Tombstone Tuesday ~ Officer Charlie Chase

Grave of Charles K.D. Chase 

Buried in the family plot of his first wife,
Artena Maud Carney

Evergreen Cemetery
Portland, Maine

Charlie Chase was a familiar figure around Morrills Corner, in Portland, his policeman's beat. After his first wife died in 1949, he courted and married another recent widow, my great great aunt, Catherine "Cassie" Hamilton Bustin.*  She outlived him by 7 years, and is, herself, buried with her first husband, Thomas Herman Bustin, in Pine Grove Cemetery in Falmouth, Maine.
