The front page of the Boston Globe had a very well written and touching story about Rebecca and Arthur Crumpler, and how the grave stone dedication came to be. Globe staff reporter Brian MacQuarrie, did phone interviews for background material and attended the event on Thursday, July 16, 2020 at Fairview Cemetery.
On Saturday morning, Patty who purchased the Globe in Shop & Shop, felt she wanted to find the grave site for the remarkable couple from the article. She mentioned that she had shown the article to a young Black woman in the checkout line who also said she would plan to read more and go to the cemetery.
The grave sites are on Aspen Avenue which is to the left of the flag pole near the Fairview Cemetery office. Drive/walk down to the 5th tree on the right and you will see the back of the grave stones slightly up an incline. (A-90, A-91)
