  1. I suspect that the older stones you have posted as being in Calvary Cemetery in Holyoke, Mass. are actually in the older Elmwood cemetery. The two cemeteries are side by side along Route 5 in Holyoke.

  2. Thanks, you are quite correct. For some reason, the name of the cemetery does not appear on any of my maps, but it is on the front gates.
