Frederick M. Robinson collection

 Collection — Folder: S1129
Identifier: S1129

Scope and Contents

The certificate of ownership which Crown Hill Cemetery gave to Frederick M. Robinson was photocopied front and back, thus making four papers. One paper is just the deed cover sheet. The certificate itself requires two pages for the top half and for the lower half. The fourth sheet is a list of the rules and regulations to which lot owners are subject.

Mr. Robinson paid $100.00 for Lot 107 in Section 25, containing 288 "superficial feet." The certificate, dated March 20, 1897, was signed by the president of Crown Hill, Allen M. Fletcher; by the secretary, George P. Anderson; and by the superintendent who was a notary public, John Chislett.
