G.R. 3. - gravestone record, Maple Grove Cemetery, Head of Westport, Vital Records to 1850. This cemetery was originally supervised by a private group, the Maple Grove Cemetery Association but now is owned by the Town of Westport and under the supervision of the Cemetery Director. This cemetery is next to Linden Grove Cemetery. There are three additions to the data for Maple Grove not available for the private cemeteries: photo(s) of each stone, a map of the cemetery showing relative locations of plots and the name of the owner(s) of the plot. Detailed information about the stone is left unspecified. Plots of twelve graves were originally sold, but over time plots were divided into one, two, four, six and twelve graves. Numbering is not consistent, so that there exists, e.g., plot 5.5 with six graves, plot 60 with twelve graves and plot 60A with one grave, but not next to each other. In Section A some plots on the East side are denominated by letter names (A - Q). Data and photographs are being entered (as of June 2010.) Note: The pump is located on Plot 173. The office building (unattended) and parking are located on plots 123-130 and 211-214. Please check back periodically as we update and provide interactivity with these three sections.
