    • In August 2008 I went to the St. Denis Cemetery in Ft. Fairfield, ME to see Mary Bell's gravesite, which was listed on her death certificate from the town hall, hoping to find Sophie's grave there also. Met Linda Zapatka, who is famous for writing books about the area, doing research at the cemetery; when I told her whose grave I was looking for, she brought me right over to Sophie Clark McGough's gravesite; I was thrilled.
      Sophie's gravestone says 'McGough: Sophie Clark: wife of John McGough: 1835-1925'.
      The caretaker of St. Denis Cemetery told me that he had been propping Sophie's headstone up for years but it was crumbling at the base & needed some work; I contacted some family members of her branch to help pay for the cost of repairs; I received no responses so I paid for the repairs to her headstone & the work was carried out in May/June 2009; the pictures of her headstone are from after the repairs were done.
