Thanks for the information. I was a little kid when I saw the grave, so it's good to know just where it is again.

One correction. Julie's (Jullia's) death certificate shows the same birth/death date you have, by Merritt Thorn wasn't her father. She was adopted while a very young child in Canada. The last name of her adopting family was David. She married Anthony Robichaud who was my grandfather.

My father passed away about two months ago at the age of 90. He provided pages of family information and I'm sure there was lots more.

Julie (Julia), his mother, was living in Westbrook at the time of her death. She knew a man named Fred Thorn, who I presume was the one related to the Merritt Thorn you mentioned. Fred Thorn was interested in a car that Julie Robichaud owned and traded his burial plot for the car.

I'm curious, do the records list Merritt Thorn as her father?
