I have managed to resolve my problem importing images to this blog. Before I begin the next blog on Edward Cole, I wanted to send out the images I had hoped to put into the Ebenezer blog.

These pictures were taken in the late 80's early 90's. This was Ebenezer's farm that was passed on to his son and eventually to his grandson.  There were some flat stones near his headstone, indicating that babies were buried there. If Ebenezer did drown there is no information stating whether or not his body was recovered. Therefore there is no certainty he is actually buried here.  Apparently this is a rather difficult place to get to on a dirt road, which has become a lover's lane.  There are some local stories of this area being haunted. It may all be the overactive imaginations of teenagers, but I haven't had the opportunity to test it out.  Maybe someday.

As can be seen in these next two images, Ebenezer's stone has fallen over and is now in two pieces.  These were taken c. 2012. Time has taken its toll.  Since this is considered a private family plot there is no upkeep on the area.

RIP Ebenezer Cole.

  1. Hi Bette, my name is Alex. My mothers side of the family are Cole's, and I grew up in Dorchester. I noticed that you have taken pictures of Ebenezers gravestone. I was hoping to find that spot someday. Could I please be so nosy as to ask where exactly that is and if it is a difficult trek
