The Straw Album/Tombstones and Watson Tombstones


The Album
The displayed pages of the Straw album came from Florence Agnes (Straw) Jones' Bismarck, North Dakota home. It is speculated that it was her morther's (Florence Jane {Watson} Straw) and Florence Agnes wrote in the identifying names after her mother died, so all the people in the album could not be identified.


In the 1850's Florence  Jane (WATSON) Straw and her brother Frederick Eugene were separated  - She went to live with the George King  family in Bangor, Maine and her brother went to live with his Aunt Susan (Watson) Weston, in Hillsdale, Michigan. Their father and mother  (Samuel Newell and Eliza nee Pierce) died in their early 30s (1852 and 1857) and were buried in the South Levant Cemetery, Levant Maine in the Watson family plot. Samuel's parents - Stephen and Hannah -  are buried in the same plot along with some of Samuel's siblings.

 Daniel Straw, Jane Watson's husband was borne in Guilford, Maine. His father and mother - David Robinson and Caroline Augusta (nee Ayers) and most of Daniel's siblings are buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Guilford, Maine.

Caroline Augusta )Ayers) Straw came from Sangerville. Maine where her father Dr. Moses Robinson amd her mother Lydia Coffin Hale are buried in The Villahe Cemetery, Sangerville, Maine.
