George Washington Boyer

The mystery of "who died in the fire" still continues.....

Family stories say that one or both of George Washington Boyer's daughters and possibly his wife died in a house fire. Up until the visit to Greenmount Cementery last week we did not know the death dates were all different, but that is exactly what the cemetery's plot record shows. So from this it does not appear that more than one person could have died in a fire.

The cemetery records also show that the only gravestone marking the plot is that of Baby Edith Boyer, however upon visiting, no gravestone, other than one that was illegible, could be found. Here is a photo of the plot at Greenmount - not much to see!
