Today’s video is Part 1 of 2 parts of my visit to the Malletts Bay Cemetery in Malletts Bay, Vermont. There are a few headstones with photographs. What I like about that is seeing what the person or people looked like. It brings them to life, if you will.
“…Malletts Bay Cemetery with a view of the lake. This cemetery is located on West Lakeshore Drive across from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Fishing Access and next to a private residence and an empty lot – good thing there is a view!
According to Morin, this cemetery is just about full. From what we can tell, Julius Dudley was one of the grantors of at least one-quarter acre in 1836, but “there’s no deed,” according to a conversation with Joyce Sweeney some years ago. Joyce remembers her father saying that a Brownell gave some land . . . “It’s always been a family-oriented cemetery,” she added, and a look at some of the headstones confirms this with families such as Thayer, Prim, Barstow, Spear, Porter and Coates. In earlier times, the cemetery was known as “North Beach,” with the name “South Beach” assigned to the Champlain Cemetery located in the Clay Point area of town.”-https://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/news/2018/06/30/history-space-cemeteries-colchester/36522643/
