Maple Grove is divided into “Old” and “New”. This cemetery is located within the city limits of Hoosick Falls. The old and new sections are on opposite sides of the street.
Here is a picture of the old section as it looked in the fall of 2003 when we visited.
Through the gate, down the hill to the right we found the graves of my great-grandparents and two of their daughters who died young. Orlando William “O.W.” Palmer, 1846-1930, and his wife Libbie E. Winn, 1855-1921 have an impressive old marker on their graves. you can just see the GAR marker that was on the gravesite. My mother’s cousin was instrumental in seeing that the GAR markers were placed on graves of Civil War veterans in the cemetery.
There were stained glass windows to memorialize the children in the local Methodist church, which the family attended. I did not take photos inside the church, but I wish I had.
