Lot 789 Eglantine Path
 In 1936 Arthur W. Gross of 186 Willard Street in West Quincy placed this stone with the “Daughters of the American Revolution” insignia for Sarah B. Emerson Schallenbach and Albert Emerson on the lot.

Albert Emerson was born in Dorchester in 1887 to John A. Schallenbach and Sarah B. Emerson Schallenbach. He went by the name of Albert Emerson and was the husband of Eunice Shiverick. Mr. Emerson resided at 17 Springfield Street in Belmont in Middlesex County and worked as a Mechanical Engineer for decades at the Boston Navy Yard in Charlestown with his last day as June 22, 1938. He died on July 2, 1938, from Cardio-renal disease at the age of 50 years, 10 months and 23 days. He was cremated at the Forest Hills Crematory in Jamaica Plain, and his ashes were interred in the same grave of his mother on September 8, 1938, with R. « E. F. Gleason as the undertakers.
