Range P Grave 22 Willow Avenue
 Edgar G. Holt died on the U. S. S. Kearsarge where he was a Musician and was interred at the cemetery on September 20, 1918, with J. B. Cole and Son as the undertakers. This is a puzzle as the stone states that he was born in 1890, while his office card records his age as 18 years, 3 months and 5 days! Only one fact is correct. Edgar Holt was a Chelsea resident.

Note the Odd Fellows symbol on the stone of the Holt family.
