“SPARE THESE STONES” Presentation on Cemetery Inscription in Stamford by Ron Marcus and Andrew Mellilo.
Admission $15 pp (refreshments included)
Ron Marcus, Head Research Librarian of the Stamford Historical Society, will focus on two pioneers of graveyard conservation and preservation. Samuel W. Morrell spent much of his time cataloging the graves of war veterans. He compiled lists of inscriptions of stones, many of which are no longer legible today. Dick Roberts, a former SM&NC curator and artist, spent much of his later life documenting the cemeteries in Stamford and producing illustrated maps of stones. Andrew Melillo, who has spearheaded the restoration of Northfield Cemetery and has produced the first map of the graveyard, will bring us up to the current effort to restore these historic places for future generations.
