Letters to Oak Hill Cemetery: From John A. Poole, 31 Locust Ave., Lexington, MA. April 5, 1961 Oak Hill Cemetery Company 255 South Ave. Battle Creek, Mich. Gentlemen: In [sic] working up a genealogy for the Adams branch of my family, I have come across records stating that my grandfather and grandmother, also some great grandparents are buried at Oak Hill. I have very little information on them and would appreciate any data you might have on the following:; 1. Sarah Belle Adams 2. Yates Adams 3. Martha Anderson Adams 4. Charles A. Hamilton, first husband of Sarah (1.) 5. John Adams, brother? of Yates (2) 6. Wife of John (5.) A letter from my mother, Marjorie Anderson Adams Poole, indicates that the lot number is 797 for the above. In lot 665, are my great grandparents as follows: 7. John N. Farmer 8. Lana? Scramlin wife of (7.) 9 Elsie Farmer 10. Nannie? Farmer 11. Mary? second wife of (7.) I would greatly appreciate any vital statistics of the above families. To my knowledge, no plats were ever made up for my family as indicated in your letter to my father Clarence F. Poole, Chicago, Ill., dated Feb. 3, 1953. If these plats are available, I would appreciate a copy of them. Sincerely yours, John A. Poole --- My grandfather, Clarence F. Poole wrote to Oak Hill Cemetery on January 30, 1953. Gentlemen: I am writing to inquire regarding the status of Lot 797 which, I believe, is entered in the names of John A. Adams and Yates A. Adams, and the East 1/2 of Lot 665 which, I believe is entered in the name of John N. Farmer. I am executor of the estate of Marjorie A. Poole who passed away a few weeks ago.. Among her papers, I find a letter which was hand written to you but never mailed, this letter being dated June 6, 1948, and reading as follows: 'Oak Hill Cemetery Co: Dear Sirs: I have made an effort to trace the heirs of John A. Adams to whom is ascribed the ownership of Lot 797, W 1/2 and have not been able to trace them. They were last in Texas - Beeville - in 1910 or 1912 and there was a Howard Adams and two daughters, but I have heard nothing of them since. I have hoped to go to Battle Creek before this time to settle the matter of perpetual care, etc., but have been ill and unable to do so. However, I expect to be in Battle Creek in the near future. Yours Sincerely, /s/ Marjorie A. Poole' So far as I know, the statement in the letter above is correct since Mrs. Poole had never been able to find any trace of the John A. Adams branch of the family. -------------- Old Colonial Sterling Silver Flatware, Silverware by Towle Silversmiths Old Colonial is one of Towle's longest running designs, debuting in 1895 (originally called Colonial). One of Old Colonial's most notable features is the grooves in the bowls of the spoons and forks. And it has always been quite common for a young lady's Hope Chest to be filling up with silver monogrammed with her maiden initial, silver which she would expect to use for all of her married life, whatever the initials of her husband. And husbands, as a rule, don't give a thought to the fork, but what's on it. My mother has lovely flatware from her parents engraved with the first initial of her last name. We use it all the time and no one has ever said a thing. ______ Notes: At University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI Sang in The University Choral Union, was a bass.
