Subject: [GM-L] Pittsfield Cemetery, assistance
Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2002 05:34:00 -0500
I wonder if someone out there might be able to assist me. I am interested
in the grave site of Caleb Barnum, who is buried in Pittsfield Cemetery in
the Forest Mound section. The grave number is listed as the North Border.
I would very much like a picture of the headstone.
Caleb Barnum was the seventh minister of First Parish Church, in Taunton.
He spoke out on the liberty of the colonies numerous times and was a
member of the Sons of Liberty. He served with colonial forces as a
chaplain and contracted smallpox on a mission to Canada. He died at the
home of a Pittsfield minister. At some point, a few of us will take a trip
out the Pittsfield from Taunton, but in the meantime - a picture of his
headstone would be a welcome addition to our church archives.
Any response would be greatly appreciated, and I would be willing to pay
for the picture. Please respond by email if interested.
