Be wary of family legends (even if you don't know they are legends). I was told my great-grandparents were buried in the beautiful Mt Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge. Cousin David recently checked out a cemetery in Chicopee, MA & found great-grandparents - and grandparents - tombstones. Finally went to Mt Auburn; they were cremated at Mt Auburn but sent to Chicopee for burial.....
