Newspaper Clipping: Ruth Boomer

Below is a newspaper clipping from the Fairhaven Star, from August 11, 1888. Much of the information recalled by 89-year-old Ruth Boomer cannot be verified by any other records. She is the only person known to name specific individuals who were buried at Oxford Village. Her memory of the location of the burial ground in relation to Reuben Jenney's house seems to be incorrect.
