Fortunately, I have always known the burial place of Arthur Poor. Unfortunately, my grandmother, Florence Irene Poor, became estranged from her family, and from her mother, Marion Florence Melanson, and we were unaware that Arthur had three sisters. I have since learned that all three married, lived, and died in Andover, Maine, and that they are all buried in Woodlawn Cemetery. We think of them, and are sorry Arthur is so far from the rest of his family.

We have also learned that although Marion Florence Melanson and Arthur Poor divorced in 1927, and Marion Florence married and divorced again, she is buried in the plot next to Arthur, her ex-husband. Her grave is unmarked; we will try to rectify that. In the meantime, we remember her in the picture of Arthur's grave.
