As I said, there's a lot of my Barrows, Ellis, and Griffith relatives buried at the
Union Cemetery in Carver, Ma. I'm not familiar with many of the names since
I haven't done a lot of work on the collateral lines yet. Many of them are buried
at the far right end of this lane, which also includes monuments to members of
the Savery family who were prominent in the town's early history.

As you reach the end of the lane there are several Ellis and Griffith family plots
with wrought iron fences around them. There's a curious little cupola with a tile
floor between the plot of my 6x great grandfather Ephraim Griffith/Griffeth and
that of his son Obed's family.

Beyond then are a few larger family vaults and a monument.:

This last vine covered vault is of Matthias Ellis and his wife, Sarah Seymour
Forsyth.Sarah died at Stuttgart, Germany in 1876 and Matthias died three years
later back in Carver, There's a story there that I definitely have to look into.
