the gibbs sisters - hannah and polly

On a rare day off from work (June 13th), Patti and I took a trip to Camden, Maine, to search Mt. View Cemetery for the gravestones of Hannah (Gibbs) Mansfield and Mary aka Polly (Gibbs) Mansfield. They were daughters of my 4th-great-grandparents, Elisha & Silence (Harrington) Gibbs. Hannah and Mary were married in Camden to brothers, Thomas and Daniel Mansfield, sons of Daniel and Lydia (Newhall) Mansfield.

Polly, wife of Capt. Daniel Mansfield,
died Jan. 30, 1829, aged 48 years.

Hannah, wife of Thomas Mansfield,
Died Mar. 1, 1854,
AE. 72 yrs. 11 mo's.
Thomas is buried alongside Hannah, but where is Daniel buried?

Hi Dale,
I am descended from Sally Gibbs (Mansfield) Russ, who married Daniel/David Russ and died young, along with her husband, in Camden, Maine.
Thank you for your post. Living in New Mexico, I have only visited Camden once on a genealogy visit, and ran out of time when it came time to walk the graveyard. I have been to Salt Lake City to the Mormon genealogy library, which is very useful, but it doesn't satisfy the itch to see / hear / smell / experience where my ancestors lived.
