In Reply to: Clayton Woodbury b.Mar. 9, 1899 N.H. ??? by Gary Knight of 826

Gary, I'm sure we're related. Clayton is my great grandfather. He married Rosetta A. Knight (daughter of Ernest W. and Mary E.[McDonald]), who had siblings Benjamin E. and Rita (who m. Wallace E. Gould). Rita & Wallace are buried to the left of that plot, and Ben is also in Pine Tree Cemetery (which is in Brownville Jct-not Milo!), but a different spot. Rosetta and Clayton would have a son Ernest (b.1922, but died of leukemia @ age 6), then a daughter Marjorie E. [05/12/1929-08/28/1994](who m. Harlan Douglas Morong [06/14/1927-10/20/2002] of Lynn, MA). These are my maternal grandparents, and they are buried right behind you if you are looking at the Woodbury/Knight plot. The Woodbury name stopped with young Ernie. Clayton was not a Baptist minister in Bangor. He moved to Lynn, MA then got work at Sylvania in Salem, MA making light bulbs (which would lead to him dying of beryllium poisoning in 1966). Marj & HD (my grandparents) would have 5 children [old to young]-Diane, Judy, Mary{my mom}, Cindy, and Douglas. The Morong branch would yield a combined 12 children at this level, and adopt 3 more. Doug's daughter, Heather, lived for only a few days. She is the infant you see buried with the Knights, and would have been my 1st cousin. I can tell you that Rosetta and Clayton both moved in with my grandparents @ 237 Chatham St., Lynn, MA, which is where they both died eventually. Rosetta had heart trouble(d.1963)-angina(-sp?). Wallace & Rita, by the way, had a daughter Mrgaret that died at birth, a daughter Rosetta-Anne, and a son 'Wally.' Funny that I read this 10 years later, and on the same day I returned from the Morong camp at Schoodic Lake. I knealt at those same graves to chat for a bit 2 days ago. Uncanny. Please get in touch with me if you get to read this. I know tons more about the Knights and local history. I live in West Peabody, MA. -Shawn
