Name: Rev. John March's Memorial Stone
Date/Date Range: 1898 - 1910
Physical Description: 57 glass plate negatives. 13 x 10.5 cm each.
Historical Context: Images of late nineteenth and early twentieth century town of Maine.
Notes: Glass plate negatives taken by J. A. Waterman. Images depict Gorham, Kittery, Falmouth, Yarmouth, and Portland. This photo shows the gravestone of Rev. John Newmarch, an early pastor of First Congregational Church in Kittery, Maine. The grave was originally located in an oak grove behind what is now St. Mark's United Methodist Church (where this photo was taken), also in Kittery, but was moved in 1936 to the Old Burying Ground across the street from the First Congregational Church itself. Note: "March" for "Newmarch" is an error on the original paper sleeve of the negative.
