Nicely maintained family plot. Didn't take much to draw the mental dotted lines between blood and family members. Nice piece of history. The cemetery driveways serve as a nice, peaceful walking path through the massive cemetery.

There are many notable people here, always remember, " never argue with stupid people, they will take you down to their level and beat you with experience." Words to live by, in troubling times!

Yup, he lived in Hartford but summered in Elmira. Interesting spot. His headstone is two fathoms high, or "mark twain". a little tricky to find in the cemetary.
