Sawtelle Cemetery Plot
On 1 July 1999, I received the following short note from Robert R. Pyle, Head Librarian at Northeast Harbor Library, describing another small cemetery plot on Islesford:
Little Cranberry Island, Maine
Just found a moment to browse your site and was impressed with the Islesford cemetery listings. Very helpful. Might it be useful to include the Sawtelle plot behind the Islesford Museum? It includes:
William Otis Sawtelle (1874-1939)
Physicist, historian, genealogist, author and founder of the Museum.
Louise Burpee Sawtelle (1877-1941)
Wife of W.O.S.
Eleanor Otis Sawtelle (1913-1956)
Two more of their daughters are at Sand beach cemetery. They are Margery S. Biscomb and Janet S. Peake. Both are buried next to their respective husbands - C. John Biscomb and Edwin D. Peake.
The eldest two children ... [are still alive; my] mother lives in Southwest Harbor and Uncle Ege in Portland.
Y'r obd't sv't,
Robert R. Pyle
