instead.
