Thomas Shephard Dorr, Job Harding,


My husband and I were recently on a vacation in Lubec, Maine. We read about a captain and his nephew who died in a shipwreck and were buried where the sea dropped them. There is a picture of a grave in the "Summertime 2003" publication found in the town. It describes the graves being located "across the drive from the Lubec Wastewater Treatment Plant".

We asked for information at the local library...but were surprised to know that local people didn't know anything about this cemetary. One library employee made a call and got some information for us. We were told we could find this cemetary, which included some of Lubec's first Settlers, across the street from the Wastewater and Recycle plants in the tall grass. We searched for about 1 1/2 hours without any success. There are a lot of wild rosebushes with prickers and we got very scratched up. Some areas are so thick with bushes, you can barely walk through them. I was very dissappointed we didn't find them, but we had to head back home to New York State. I found it unsettling that the town didn't care for the graves of some of it's first settlers. I would be happy to send you a photocopy of the article if you'd like one. Thank you for any help you can give.
