Lot 1061 Dahlia Path
 Zuvilla G. Gove was born in 1881 in North Lubec, Washington County, Maine, to Lowell Gove, a native of North Lubec, and Laura M. Doyle Gove, a native of Rockland, Knox County, Maine. She resided in Boston, was employed as a Milliner, and died from Phthisis and Exhaustion on August 8, 1900, at the age of 19 years, 3 months and 8 days. R. & E. F. Gleason were the undertakers, and she was interred on August 10, 1900.

Knox County, Maine is named after General Henry Knox, a resident of Thomaston, Maine, who brought the captured cannons from Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain in Upstate New York to Dorchester Heights on Dorchester Neck (now South Boston) during the Siege of Boston in 1775 and 1776. In Dorchester he resided in a large house at the corner of Washington Street and Welles Avenue which was later occupied by the famed Orator Daniel Webster in 1822.
